Still without any official announcements, a recently discovered FCC filing suggests the Huawei Honor 2 may be heading towards a North American release. The filing shows just the basics, such as how the handset will have support for 3G connectivity.
After a long investigation, FCC has found AT&T guilty of duping customers into paying for service that they never asked for in the first place. In light of the decision, AT&T has been asked to pay $700,000 to the federal government. We say it’s a fine, but the statement says it’s a “voluntary payment.”
We have another Nexus 4 situation right here. According to its FCC filing, the Samsung Galaxy Premier won’t be bringing its 4G LTE prowess to the U.S. market. The phone only carries an HSPA 3G radio that will work on AT&T and several Canadian carriers.
There’s a new budget-friendly mid-ranger from Motorola heading to US Cellular. Codenamed “Solstice”, the handheld has just cleared the FCC with model number XT901, being most likely scheduled for a December launch (this year’s winter solstice occurs on December 21).
There isn’t that much buzz surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini after it was officially unveiled, no thanks to the phone’s rather weak specs. But if you have a thing for a Galaxy S3-lookalike in a smaller form factor, you’ll be happy to hear that the Mini has been deemed safe for usage by FCC.
Wouldn’t it be nice to actually have an event in the electronics world be kept fully secret for once? Then again, what fun would that be? We already seem to know a great deal about the Nexus 4 and the rumored release of Android 4.2. Now we even have an FCC filing that gives away the possible existence of a Asus Nexus 7 3G. At this rate, there won’t be too many surprises left for Google’s upcoming October 29th Android event.
Remember the Casio G’zOne Commando, offered last year through Verizon wireless? While that particular smartphone wasn’t the most powerful device around, it was extremely rugged. Now a new FCC filing indicates that the Commando’s successor is making its way over to the United States.
AT&T, America’s second largest wireless operator, owns 30 MHz of spectrum in the so called “WCS band”. Translation: 2.3 GHz. They’ve been wanting to use that spectrum to deploy 4G LTE for a while now, but they’ve faced opposition from Sirius XM, a satellite radio company that uses the same band to run their service.
The Excite line-up of tablets might have not proven as popular as some expected, but it still managed to boost Toshiba’s sales numbers considerably. We don’t have any actual proof to back that claim, but Toshiba is now gearing towards the launch of a follow-up for a member of the Excite family, and that can only mean one thing.
We were pretty surprised to see the rumored LG Nexus get FCC certified before the official LG Optimus G, but now the world harmony has been restored. We have no way to know for sure that the E975 spotted at FCC is the same phone as the G, but all hints seem to point at it being the AT&T version of the “beast”.
