Sony Xperia S makes a visit to the FCC


The Sony Xperia S has made the prerequisite visit to the FCC en route to release and had all sorts of connectivity in two. The handset’s quad-band GMS/EDGE radio was put through its paces on the 850/900/1900/2100 UMTS bands along with HSPA, RFID, Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and GPS. We also can’t forget ANT+ connectivity for fitness tracking devices such as heart rate monitors. You’ll notice the broad swath of radio waves covered includes bands compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile though there are no plans for an official US release at this time. AT&T will get the very similar Xperia Ion. The government committee’s approval nonetheless is an important step towards the release of handset.

  1. 1. I am excited about this phone. It might be my next.

    2. “…AT&T with all sorts of connectivity in two.” Should probably read “…in tow.”

  2. I want it for T-mobile :/ What do you guys mean no plans Sony just said no plans yet, the Ion is for ATT

    1. T-Mobile does need more high end options. They only have 2.

  3. I have my eye on the Ion .

  4. If it had t-mobile bands, wouldn’t we be seeing 1700mhz on the list?? 

    Besides, even if it did, that was probably leftover from when they thought the two would merge. T-Mobile hasn’t carried previous Sony Ericsson smartphones, no reason to expect them to start now. 

  5. does it work for T-mobile 3.5G (4G)?

  6. For Tmo 3g/4g any phone needs 1700 and 2100. 

    1. unless you’re in one of those newfangled 1900mhz hspa(+?) areas.

      They exist, unlocked iPhone users have started getting 3G in some areas.
