US Nokia Lumia 800 hits the FCC

The US version of the Nokia Lumia 800 has just passed the FCC certification today hinting at an imminent released in north America early next year. Don’t get too excited though as this is simply the same handset as the one currently available in Europe and Asia. The “original” version is the RM-801 and this one is the RM-819. The only difference being support for the WCDMA 850Mhz 3G band (AT&T) instead of 900MHz on the RM-801. Your dreams about the Nokia Lumia 900 or the LTE version of the Lumia 800 have yet to become reality..if ever… More to come on January 9th.

    seeing the galaxy nexus lte version became a few mm fatter and needing a bigger battery, this doesn’t surprise me. the lumia body must be completely redisigned for adding lte. not worth the efforts anyway, since most lte phones aren’t that much faster then 3g phones.

    Nokia really dropped the ball with these phones, no front facing camera, bugs, etc.  If I trade up my HTC HD7, which is performing just fine, it would be for the HTC Titan, but I have T-Mobile so that’s not gonna happen.  The Lumina 710 looks like junk, so that’s not an option.  I guess we’ll have to wait for WP8 before we get some decent phones.

    I’m a Nokia fan, but you’re right, the lack of the front facing camera is inexcusable, which may be why I own a Titan.
