LG GW910 Windows Phone 7 Device Clears FCC
Aug 23, 2010, 12:13 PM by Philip Berne
The FCC has lifted some confidentiality on the LG GW910, a smartphone that will apparently run Windows Phone 7. The device uses the buttons required by Microsoft for the Windows Phone 7 chassis spec. The device has been cleared for 3G radio support on AT&T's frequencies, though, inexplicably, the FCC testing does not mention Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. While the posted user manual talks about LG's S-Class user interface, user manuals posted to the FCC site are often exemplars, and do not always correspond to the final, shipping device.
