Odds of an official US release are slim to none, but we still figure this is an FCC approval worth noting. The F500
is the big brother of the Ultra Music F300 and the UpStage
, emphasizing its video capabilities in addition to comprehensive audio support. Unlike the F300, it also features a UMTS radio, but since GSM 850 and UMTS 850 / 1900 are all left out of the equation, we don't care too much this side of the pond. Instead, it seems our best hope here might be for Sprint to have another moment of brilliance and commission a CDMA version.
