Nokia, Sony Ericsson go wild at the FCC

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

Sony Ericsson Yari Sony Ericsson

Holy cow, it was a busy week at the Federal Communications Commission! We sifted through 393 entries to find the cell phones and managed to find some notable models. Vertu offers its sure-to-be-pricey Constellation, Sonim promises a new rugged phone with the XP2 (there was a mysterious gap between the XP1 and XP3), Nokia sneaked through the X6 and a return of the 5800 Xpress Music, and Sony Ericsson got approval for its Yari and a new Xperia model.

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.
