Sony Ericsson TM506 hitting T-mobile on Sep. 3rd


A picture is worth a 1000 words. Unless it completely fails to mention HSDPA or aGPS. The Sony Ericsson TM506 will have 1700/2100 MHz UMTS & HSDPA, yet following T-mobile’s current policy of not telling customers about the best features on their phones, T-mobile fails to mention any 3G features on this new Orange and Black beauty (it will come in Green and Black too). No worries, that is why we are here! … [read full article]
