Nokia Lumia 900 Visits FCC With Its AT&T LTE Bands

In just a few weeks, we’re expecting Nokia to launch the first-ever LTE Windows Phone handset on AT&T’s network with its Lumia 900. Nothing’s set in stone, but we’ve seen March 18 fielded as one potential release date. With the phone’s release creeping on up, Nokia’s getting a few formalities out of the way, like seeing to it that the 900 gets its FCC certification. This afternoon the agency published the 900’s documents, including a manual and an assortment of images.

As a smartphone destined for AT&T’s new LTE network, it’s no surprise that we see the Lumia 900’s documentation attest to LTE operation on the 1700MHz and 700MHz bands, as used by the carrier; of course, there’s also support for AT&T’s 3G frequencies. More interesting is the note that the 900 is capable of HSPA+ on 1700MHz, in theory opening the door for operation on T-Mobile in the States.

With the 900’s rumored release date starting to close-in, we’ll hopefully soon get confirmation on the full launch details, including the potential for a very low on-contract price.
