LG Watch Phone clears FCC

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

The story this week is that the wacky LG Watch Phone from CES has cleared the Federal Communications Commission. That's right, the feds have given their approval to one of this year's conversation piece products. Of course, the conversation we have is, "Why would you buy this?" Also in FCC land, the Nokia E55 and E72 passed the test and we discovered an Alcatel phone called the Miss Sixty A. No, we don't get it either.

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.
