We here at Engadget tend to spend a lot of way too much time poring over the latest FCC filings, be it on the net or directly on the ol’ Federal Communications Commission’s site. Since we couldn’t possibly (want to) cover all the stuff that goes down there individually, we’ve gathered up an exhaustive listing of every phone and / or tablet getting the stamp of approval over the last week. Enjoy!

FCC wastes no time, approves new iPad and Apple TV

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012
In tried and true fashion, the FCC has given the official stamp of approval to Apple’s new products almost immediately after they were announced. Making it through the government’s watchful eye was the new 1080p Apple TV (A1427) as well as three different versions of the new iPad: the A1403 with Verizon LTE, A1430 with AT&T LTE and the WiFi-only A1416. We’re still busy perusing the docs for juicy details and will add as they come. If you’re feeling just as adventurous, however, you can find links to all four in the source below.

WIREDoo search engine gets running man stamp of approval (video)

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

MC Hammer already proved that you only need one hit record. But can you get by with just one search engine? Not if you believe his pitch to the Web 2.0 Summit this week, which promoted a “deep search” technology called WIREDoo. The rapper-approved tool emphasizes relationships rather than keywords, which yields very different results to Google’s. Type in 90210, for instance, and instead of pages of links about the TV show, the pre-beta WIREDoo brings up stuff about the neighborhood — schools, homes, the crime rate and other supposedly useful information. You’ll find the full presentation after the break, but don’t expect any nostalgic dance moves — Hammer is serious about this, just like he was about those revolutionary tablets.

Stanford schooling unwashed masses with free online Intro to Artificial Intelligence (video)

Friday, August 5th, 2011

If you fancy yourself a Stanford (wo)man, but lack the requisite dollars to actually attend, now’s your chance to collect those collegiate bragging rights. Starting October 10th, you can join Professor Sebastian Thrun and Google’s Director of Research, Peter Norvig, in a free, online version of the school’s Introduction to Artificial Intelligence course. The class covers, “knowledge representation, inference, machine learning, planning and game playing, information retrieval, and computer vision and robotics,” and ambitiously aims to be the largest online AI course ever taught. If you’re feeling the ole red and white, you can register at the source link below, but if you’re looking for the official Stanford stamp of approval, we’re afraid you’re barking up the wrong tree — non-students will receive a certificate of completion from the instructors only. Still interested? Check out the video introduction after the break and hit the source for more details.

HTC Merge gets rubber-stamped by FCC

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

It looks like the recently announced HTC Merge has been given the U.S. government’s stamp of approval. Spotted at the FCC, the HTC handset has been long rumored to hit Verizon Wireless’ lineup. The extended lag time between the device’s discovery and unveiling — along with the deafening silence in between — led many to believe that the handset had either been scrapped or was being retooled with an LTE radio. Now, thanks to the FCC, we know neither of those things are true. The handset will be hitting “multiple North American carriers” in the near future, sans LTE (bummer). The FCC filing does include the device’s user guide, so if you want to know a little bit more about the Merge, hit the read link and have yourself a look.

Gizmodo now cooperating in iPhone 4 prototype investigation

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

iphone-4

The District Attorney’s office of San Mateo County has received approval for a request to withdraw the warrant it used to search and seize property owned by Gizmodo editor, Jason Chen. San Mateo Superior Court Judge, Clifford Cretan, gave the rubber stamp of approval on Friday and all items seized in the raid will be returned to Chen. This development comes hot on the heels of a Wall Street Journal report that Gizmodo is now cooperating in the iPhone prototype investigation. According to the WSJ, Gizmodo and Chen have voluntarily agreed to give investigators access to materials that are deemed to be relevant to their case. San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney, Chris Feasel, also confirmed that Gizmodo and Chen have agreed to cooperate with the ongoing investigation. All that legal wrangling over the controversial iPhone prototype seems to coming to a somewhat amicable end for Gizmodo et. al.

