Nokia 6086 for T-Mobile

Nokia's recently announced 6086 phone is destined for the US, according to an FCC filing (PDF) that has been made public. The certification approves the Nokia handset for the US and signals a likely launch in the near future. An indication of its likely carrier stems from its previously revealed features: as the 6086 is one of the first phones to be equipped with Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA), a technology that switches between cellular networks and WiFi, the phone is likely to see service with T-Mobile USA early next year. The carrier recently launched a trial of its HotSpot@Home service, which takes advantage of UMA to cut roaming charges and to improve reception indoors. T-Mobile has said that it would expand the service in 2007 and would thus coincide with the launch of the Nokia device.
