FCC unveils new phones for T-Mobile: Nokia 3710a, Nokia RM-511 and Motorola T56KV1 (Morrison?)
The FCC has just approved three phones that are destined for T-Mobile USA, as they all feature 850/1900 GSM and WCDMA 1700 connectivity.
The phones are: Nokia RM-509 (actually the 3710a, recently approved with AT&T 3G bands), Nokia RM-511 and Motorola T56KV1.
Let’s start with what we know.
The Nokia 3710a / RM-509 is the North American version of Nokia 3710 fold. It’s a mid-end clamshell with a QVGA internal display, S40 UI, GPS, 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth and, obviously, 3G (1700MHz for T-Mobile).
This is the Nokia 3710a:
Nokia RM-511 is also a clamshell, since it was tested by the FCC both with the flip closed and with the flip open.
Unfortunately, other details about the RM-511 are not available.
And now comes the interesting part. As far as I know, T-Mobile USA never had a Motorola phone with 3G and/or Wi-Fi. Well, this Motorola T56KV1 has them both – and, sadly, that’s all we know about it.
Coincidentally, the T-Mobile bound Android-powered Motorola Morrison also has 3G (1700MHz) and Wi-Fi. So there’s quite a good chance for the T56KV1 to be the Morrison – especially since the rumored release date for Morrison is October 21, and the release can’t take place without FCC’s approval.
