Earlier today, Nokia’s Class II Permissive Change notice for its Lumia 800 Windows Phone won approval from the FCC. According to FCC filings, this change notice will bring mobile hotspot functionality to the Lumia 800. As you can see in the note above, wireless hotspot functionality will come via firmware update that will be delivered through the “Zune Service.”
Earlier this month, Nokia announced plans to bring mobile hotspot functionality to Lumia devices. Today’s FCC filing suggests that this functionality will be coming soon, since Nokia’s Class II Permissive Change Notice for the Lumia 800 was approved today.
Well look what just appeared on the FCC, just in time for the holidays! Today, Nokia’s Lumia 800 Windows Phone made its debut on the FCC, with both internal and external photos. We get a good look at the Lumia 800’s sleek exterior, and also see the device torn down, exposing its Qualcomm processor and Hynix SDRAM.

Nokia hasn’t yet announced plans to release its Lumia 800 Windows Phone in the United States, but thanks to cell phone importers and Amazon’s partner program you can now get your hands on the device. Amazon is currently offering the black, 16GB version of the Lumia 800 for $700 from its partner Yapper Wireless. The device supports WCDMA bands 900/1900/2100 and GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900, so you’ll need to use the device on T-Mobile if you want WCDMA coverage. The device will work on AT&T’s EDGE network, however.
The Lumia 800 is Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone device, and dare we say quite stunning indeed. The phone features a 3.7-inch display (800×480), a 1.4GHz single core Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, 8MP rear facing camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, and a 1450mAh battery.
