MOTO X and DROID Ultra likely candidates for FCC appearance

This afternoon amid bits of detail surrounding Motorola's upcoming MOTO X device comes a couple of FCC entries ready for Verizon here in the USA. While it's not entirely clear - and certainly not confirmed - what these devices will be named come their official unveiling, it's likely that at least one of them will have the name DROID attached. While initial reports suggest that the Moto X customizable smartphone will be appearing with Verizon with the name DROID Ultra, it's possible that there'll be two new Motorola-made smartphones on Big Red by the time all is said and done.

Google white space broadband plans get boost with FCC approval

Google's plans to squeeze wireless internet access into the "white space" in-between TV channels - and in turn further prise web control from ISP dominance - has received a boost, with its TV bands database system getting the green-light from the FCC. The TV white space (TVWS) database, which lists the existing TV services along with the frequencies they operate on in each area, and as such highlights the spare spectrum where other services could operate, gained FCC approval this week, after having been run in a public trial from March.

Samsung SM-C101 mystery smartphone hits FCC: may be Galaxy Camera reboot

It would appear that the SM-C101 has appeared with Samsung's labels surrounding its simple drawings in the FCC here at the start of the weekend. This machine has recently been seen in places like Bluetooth certification and in codes for benchmarks, but here it becomes all-but-real. With quad-band GSM and the ability to connect with AT&T's HSPA+, it presents a bit of an oddity: that means no 4G LTE.

Google H840 media streamer hits FCC to potentially replace Nexus Q

Google H840 media streamer hits FCC to potentially replace Nexus Q

Google's short-lived Nexus Q has already been left out of the Google Play Music All Access action, but there looks to be a successor in the pipeline, with a new Google media player spotted in FCC testing. The Google H840 (product code H2G2-42, an apparent play on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) WiFi-testing listing has been pared back thanks to a confidentiality request, but the wireless report does confirm that it "functions as a media player" with 2.4GHz WiFi b/g/n connectivity.
