Nokia N77 at FCC

Nokia's N77 phone has been approved by the FCC, a recent filing shows. The successful test is curious due to the phone's use of DVB-H, a digital mobile TV standard generally only used in Europe -- raising the possibility that an Americanized version of the candybar handset may appear in the US in the future. However, the phone as tested by the FCC currently uses the same tri-band GSM and UMTS Internet as the original, ruling out an imediate release.

The N77 would also require the establishment of a new mobile TV network, as the only currently operating cellphone TV network in the US (Verizon's V CAST TV) uses the competing MediaFLO standard. View a sampling of the FCC photos after the break.
