Though we've known since January that Verizon Wireless is getting a Nexus One, this week we saw the first sign that the handset may arrive soon. A CDMA HTC phone with the ID "PB99300" cleared the Federal Communications Commission's certification process this week. As Phonescoop pointed out, the GSM Nexus One's FCC ID is PB99100, which is pretty close to the new device's ID. HTC omitted the retail product name from its FCC documents, but the consensus is that we have our Verizon model in print. Also in FCC land this week is the Nokia C6 and the HTC Legend.

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.
