One of Sony’s newest Android smartphones, the Xperia Sola, has been approved by the FCC just moments ago. The unit approved comes with AT&T-specific 3G (850 and 1900 MHz), so it could be released by the carrier in the US. It could also be introduced in Canada by all three major mobile operators (Rogers, Bell, Telus). Of course, it remains to be seen if any of these companies is actually interested to offer the handset.
Officially announced less than a month ago, the Xperia Sola is a unique smartphone, thanks to the fact that it features Sony’s “floating touch technology”, which allows users to browse the web just by hovering fingers above the display.
Floating technology aside, the Sony Xperia Sola comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Android 4.0 ICS), a 3.7 inch Reality Display with 854 x 480 pixels, NFC, Wi-Fi, GPS, xLOUD and 3D surround sound, 512MB of RAM, dual-core 1GHz ST-Ericsson U8500 processor, 8GB of internal memory, and a 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording.
