The Vivaz U5a has been approved to work on the UMTS II and V bands – that’s 1900MHz and 850MHz, so AT&T or Rogers can use the handset on their 3G networks.
Vivaz is Sony Ericsson’s second smartphone based on Symbian S60 5th Edition (Symbian^1), after the Satio.
Its features include a 3.2 inch touchscreen display with 360 x 640 pixels, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, accelerometer, Google Maps, Facebook and Twitter integration, 3.5mm headset jack, 720 MHz processor, an 8GB memory card in the box, and an 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and HD (720p) video recording.
If the Sony Ericsson won’t be offered by AT&T, US customers will probably be able to buy it via the Sony Style shop.
