The FCC needs to amend the way they publically release information when they approve a device. I like surprise releases, and they are ruining that.

I was about to say just this. The FCC has been doing this forever, it's just as consumers we never had access to it until the waves of techblogs came in the mid-2000's and saturated us with all things mobile.

Deception would be the only way. They know how to bend the system, and somebody at the FCC is letting them.

The FCC is a Federal body, therefore, any regulations they make are Federal Law.

Their approval process for any device is the same, and it is a FCC regulation that all of the devices MUST pass through this process, and be approved. If a device is not approved, or is altered in a way that it would no longer be approved, it is ILLEGAL.

From your statements, you appear not to understand at all how the FCC device authorization system works.

The FCC does not test the devices, independent certification labs do. Then, the certifying documents from the labs are uploaded to the FCC OET database. If anyone were to leak info, it would have to be the labs, but their business is predicated on honoring NDAs.

They request the FCC to release this information usually the day of the announcement, or shortly after. It's not like the phones don't leak online months in advance anyways. The iPhone 5 was leaked almost 9 or so months in advance, the 4 was found in a bar and we all know what happened there.

The release of info is not up to the FCC. It is up to the OEMs and the testing labs.

See my other post because you misunderstand the FCC authorization process.
