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.

Until October, though, Moto will probably present the Morrison on September 10, together with the Sholes for Verizon,
