Sony Ericsson Vivaz U5a passes through the FCC
AT&T customers may have something to look forward to after the Sony Ericsson Vivaz U5a made its way through the FCC. The S60 powered device has been approved to work on the UMTS II and V bands which mean it’ll work on the 3G networks of AT&T and Rogers. This will truly be one of the high end Sony Ericsson devices to hit AT&T’s lineup in a long time and if everything falls through. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is the second smartphone that’s based on Symbian S60 5th Edition – it packs a 3.2” touchscreen with a 360 x 640 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 720 MHz processor, 8GB memory card in the box, 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, 720p HD video recording, and Facebook & Twitter integration. There’s already a lot to like about this handset, let’s hope this can spur some movement on Sony Ericsson devices here in the US. After passing through the halls of the FCC, we'll see if AT&T gets the ball rolling on getting this handset out the doors and into the stores.

Why has there been more news on Vivaz than X10 lately? Media/Timescape still slow/buggy as hell Sony? Shouldn've gone with a straight Google Experience device and run Android 2.1.

AT&T isn't pickup this up. They're too busy with Android and the iPhone to be worried about providing consumers will another choice.
