The FCC is usually busy all-year round, but we’re sure they’re even more busy the closer we get to CES as they probably need to go through a ton of devices just before they’re officially announced during the biggest week in consumer electronics. One such device has just been discovered for T-Mobile called “Wombat.”
According to the FCC filing, the ZTE Wombat will support WCDMA in the 1700MHz band, Bluetooth support for GSM/EDGE in 850/1900MHz bands and will be made available on T-Mobile. The ZTE Wombat will be a bar-style phone combined with a QWERTY keyboard, a 2-megapixel camera, a 1,000mAh battery, microSD card slot and will run a non-smartphone operating system, instead being a mobile device intended for the most basic of needs such as phone calls, messaging and some media features.
The ZTE Wombat has yet to be officially announced by either ZTE or T-Mobile, but we’re sure we’ll be hearing more about the device once CES shows its face next week.
