New documents seen on the FCC web site provide some information about the Sony Ericsson TM506. The TM506 has at least dual-band GSM/EDGE 850/1900, and likely packs 1800, too. The user manual notes that it also has WCDMA 1700/2100, which would earmark it for T-Mobile USA. Photos included in the FCC documentation also show the phone branded with T-Mobile logos and services. Aside from 3G, it also has Bluetooth, aGPS, a memory card slot and a camera of unknown quality. The draft documents suggest that the TM506 can access TV and streaming videos. This means the TM506 might be one of the first phones for T-Mobile that can access T-Mobile's 3G data services, but that cannot be confirmed by these documents. The last Sony Ericsson phone sold through T-Mobile USA was the T610, released five years ago in July 2003 and discontinued November of 2004.
