Moto RAZRmaxx at FCC

Motorola's upcoming RAZRmaxx is headed to the US as a GSM device, according to a recently discovered FCC approval. While initially unveiled as a tri-band GSM phone that would have limited its presence to Europe and some parts of Asia, the RAZRmaxx has recently been certified in the US for use with the fourth, 850MHz band critical to its use by cell service providers in the country.

Notably, however, the phone is currently approved for 3G wireless broadband only on a single frequency for HSDPA, suggesting a likely appearance with the predominant GSM carrier AT&T. Other features remain the same from the 2-megapixel, Bluetooth 2.0-equipped version available in Europe. The discovery indicates an upcoming competition between AT&T and Verizon, the latter of which is already planning a CDMA version of the phone for as soon as next month. [via Phone Arena]
