Documents seen on the Federal Communication Commission's web site reveal details about an unannounced handset from ZTE. The ZTE F555, or Wombat, as it is referred to in the draft user manual, supports WCDMA in the 1700MHz band, earmarking it for T-Mobile USA. The FCC also confirms that the Wombat includes Bluetooth and support for GSM/EDGE in the 850/1900MHz bands. Images of the Wombat show it to be a bar-style device with a portrait QWERTY keyboard for messaging. Pictures also reveal that it has a 2-megapixel camera. The draft user manual suggests that the Wombat uses a non-smartphone operating system and includes only the most basic calling, messaging, and media features. The ZTE F555 Wombat has not been announced by ZTE nor T-Mobile USA. Pricing and availability details are not known.
