Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 passes the FCC wearing AT&T colors
The other day we reported that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 had visited the FCC. The joint venture's first Android device had visited the rubber stamping pencil pushers with T-Mobile's 3G frequencies under the hood. We weren't too surprised because in an earlier story, we told you that it appeared as though Sony Ericsson had produced two models of the device, one with T-Mobile spectrum and a variant that covered some of AT&T's 3G bands. This looks to be the case as the handset made another visit to the FCC, this time wearing a radio that uses some of AT&T's 3G spectrum. This could be very good news for those waiting for a subsidized price to go along with 3G capabilities in the U.S. After all, failure to hook-up up with a U.S. based carrier was one of the reasons why the Xperia X1 did miserably in the U.S. where it was sold as an unlocked Windows Mobile device. Powered by Android, the Xperia X10 is supposed to be the joint venture's new Flagship phone and it would be nice if the handset that Sony Ericsson is counting on so much could be competitive in the American market by way of a subsidized offering. Thinking seriously about purchasing the Xperia X10? Check out our Preview.
