FCC approves Linux-based Nokia 770 Internet Tablet

Sep 1, 2005 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 7 views

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has approved Nokia's Linux-powered 770 Internet Tablet, suggesting the much-anticipated device could become available in the US soon. The 770 provides browsing, email, media players, and other basic Web tablet functions, and can connect via 802.11b or Bluetooth to a cellphone.

Nokia debuted the 770 at the LinuxWorld Expo in New York this May. The device has generated lots of buzz since then.

FCC approval likely means Nokia will begin selling the 770 in the US soon. The device is expected to sell for about $350.

In seeking FCC approval for the device, Nokia submitted a number of documents, including the 770's user manual and a number of internal and external photos. The gallery below consists of photos from Nokia's 770 filing with the FCC. Enjoy . . . !
