MeeGo-based Nokia N9 RM-680 hits the FCC. Launching soon?
Although lately we haven’t heard a thing about the Nokia N9, the MeeGo smartphone still exists, apparently. Otherwise, the FCC wouldn’t have approved it earlier today.
The handset isn’t listed as N9 at the FCC, but as Nokia RM-680. However, that’s exactly the N9’s model number. Moreover, the sketch provided by the FCC (pictured below) does resemble the N9 we’ve seen in leaked photos last year.
From the details let loose by the FCC, we know the N9 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and support for multiple WCDMA bands – including 850MHz, 1700Mhz, and 1900MHz (yes, this means it’s compatible with the networks of AT&T and T-Mobile).
Now, we have no idea when the N9 will be officially introduced. But it could happen soon (despite some previous rumors that implied the device had been cancelled). After all, when announcing the Windows Phone partnership with Microsoft, Nokia did say it “plans to ship a MeeGo-related product later this year.” Well, the world is waiting.
