Windows Phone 8-powered Samsung SCH-R860U clears FCC on its way to US Cellular?

Some time ago we’ve told you that US Cellular will join Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 ride and launch such smartphone at some point in the future. Apparently that could happen in the next few days or weeks with Samsung SCH-R860U getting FCC’s seal approval and effectively making the device ready to be sold on the U.S. soil.

But how we know this phone is slated to hit US Cellular’s portfolio? We don’t have that information confirmed, only the hint of Japanese Blog of Mobile. Then again, we tend to believe the mentioned website has no reason to invent stories involving the tier-two carrier in the U.S. and Windows Phone. In any case, we’ll have to wait and see what will happen later this month (or next month).

And if you wonder, the SCH-R860U comes with LTE connectivity support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, while rest of its specs are currently a mystery. We’ll let you know as soon as we have something new to add to this story…
