Nokia 7230 passes the FCC with US 3G

1:31 AM Edited by Blony

Officially announced less than one month ago, the Nokia 7230 has just been approved by the FCC, which blessed the phone’s use on US 3G bands (850 / 1900 MHz).

This (theoretically) means that AT&T can launch the phone in the US, or, if you’re in Canada, Rogers or Fido may pick it up.

The 7230 is a fancy-looking slider with decent features, including: 2.4 inch QVGA display, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm headset jack, Nokia Maps, stereo FM radio, 3.2MP camera and MicroSD card support. There’s no GPS and neither Wi-Fi, in case you’re wondering.

In Europe, Nokia 7230’s retail price will be of about $150, so if a North American carrier decides to offer it, it will probably do it for free on contract.
