Motorola Ischia clears FCC

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

We're doing this list a bit early this week, but we spotted a few worthy phones to report. The new Motorola Ischia now has the official FCC nod along with the LG VX500 and LG AX500. Only the most passionate cell phone geeks know that the Federal Communications Commission holds a treasure trove of information on upcoming handsets.

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.
