Nokia X3 coming to Verizon?

A few days ago, the FCC approved a mysterious Nokia phone (RM-687) which features CDMA and EV-DO connectivity.

Naturally, Engadget suggests that this phone could be released by Verizon in the US (of course, it may also come to Sprint – although, for some reason, Sprint never launches Nokia phones).

According to the Bluetooth SIG, the RM-687 is the CDMA / EV-DO version of the Nokia X3 (model number X3-01), manufactured for Nokia by Taiwanese ODM Compal.

Given the recent history between Verizon and Nokia (the launch of Nokia Twist and Nokia Shade), it’s probably safe to assume the largest US carrier will also launch the Nokia X3.

The X3 is an entry-level music phone with features that include: 2.2 inch QVGA display, dedicated music keys, 3.5mm headset jack, stereo FM radio, 3.2MP camera and MicroSD card support. If Verizon intros the Nokia X3, the phone will probably be really cheap on contract.
