FCC approval doesn't necessarily mean we'll see the device coming to these American shores, but let's hope that it does, because this M700 looks to be the first high-end PPC phone to knock HTC off its high horse (not that I have anything against HTC). Thank god I switched to GSM, though I do miss 3G sorely, built-in WiFi and a SiRF III chipset would definitely help blunt that pain.

To recap, you get a plethora of features including Windows Mobile 5.0 (AKU 3.2), quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11b/g WiFi and that awesome SiRFStar III GPS chipset. You can even avoid that bumper-to-bumper mess thanks to the Traffic Message Channel (TMC). Other goodies include a 2.0 megapixel camera, push email, FM radio, and a Samsung SC3 2442 (400MHz) processor. Too bad there isn't any 3G.
