Sony Ericsson 3G handset for T-Mobile gets FCC nod

updated 04:35 pm EDT, Thu June 19, 2008

Sony Ericsson TM506 phone

Sony Ericsson's newest phone, codenamed TM506, was revealed today on the FCC website. The first Sony Ericsson phone to be released on T-Mobile's 3G network, it will use the carrier's 1,700MHz band. The dual-screen clamshell appears nearly identical to Sony Ericsson's Z780a, and should share some if not all of its features, including assisted GPS, integrated email clients and a web browser, along with Bluetooth support.

The displays are also the same as the Z780a's, with a 320x240 (QVGA) resolution internal screen and monochrome external LCD. A 2.0-megapixel camera with video functionality is integrated into the new handset, which also sports generous multimedia support. Videos in 3GPP (H.263, H.264), MP4, RealVideo 8 and WMV formats can be played back, while audio support includes all advanced AAC, MP3, M4A, WAV and RealAudio 8 files, all stored on a Memory Stick Micro card. The handset, which may get a name change when it arrives to better fit into Sony Ericsson's current line-up, also promises to include a voice recording function.

No official release dates or prices are known, but the TM 506 is expected sometime this year following FCC approval.
