Back in February, a Sony Ericsson Vivaz with 3G on AT&T’s bands passed through the FCC. Nothing more was known at that point, but in June the FCC released more pictures of it and it was clear that it was going to be sold by America’s second biggest carrier.
While not officially available yet, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz for AT&T has now made an appearance on Sony Ericsson’s site.
There aren’t many details except some promo animations and videos, but the device is clearly identical, spec-wise, to its European cousin. The only difference here is made up of the 3G bands.
An announcement from AT&T seems imminent.
Until that happens, let’s recap the specs of the Vivaz:
- Symbian^1 (S60 5th Edition)
- 720 MHz processor, PowerVR SGX dedicated graphics chip
- 8GB memory card preinstalled
- 3.2″ 360×640 resistive touchscreen
- HSDPA 10.2 Mb/s, HSUPA 2 Mb/s
- WiFi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth, GPS
- 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash
- 720p HD video recording at 24 fps with continuous autofocus
- 3.5 mm audio jack, stereo FM radio
- Dimensions: 107 x 51.7 x 12.5 mm
- Weight: 97 g
Information in the manual that made its way to the FCC suggests that the Vivaz will also come with AT&T-specific services, such as AT&T Navigator, AT&T Maps and AT&T FamilyMap.
A very interesting solution for those that use their phones a lot for taking pictures, although it would probably have to be priced lower than the Samsung Captivate to be able to sell well, despite its superior camera.
It’s also a pretty compact smartphone by today’s standards, so those who appreciate that will be happy with the Vivaz, whenever it will finally be released.
