Nokia T7-00 Passes FCC Tests, What Was It Doing There?

The FCC has tested and approved a Nokia device that is a spitting image of the T7-00. What’s this trimmed-down N8 doing at the FCC? We don’t quite know but the documents mention the 1700Mega Hertz (MHz) WCDirect Memory Access (DMA) band, a.k.a. AWS.

The Nokia T7-00 first surfaced in late March, when rumor had it that there will be two versions - TD-SCDirect Memory Access (DMA) unit for China and a GSM/UMTS model for the global market. A few days later photos of the phone leaked and gave us a much clearer picture of what to expect.

The Nokia T7-00 looks almost exactly like the N8 – except that the protruding capturing camera module has been replaced by an 8MP (probably fixed-focus) unit that sits flush against the aluminum unibody. The HDMI port is gone too and the Central Processing Units (CPU) supposedly ran at 700Mega Hertz (MHz) (instead of 680Mega Hertz (MHz) as the N8).

Anyway, the FCC tested the 850/1900Mega Hertz (MHz) Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) bands but the 850/1700/1900 WCDirect Memory Access (DMA) bands were also mentioned in the documents. The label at the bottom of the device says TD-SCDMA/GSM, just like the Chinese model we’ve seen in the spy shots.

We wouldn’t acquire our hopes up for a global version of the Nokia T7-00 for now (let alone a T-Mobile USA version), even the Chinese model that we’ve seen in photos isn't official yet.

But would you even want one considering the Nokia C7 has basically the same specs. And there’s the Nokia C7 Astound for T-Mobile USA too.
