Nokia N85 Passes FCC

Nokia's N85 slider phone is being tested for a US audience both with and without native 3G, according to two FCC submissions. While both reveal a device that can accept GSM calls and EDGE data in North America, a second filing shows the device also supporting HSDPA-based 3G Internet access for the country and supports the existence of the N85-3 mentioned in one of Nokia's own profiles.

No specifications have been confirmed beyond the 3G in this filing, though the device is a lower-cost parallel to the N96 and may have the 3.2-megapixel camera of the N78 bar phone.

How soon the N85 will be available in the US or elsewhere is similarly unknown, though the appearance of both devices at the FCC before any official announcement points to Nokia releasing an N85 North America Model much closer to the European version, which with past phones has often come months earlier. The company has in recent years sold its higher-end phones to Americans only as unlocked devices. [via Mobile Burn]
