Nokia’s High-End Lumia Device Gets U.S. Regulatory Clearance

Nokia’s first announced Windows Phone for the U.S. is the entry-level Lumia 710, which is due to go on sale next month from T-Mobile USA.

However, it appears the higher-end Lumia 800 could also be headed to the U.S. market soon. The Finnish cellphone maker on Wednesday received regulatory clearance from the Federal Communications Commission to start selling that device.

The Lumia 710 also made an appearance in the FCC database in the days before its formal announcement by T-Mobile. In that case, Nokia and T-Mobile were kind enough to include a user manual that indicated which carrier was getting the device.

Although Nokia’s filing includes a manual, this time the company wasn’t so generous with its photos, which didn’t indicate which carrier was getting the phone.
