Sony Ericsson Vivaz U5a approved by FCC, AT&T 3G bands included

Officially announced last month, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz (aka SE Kurara U5) has passed the FCC’s tests today, as Sony Ericsson U5a.

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.
