Forgive us for missing this blog the last few weeks, but we're back to report on the mobile happenings at the Federal Communications Commission. Outside of the appearance of the Samsung GT-i9020 , aka what could be the Nexus S , it was a tablet week at the FCC's certification labs. We spied the upcoming Sharp Galapagos and the AT&T and international version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab . Meanwhile, a couple of Kyocera handsets, Tracfone's simple Samsung SGH-T340G, and the Android-powered ZTE 003Z Libero, which is destined only for the Japanese market, represented the phone camp.

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 is a selection of filings from the past week on new and upcoming cell phones. Click through to read the full report.
