Huawei's U1215 with North American 3G crosses the FCC

Chris Ziegler

With the company's deal with MetroPCS now firmly in place, it seems possible -- probable, even -- that Huawei is going to be looking to make a wider-scale splash in the US and Canadian markets, and this little candybar might be part of that whole plan. The U1215 is hot off the FCC's wires, packing GSM / EDGE and WCDMA service on the 850 and 1900MHz bands. There's nothing terribly special about the phone (read: 1.3 megapixel camera) other than the fact that it comes to us from Huawei, though. It's unbranded, so we don't know what carrier(s) might bless it, but the presence of video calling support makes Rogers a viable first stop.
