fccA few days ago the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 passed the FCC sporting T-Mobile 3G bands. So when the FCC passed another version of the Xperia X10 today, you had to think something was up. And sure enough, THIS version of the Xperia X10 comes packed with the AT&T’s 850/1900MHz 3G bands!

Don’t get too excited just yet – that doesn’t mean that AT&T will sell the phone subsidized. It could be headed to another carrier who uses the same bands such as Rogers, Bell or TELUS. Or it could be offered by none of these carriers with a contract and instead sold directly by Sony Ericsson for some outrageous price.

Any way you look at it, it seems as though if you have enough dough you’ll be able to use the Xperia X10 on AT&T with 3G at some point in the future. Knowing Sony Ericsson I’m not confident in saying “near” future but I’ve got my fingers crossed.
