The Nokia 6555 isn't a particularly high end device, so when you consider that this one's looking ripe to slot in underneath it, that's really saying something about the direction 3G's going in the US -- down to the masses -- and we're pretty sure that's a good thing. The 3555 flip hit the FCC in full detail this week, revealing a phone that looks like a cheaper version of the 6555, which makes sense considering the sheer number of 5's both model numbers share. The test reports indicate the presence of WCDMA 850 and 1900, making the 3555 a perfect fit for AT&T's 3G network, though the manual's unbranded. Could Nokia be planning on pushing this thing carrier-free on the cheap through its online and brick-and-mortar stores? Actually, maybe the better question is: why the heck did they bother putting autofocus in the VGA cam?
