FCC welcomes Apple iPhone 3G S

Crave gives you the details on recent cell phone filings with the FCC.

Less than a day after it was unveiled at WWDC 2009, the new Apple iPhone 3G S got the Federal Communications Commission's blessing. You now can peruse fascinating technical data about Apple's newest device, including its SAR measurements. If you're not an iPhone fan, there's no reason to despair, as a handful of other new cell phones passed through the FCC as well.

Because the FCC has to certify every phone sold in the United States, not to mention test its SAR rating, the agency's online database offers a lot of sneak peeks to those who dig. And to save you the trouble, Crave has combed through the database for you. Here are a selection of filings from the past week on new and upcoming cell phones. Click through to read the full report.
