Hybrid Samsung i770 phone reaches FCC

Samsung i770 at FCC

An unusual new Samsung phone has been approved by the FCC, filings show. The SCH-i770 uses the new Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system, but its main feature is a hybrid receiver, allowing users to switch between GSM and CDMA networks at will. Such receivers are common in countries like Russia, but not in the United States, where large national networks, unique frequencies and a lack of unlocked sales can deter importing. Crucially, the i770 supports the common 850 and 1900MHz bands used by American carriers.

It is not confirmed that the i770 will be sold in the US, but the rarity of similar submissions to the FCC may bolster this view. The FCC filing also shows that the phone should have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi receivers. [via MobileBurn]
