FCC Surprise: CDMA Pantech With Nokia Branding

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.

I would keep an eye on Pantech......

They have the ability to be a major player in the US market. With their acquisition of SKT, they will offer phones on par with LG and Samsung. The Helio phone is a good example of what they can do.

Regarding Verizon phones: They decide what they will offer their customers. The phone vendors have to comply with their requests.

Knock My Socks Off

Damn verizon has the coolest phones. They have the best network so they can't offer cool phones. 🙄
This is a great phone for third world countries. Since the United States is quickly becoming one why can't we have this phone.
Can anyone explain to me why Verizon continues to put out these ridiculous awful phones? There are great CDMA phones all over Asia...why do we get this junk?

CDMA Nokia = Audiovox?

Nokia, what is going on?!

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!
