FCC Surprise: CDMA Pantech With Nokia Branding
May 2, 2006, 2:04 PM by (staff)
updated The FCC today gave the green light to the Nokia 6215i, an entry-level CDMA clamshell that is a re-branded Pantech PN-315. The draft user manual shows the phone clearly branded with the Nokia logo. Pantech showed this model off with Verizon branding at CES this year. Nokia is also known to be working with SK Teletech on an EV-DO phone because the company does not yet have an EV-DO model of its own. However the Pantech PN-315 is not EV-DO. It is an entry-level model with a VGA camera, speakerphone and few other frills. There is no indication to believe that these specs have changed. Nokia's rebranding of the PN-315 was likely initiated before the Sanyo-Nokia venture was announced. It is possible this phone will not be sold with a Nokia brand or launch at all.

TCL is showing off a concept phone at CES that it calls the NXTPAPER Phone, a phone that implements the paper-like display technology the company has put in some of its recents tablets. Unlike almost all other phones on the market today, the display surface has a matte finish, somewhat like paper, instead of the usual glossy glass.

I would keep an eye on Pantech......
Regarding Verizon phones: They decide what they will offer their customers. The phone vendors have to comply with their requests.
Knock My Socks Off
CDMA Nokia = Audiovox?
You are taking phones that Audiovox traditionally takes!
Does your CDMA ability stink that much that you have to resort to a tier 2 Korean company?
At least see if Pantech has an SK Teletech phone since they are higher end!
