Forgive us for not posting this blog lately, as we've been a little busy with a certain Apple handset. But this is a good week to be back, since a selection of notable handsets passed through the gates of the Federal Communications Commission. Not only did we see the Samsung Epic 4G Galaxy S phone, but also the rumored RIM Blackberry 9300, a couple of Nokia devices, and a new HTC smartphone.

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.
