Nokia N9 MeeGo Phone Hits FCC, To Launch In June?

Ever since Nokia jumped ship from Symbian to Microsoft, the fate of the company's slated MeeGo handsets became dire. MeeGo devs, however, still have hope for the platform and an announcement back in February by CTO Rich Green suggested that a MeeGo-powered Nokia N950 would launch later this year mainly as a development platform.

Today, drawings of a Nokia device named N9 passed through the FCC, drawing speculation that it could be the anticipated MeeGo handset previously announced. From the drawings, it appears the device will be supporting all four GSM bands as well as five 3G bands, meaning that the device should work all around the world.

The N9 could possibly be announced as early as next week. However, the FCC filing indicates that the pictures and specs must remain confidential until June 24th. That time frame places it right after the first MeeGo conference, which will take place May 23-25th in San Francisco.
