Sony Xperia sola visits the FCC carrying AT&T's 3G bands
The Sony Xperia sola has just made a visit to the FCC carrying AT&T's 850 MHz and 1900 MHz 3G bands. This means that if it so desired, the carrier could decide to launch the handset in the States. It also could be released in Canada by all three of the country's major mobile operators (Telus, Bell and Rogers). The Sony Xperia sola is known for its "floating touch" technology which allows users to browse the web by hovering their fingers above the screen.

The Sony Xperia sola is equipped with a 3.7 inch TFT display with resolution of 480 x 854. Pixel density is 265 ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz ST-Ericsson NovaThor U8500 processor while 512MB of RAM is on board. 8GB of native storage comes with the device along with a microSD slot that accepts up to 32GB in additional memory. A 5MP camera with LED flash and AF is on the back of the unit, and it captures video at 720p.

After being introduced last month, the Sony Xperia sola is expected to launch globally sometime this quarter, and buyers will have to choose between three colors, black, white or red.

For a low end device, I don't find it underwhelming. Heck it even has a better processor, NFC, Floating Touch, better design, expandable storage and a better OS than the iPhone 4S.

Low end? Don't be ridiculous. This is a strong midrange android, higher level than, say, HTC One V, Nokia Lumia 800, Samsung Galaxy s plus and iphone 4.

Mid-Range performance with Low End price. Xperia U is about 230 Euros, this one will be even cheaper.
