It’s only been a few hours since we told you about the N96 hitting Best Buy and we’ve already forgotten about it. Why? The US-ized Nokia N85 is finally showing signs of life! We have seen two versions of the N85 pass through the FCC already, one with no 3G support and one with just a hint of US 3G (WCDMA 900/1900/2100). A few days ago a  third version of the N85, clearly destined for use on AT&T’s 3G networks, was approved by the FCC. The documents clarify that the previously approved RM-333 had WCDMA VIII (900MHz) band, which is replaced with WCDMA V (850MHz) band in new RM-334. This N85 version was tested at 850/1900 GSM and 850/1900 WCDMA and is a full 7 band capable phone with 850/900/1800/1900 GSM and 850/1900/2100 WCDMA. With the N96 hitting Best Buy, maybe we will see the N85 make its debut there, too! It might not be billed as the flagship Nseries but the OLED screen, 5 megapixel camera and more reasonable price point make it a heck of a lot more attractive. Hit the jump for the full FCC description of the phone.
