Nokia C5 wastes no time getting FCC blessing

Chris Ziegler

Just days following its announcement, the FCC saw fit to grant Nokia's low-end C5 all the regulatory approval it needs (well, not all, but some) to start hitting shelves stateside. Whether it'll actually be sold in any official capacity in North America is another story altogether -- but the prospect of a sub-$200 unlocked smartphone from any top-tier manufacturer is a difficult one to ignore; in any event, this isn't the model you'll be seeing in American stores since it's quadband GSM with 900 / 2100MHz 3G only. While you wait for manufacturing to ramp up, there's a 91-page manual included with the filing for you to flip through, so you may as well get started.
