n80_fccYesterday the FCC approved two new Nokia phones for the U.S. market, the 6282 and the N80. The phones appear as originally specced, with both handsets including GSM 850/1900 and WCDMA 1900, but not WCDMA 850. This may make the N80 the first Quad-band, WCDMA 1900 phone Nokia has developed specifically for the U.S. market.

The Cingular logo is prominently displayed on both phones in the FCC photos, yet PhoneScoop is reporting that both phones have been sent “back to Nokia asking for revised versions that support GSM and WCDMA 850/1900”.
