Review: Sony Ericsson TM506
Sony Ericsson and T-Mobile have teamed up for the first time in four years to offer the 3G-equipped TM506. It is capable in many departments, but falls short in others.
For Sony Ericsson lovers who happen to be T-Mobile customers, there's good reason to cheer. The TM506 marks the first SE handset on the T-Mobile network in years, and it supports T-Mobile's 3G network, to boot. The good news is that it is a solid clamshell that offers a decent range of features. But there are a few things holding it back.
Why is it that Sony Ericssion will make a 1700 AWS 3G phone for T-Mobile...and they won't make CDMA?
T-Mobile... and that is a limited user base to sell phones to. Yet... for years they have dogged CDMA technology for years because of it's "limited user base" (compared to GSM)... yet they could be selling phones to Verizon, Sprint, Alltel, Metro, Cricket, Virgin.... who probably cover 80 million people alone. I don't get it.
Ericsson had a big fight with Qualcomm a while back.
There is also a big long story about ...
