Sony Ericsson Aino passes the FCC with AT&T 3G bands
The official presentation of Xperia X2 may be the big Sony Ericsson news of the day, but that doesn’t mean we have to neglect other SE phones.
For example, the already-announced Sony Ericsson Aino has just been approved by the FCC to work on the GSM 850/1900 and WCDMA 850/1900 bands. Needless to say, these are the bands that AT&T uses for its wireless services, so the second largest US carrier might want to release the Aino sometime in the future.
Also known as U10, U10i and U10a, Sony Ericsson Aino is a multimedia featurephone that comes with a 3 inch, 240 x 432 pixels touchscreen display, alphanumeric keypad, Wi-Fi, GPS, and an 8MP autofocus camera.
In case AT&T won’t release the Aino, US customers will probably be able to buy the phone unlocked, via the Sony Style shop.
