Another 3G ready T-Mobile handset has cleared the FCC, but this time there's a twist. A Nokia known only as "RM-407" has made it through FCC testing, and the official documents show the presence not only of UMA-capable WiFi but also the WCDMA 1700 Band on the phone. In other words, this Nokia's ready for T-Mob's HotSpot@Home service and the carrier's forthcoming 3G network.
Of course T-Mobile has already launched a 3G phone or two but hasn't yet rolled out the network to support high speed data services. I keep hearing late Spring/early Summer for an initial launch in New York, Miami, and LA, with 22 other cities to follow. Take that as a semi-confirmed rumor: We know T-Mob will be launching 3G this Summer, we just don't know exactly when or who's gonna get it first.
