Nokia 7230 passes the FCC with US 3G
Officially announced less than one month ago, the Nokia 7230 has just been approved by the FCC, which blessed the phone’s use on US 3G bands (850 / 1900 MHz).
This (theoretically) means that AT&T can launch the phone in the US, or, if you’re in Canada, Rogers or Fido may pick it up.
The 7230 is a fancy-looking slider with decent features, including: 2.4 inch QVGA display, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm headset jack, Nokia Maps, stereo FM radio, 3.2MP camera and MicroSD card support. There’s no GPS and neither Wi-Fi, in case you’re wondering.
In Europe, Nokia 7230’s retail price will be of about $150, so if a North American carrier decides to offer it, it will probably do it for free on contract.
