We knew that the Sony Ericsson Vivaz would come to AT&T since back June, and now the smartphone has been finally announced by the second-largest US carrier – not long after the Xperia X10 was launched.
Unlike the X10 (which, of course, runs Android) the SE Vivaz is based on Symbian^1 – and OS that’s not exactly popular in the US.
Anyway, what’s nice about AT&T’s Vivaz is that it costs only $79.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement (after a $50 rebate). For that kind of money, you get a smartphone that features a 360 x 640 pixels touchscreen display, HSPA, GPS, Wi-Fi, and an 8.1MP autofocus camera with HD video recording.
AT&T says you’ll be able to buy the Vivaz starting September 5, in two color versions: Galaxy Blue and Venus Ruby (the latter will be available online only for a limited period of time).
I don’t think there will be many users wanting to buy the Vivaz, not with all those new Windows Phone 7 smartphones coming soon, but… we’ll see.
