What is this Nokia with CDMA?

Chris Ziegler

We don't typically post FCC filings we can't identify or link to a product we're expecting, but this odd Nokia filing caught our eye. It's got a CDMA radio with EV-DO and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, which means it's likely headed to Verizon considering how chummy those two have gotten over the past couple years -- nothing unusual there. What is odd, though, is the outline of the device. Nokia's FCC filings that are still under confidentiality typically show an ID label with a correct outline of the phone, and if this particular outline is correct, we've got a doozy on our hands. The model code of RM-687 is consistent with Espoo's handsets, so we guess this is something that would be sold to consumers -- but what is it? It almost looks like a walkie talkie, but is it an ultra-rugged model designed to give the G'zOne series a run for its money, or are we just looking at some internal portion of the phone like a circuitboard or battery cover?
