Earlier this month, we told you that Sony’s new Xperia T smartphone might be released in the US by AT&T. And now the FCC has pretty much confirmed this, by approving the LT30at version of the handset.
Unlike the LT30p (which is bound to hit European markets), the Xperia T LT30at features AT&T-friendly LTE. Moreover, the FCC specifically says that this is manufactured for AT&T.
Of course, we still don’t know exactly when AT&T is going to launch the handset, but the carrier will probably announce availability details soon.
The Xperia T was officially announced at the end of August, alongside other two new Sony handsets: Xperia V, and Xperia J. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradeable to Jelly Bean), and features a 4.7 inch HD display, NFC, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 13MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory. AT&T will probably sell it for $199.99 on contract. But that remains to be seen.