Nokia the first to get approval from China for its online mapping service

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

nokia-logo

Good news for Nokia, as the Finnish company is slated to be the first company to receive approval from China for its online mapping service. Nokia submitted an application for its Ovi Maps when a new Chinese law requiring regulatory approval for all online mapping services went into effect in June 2010. According to a representative from the the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping, Nokia’s application is slated to get the rubber stamp of approval from China’s regulatory body and will be subject to public opinion before receiving final approval. Though twenty-six companies are currently seeking approval, Google and Microsoft have not submitted an application for their respective mapping services. With all the drama surrounding Nokia and its Symbian^3 OS, it is a refreshing change to see the Espoo-based company get some positive press.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz headed to AT&T?

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Sony-Ericsson-Vivaz-ATT-logo

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz with AT&T friendly 3G on board received the FCC rubber stamp of approval back in February. The handset has remained incognito until Thursday when the entire docket of FCC documents was released to the public. These documents include references and images that confirm the handset was indeed slated for AT&T. Given the time lapse since announcement and FCC approval, the future launch of this handset on the nation’s number two carrier is questionable. Until we hear otherwise from Sony Ericsson or AT&T, we will consider the prospect of an AT&T-branded as possible but not probable.

Mobilicity gets the green light from CRTC, looks to launch in Toronto soon

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Right on cue, the artist formerly known as DAVE Wireless has been given approval to begin operations in Canada. Just as we heard earlier in the year, Mobilicity is looking to add some much-needed competition in the mobile operator space up north, and as predicted, the CRTC has given the initial stamp of approval needed for it to move forward with business operations. The company has to make a few minor changes up the ladder in order to appease the Canadian overlords that regulate this stuff, but the outfit’s top brass have stated that they have “no issues” whatsoever in complying. If all goes well, the carrier plans to start up service in Toronto before the summer swings in, with Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa to get covered later in the year. Here’s hoping those blasted three-year contracts vanish for good, eh?

[Thanks, Adam]

Motorola MB810 gets a Wi-Fi certification, might just be the Shadow

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

There’s precisely no way to know for sure, but it looks as if the perpetual mystery surrounding the Motorola Shadow may be nearing its end. Just as the weekend was getting kicked off in earnest, a new Moto handset managed to get its own stamp of approval from the fine folks at the Wi-Fi Alliance, and pictures of something that might be the Shadow appeared on laptopmemo. The MB810 is said to be equipped with both 802.11b/g/n as well as a cellular data connection, though it’s impossible to tell from the paperwork whether it’ll be outed in GSM or CDMA form. The leaked handset at laptopmemo is said to have a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, an eight megapixel camera with HD video capability, and a slider QWERTY keyboard. Are they the same handset, and is any of this real? We should know whether or not this guy has slipped through the cracks under another moniker in due time, but if you’re anything like us, “due time” won’t ever come soon enough.

[Thanks, Mittens]

Adobe’s CTO responds to Apple’s new SDK license for iPhone OS 4.0

Saturday, April 10th, 2010

adobe

In a blog post on Adobe’s conversations blog, CTO Kevin Lynch responded to Apple and its revised SDK license that seemingly prohibits third party compilers. Adobe is on the offensive as this restriction would directly effect Adobe CS5 products like Flash Professional CS5 which will include a Packager for iPhone when it is officially released. With this new SDK license, Flash developers using Adobe’s tools would violate Apple’s terms of service and their applications would not receive Apple’s rubber stamp of approval. Unlike Lee Brimelow who ended his personal response on much more scathing note, Lynch, in his corporate response, stood firm on the iPhone export feature for CS5. He placed the acceptance of these Adobe-generated apps squarely on Apple’s shoulders and, in a bit of a jab, its “shifting” App store rules. Sticking the knife in a little bit further, Lynch noted that Adobe’s authoring platforms are looking beyond Apple and its devices and will continue to work with industry partners to bring content and applications to a wide range of devices. Get out your virtual scorecard folks as this corporate cat fight is starting to heat up.
