Nokia internet device  (Source: FCC)
Nokia non-phone Internet and GPS device details surface

Nokia has been outed on a new product by the FCC just as Sony was on the new PS3 model today. Much like the details on the new PlayStation 3, everything on the Nokia device is classified as "confidential" and will not appear for public disclosure until the product is officially announced.

The FCC exhibit details no images, other than a line drawing of the outline of the device and the FCC sticker that will be affixed when it ships.

However, even with this vague information, the documents submitted to the FCC shows that the device will have Bluetooth, WLAN and GPS built-in.

The Nokia device passed all of the tests the FCC threw at it so it shouldn’t be too long before it is officially announced and all the specifications are announced as well. Engadget reports that the device has no official name at this time, but will be an Internet tablet only and has a similar size to the current Nokia N800. Nokia has been offering non-phone devices featuring GPS and other functions like the Nokia 770 for a while now.

Was this really a leak? Or was this released by the FCC as required by law? If the FCC is releasing information about products that they aren't supposed to, it could have an interesting side effect in the market.

By law, however, the submitting company can mark certain areas as confidential.

No, I totally agree with you. Leaked, pff. The sensationalist IDIOT who wrote the title, is a complete ass. I hate it when they do that. Like "ooooooooohhoooooo" Top secret leaked crap. BS. PUBLISHED is a world of difference between "leaked" and even now-a-days leaked means "marketing gimmick" 9/10 I bet.

I guess.

Integrating GPS is a good step up from the N800 and 770, and makes the device even more desirable. Also it could mean that prices on the N800 drop to bargain prices.
