I'm not sure if I missed this news before but I just found it on the FCC's web site. In December last year, Compal's Smartphone 2002 got the final approval by the US American FFC.
According to the documentation, the "QQX-AR11" is a GSM 1900 MHz device (no words given if it is single, dual or even triple band anyhow) and was already presented by Microsoft as the Texas Instruments OMAP reference design device:
For sure, the FCC can not talk about commercial agreements and therefore I don't know which operator might license this Smartphone 2002.
However, I've seen this device before in reality and I truly like it, even if I'm not such a big fan of external antennas. But anyhow, the whole size of the phone is pretty nice and also the keypad seemed to work better then the HTC Canary.
Below you can see two pictures I made on last year's MÃ¶bius event in Germany. At that time the Compal device (left the Sendo Z100, right the Compal) was still an engineering sample.
Cool, a lot of Smartphones working with GSM 1900 got the FFC approval during the past weeks. Hope I will see
the Compal device outside the USA too!
