Well, it’s about time Sony Ericsson worked out something nice with the carriers again, don’t you think? After quite a long time of having nothing do with any carrier whatsoever, it is revealed that Sony Ericsson will roll out a handset for T-Mobile’s network.
This new handset is the clamshell Sony Ericsson TM506, is pictured here with a plastic green trim. T-Mobile’s logo is printed across under its screen, which pretty much sums it up: SE and T-Mobile have struck a deal with this phone.
The Sony Ericsson TM506 will rock GSM/EDGE, WCDMA, and most importantly, 3G. It also has assisted GPS on board, built-in Bluetooth, expandable memory and a camera with an as-of-yet unspecified megapixel count.
There’s some evidence in the FCC documents that suggest this phone will be TV and video streaming capable, although things may still change by the time this handset is released.
And speaking of release, we still don’t know when it will be yet. But since the FCC has already approved it, expect at least an official announcement from either SE or T-Mobile soon.
