FCC involvement, the KU970 doesn't include any bands of particular interest to Americans, rocking only 2100MHz HSDPA (at 3.6Mbps, no less) in addition to triband GSM. Visually, the Shine formula remains the same (why mess with a good thing?), while guts include 2 megapixel primary and VGA secondary cams, a QVGA display, a full half gig of internal storage, and the full suite of media support. Though clearly destined for the European market, there's no word yet on when exactly it'll hit.
