Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo Spotted at FCC Yet Again; Offers Support for WCDMA Bands

March 29, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

You might remember, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo made an appearance at the FCC gates sometime ago. The device then did not  show any sign of supporting the WCDMA bands in the United States. That, indeed, left us worried that the device may not make  it to the US carriers. It seems like it is time to shed you frown now. For, the Neo has once again made it to FCC – this time the device comes with support for WCDMA bands II and V.

What is more significant here is that the WCDMA bands II and V bands are deployed by AT&T’s 3G service for the US. That indeed makes us assume that AT&T will have the device on offer without much delay.

However, as you know, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo handset is currently available unlocked for about $530. You may want to check out the availability of the device here.  Does that mean you may not have to be keen on getting the device on AT&T.

The earlier version of Neo had touted PY7A3880100 as the FCC ID. This is rather similar to the FCC ID (PY7A3880101) of the device that we spotted a while ago. Perhaps the only real difference between the WCDMA version of the Neo and the earlier GSM version is just the support to the bands we mentioned. That apart, this Neo is the same as what we had seen earlier.

We guess we will wait for AT&T to make a formal announcement now. What do you think?
