Nokia Lumia 920, 820 spotted heading through FCC

Lumia 820 920

The Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phones that are heading to AT&T have been given the green light over at FCC and are well on their way to Microsoft's launch party. It's always a quiet buzz when our dear handsets pass through the agency, which provides us with a slight reminder on where Windows Phones are heading and more.

FCC reveals the Lumia 920 supporting both the 700MHz LTE and the AWS-based LTE bands available for AT&T, with the latter also being used by carriers in Canada - think Rogers. The Nokia Lumia 820 on the other hand is limited to AT&T for LTE connectivity, while the Lumia 810 will be deployed exclusively by T-Mobile.

It should work fine on Three... But yeah, thery're not stocking them. Just the HTC 8S, 8X, and Samsung ATIV-S... I assume that's due to the exclusivity deal for EE.

Ah ok cool, not too fussed about LTE to be honest, H works fast enough for me on a phone at the moment, just as long as it still works!

Do you know if AT&T AWS 1700/2100 LTE bands will fully compatible with T-Mobile USA 1700/2100 LTE bands?

In another recent story, Daniel confirmed with Nokia no support for T-Mobile's 1700 frequency, even on the international version of the phones. You will not get high speed data until the T-Mobile network in your area has been upgraded/refarmed.

It supposedly should, tmo has said their network would allow this, whether it turns out to be true remains to be confirmed.

I wonder if the reason why they haven't yet given release dates is due to this FCC approval process.
