passed through the FCC. Recently, external photos of the device were made public, revealing a rather large form factor – we estimate the device is about 6 inches long and 4 inches wide.
The M17 has an internal, 2400 mAh rechargeable battery, so technically the device is portable. It also comes with a portable travel charger.
According to test reports, the M17 operates on the 700MHz LTE frequency, which will be used by Verizon. You can also see a SIM card slot on the M17 – a new feature on Verizon devices.
No word on pricing or availability, but Verizon is rolling out its LTE network later this year so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the M17 within the next few months.
