Today is Sony Ericsson love day…

Ptm506-picture

Welcome back Sony Ericsson, you were missed! We posted the Sept 3rd release date earlier this month and yes we know this isn’t the most anticipated phone around town these days. However, for those of you in cities lucky enough to have some 3G goodness, this just might fill your needs. Recapping:

  • 2.0 megapixel camera
  • myfaves compatible
  • 1700/2100 mhz 3G band and Tri-band 850/1800/1900 mhz
  • Some other stuff most phones have like a calculator and an address book! Oh and it has text messaging! Picture messaging too!

Pricing will be $79.99 on a new 2 Year Contract after a $50 dollar mail in rebate.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

    No no my friend, as I said in the post “Sept 3rd release date,” which is still the scheduled date for release. Nothing changes, I only brought this up today because official pricing was announced.

    I love my SE K790. I always wondered why TM hasn’t been offering the SE line.

  • dave

  • MobileSurfer

    Hopefully this mobile will have a quicker GUI than previous Sony/Ericssons mobiles.

  • mingkee

    those testing units had tethering problem, and probably will be fixed on commercial release

  • gabecaby

    I saw the specs that were listed and the phone is actually a quad band phone.

  • Terrance

    so umm.. just to make sure. This phone has a full browser to take advantage of that 3G data right???

    So ive played with the phone and have to say its pretty slick. I have never used a sony ericson before and from just looking at there previous phones was not a fan, but am now. Very good UI. Its not cluttered but extensive and its pretty user friendly…in my opinion.

    I would get it but Android is coming and I cannot wait sorry SE. to anyone that doesn’t want a smartphone this is the phone for you.

    I played with this phone yesterday. The screen resolution looks amazing. I’m a little disappointed in the GPS though. I stood outside for almost 7 minutes without it ever loading. It just kept saying loading. Once it got to 96% it just hang. I know if I were on a trip the GPS on the SE will not be handy. My only hope is that it takes a long time the first time loading and after that is smooth sailing.
