Motorola A910 FCC Approved

Motorola today received FCC approval for its A910 clamshell phone, according to the newly published filing. While previously available elsewhere in the world, the A910's approval paves the way for an American release with GSM-based cellular providers.

Added significance stems from the phone's distinct feature set. As with the recently unveiled Nokia 6086, Motorola's device sports a WiFi transmitter that supports Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) for bridging cellular and VoIP calls, making it a prime candidate for T-Mobile's HotSpot@Home service. The A910 is also rare amongst Motorola handsets in abandoning the company's self-made OS in favor of a hybrid of Linux and Java. No release details have been leaked about the 1.3-megapixel camera phone in the filing, though an early 2007 launch to coincide with T-Mobile's full-scale UMA deployment is likely.
