FCC clear BlackBerry 9800 ahead of today’s reveal

In just under two hours time we're expecting RIM to announce their new BlackBerry 9800 slider alongside BlackBerry OS 6 in New York - our own Vincent Nguyen will be bringing us all the news from the event - but there's the thorny issue of FCC approval to be navigated before the smartphone can go on sale.  Engadget spotted a "BlackBerry smartphone model RCY71UW" clearing the FCC earlier, and after some mild Photoshoppery discovered that the wireframe matches up with leaked 9800 prototypes.

That gives us a list of wireless specs to go from, including Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n, GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/1900 and UMTS II (1900) and V (850), together with GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800 MHz bands and UMTS I (2100) bands for international users.

In fact, he did such a good job, that he actually managed to drag just about every phone manufacturer on the planet into the ring with him, and explain that it's not just an iPhone, or an Apple problem, but an industry-wide situation that someone (like an engineer at Apple, for instance) needs to figure out, pronto. Of course, those manufacturers didn't take this lightly, and we've heard from just about everyone that was called out by name by now. One of them, Research In Motion, was quick to say that they don't suffer the same issues. But, apparently they spoke too soon.

Windows Phone 8.1 Review (Developer Preview)

Windows Phone 8.1 Review (Developer Preview)

Windows Phone 8.1 is no point update. In fact, if it wasn’t so keen on keeping in naming step with Windows on the desktop, Microsoft could probably have called its new smartphone OS version something more impressive: what started out as an aim to bring the virtual assistant Cortana and the useful Action Center to the platform blossomed in the process to include a whole flurry of tweaks and additions. Question is, has Windows Phone kept its crisp, clean charms while still gaining abilities? We’ve been in deep with the Windows Phone 8.1 developer preview; read on for our impressions.

US Cellular debuts Samsung Galaxy S Aviator with LTE

US Cellular has revealed its first LTE smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator, promising up to 10x the download speeds as 3G devices and a $99.99 promotional price. Pairing its 4G connectivity with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, the Galaxy S Aviator isn't likely to deliver any hardware surprises seeing as how used to Galaxy S II variants we are, but it's quite an improvement for US Cellular customers all the same.
