With T-Mobile’s 3G network up and running, we’re eager to see T-Mobile bring some serious 1700Mhz 3G-compatible handsets into their stable. Some eagle-eyed detective work by Cellphonesignal has uncovered FCC documents that clue us in to a new T-Mobile 3G handset – the Sony Ericsson Bella.
We’re looking for T-Mobile to pick up the Sony Ericsson Bella as the Sony Ericsson TM506, with support for T-Mobile’s own special flavor of 3G. The Sony Ericsson TM506 Bella should drop with support for dual-band 3G (UMTS/HSDPA) frequencies – specifically, the 1700Mhz and 2100Mhz bands that T-Mobile’s AWS 3G network requires.
And, to make sure this tri-band (850/1800/1900Mhz) GSM clamshell doesn’t disappoint, T-Mobile’s Sony Ericsson TM506 will be packed with a decent feature-set. A quick look at the user-guide shows that the Sony Ericsson TM506 will sport aGPS, a web-feeds reader (RSS, podcasts, news), and a 2 megapixel camera.
Bring on the 1700Mhz 3G goodness, T-Mobile!
