The Federal Communications Commission has to approve virtually any consumer device with a wireless radio before it goes on sale in the US, so the FCC web site has become a go-to source of information about upcoming products. Sure, many of the details get hidden away behind confidentiality requests, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn anything from FCC listings. Here are a few items that hit the FCC web site recently:

  • HTC Flyer WiFi
    The WiFi-only version of the HTC Flyer Android tablet is expected to go on sale in the US for about $499 next month. This week the tablet made one of the preliminary stops on its way into your hands by visiting the FCC. [Endadget]
  • Gigabyte S1080 Windows 7 tablet
    The Gigabyte S1080 is a 10 inch tablet with an Intel Atom processor and Windows 7 operating system. There’s no word on the US price or launch date yet. [Wireless Goodness]
  • Motorola XOOM AT&T model
    The Motorola XOOM tablet currently comes in two versions: a WiFi only model and a 3G model for use with Verizon’s mobile broadband network. If this FCC listing is anything to go by, an AT&T model should be available soon. [Wireless Goodness}
  • iCade video game cabinet for the Apple iPad
    Sure, playing arcade games on an iPad is fun and all… but wouldn’t it even more fun if you could slap the tablet into a classic arcade game cabinet? Soon you’ll be able to do just that. [Engadget]
  • Toshiba Tablet
    Toshiba hasn’t released an official name for its upcoming Android tablet yet,at least not for the US version. But it’s expected to launch soon, and now Toshiba’s got the FCC listings to prove it. [Wireless Goodness]
