Sony-Ericsson W880i at FCC

Sony-Ericsson's upcoming "Ai" phone has been approved by the FCC, according to a recent filing. Officially announced as the W880, the Walkman-branded phone was previously thought to have been limited primarily to Europe given the inclusion of HSDPA mobile broadband and a front-mounted camera for video messages. Passing the US agency's regulatory tests now paves the way for a release in the US likely to be dubbed the W880a due to its use in the Americas.

No specifics were provided about the phone's exact launch schedule for North America beyond the originally announced mid-2007. However, the approval likely cements a concurrent launch alongside other countries and points to Cingular as a probable carrier, as it has already deployed an HSDPA network in the US.
