The FCC has just made public the RF test documentation for Nokia’s upcoming RM-609 smartphone, better known to us as the E6. We’ve had precious little information on the phone so far, aside from a few images of different color options and what looks like an updated version of Symbian^3. Today’s paperwork reveals a bit more of what to expect from the E6, including compatibility with an impressive assortment of frequency bands.
Not only will the E6 find voice service pretty much everywhere with its quad-band GSM, but its 3G support is just as impressive. The phone will work on UMTS bands I, II, IV, V, and VII, letting it connect over 3G across the globe, including on both T-Mobile and AT&T in the States. With support for both HSDPA and HSUPA, the phone won’t just connect, but connect at high speed when possible.
All we have right now are some very technical reports, with none of the device pictures we always hope to find. The letters filed along with the testing documents reveal that those are still covered under 90 days of confidentiality before the FCC will release them. Hopefully by that time, Nokia will have released some information of its own about what we can look forward to from the E6.
