Nokia E6 passes the FCC with AT&T and T-Mobile 3G support

The FCC has recently approved the Nokia RM-609, which is none other than the unannounced Nokia E6.

According to the documents found at the FCC, the E6 features tri-band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity (850 / 1700 / 1900 MHz), thus it’s compatible with the networks of AT&T and T-Mobile USA.

We know that T-Mobile is getting ready to launch the Nokia C7 Astound soon, so it may want to carry the E6, too.

The E6 will likely be Nokia’s first smartphone to feature a landscape touchscreen display (640 x 480 pixels) and a full QWERTY keyboard. We don’t know when Nokia plans to announce the new handset, but it could happen in the next few months.

    I think it’s very smart for Nokia to make smartphones with 3G support for both ATT and TMobile for the US market. Only the pentaband phones like the N8 thus far were compatible with both. N900 worked on TM but not ATT, for example, and most other Nokias worked only on ATT. So for a triband 3G phone, this was a good move.
    But, and a very big but (pardon the pun), excluding the 2100 3G band is bad news for us in Asia and other parts of the world… My guess is that this is targeted for the US market.. perhaps another model with Euro/Asia market in mind?
    In the end though, another edof cam is a deal breaker for me. Even the E72 had autofocus, and as a business phone, why remove the (macro) capability of taking photos of documents?
    My take is that if Nokia has already shown the ability to create pentaband 3G phones, and autofocus cams, why in the world would they make phones without both (given they are the high end phones)? Put the good stuff in the phones.. who cares if the E7 sells more than the N8, or if the E6 takes some sales away from the E7.. People will be buying Nokias!
