Sony Ericsson is starting, slowly but surely, to warm up to the concept of North American 3G bands with the K850
candybar and Z750
flip both in the mix (no smartphones yet, but we'll take what we can get). Don't believe it? We don't blame you -- despite the official announcements, neither model has launched yet and Sony Ericsson's been neglecting the market here for years -- but we've got an FCC approval here to back it up. This one happens to be for the Z750i, a reasonably attractive handset featuring a 2 megapixel cam, 2.2 inch primary and OLED secondary displays, integrated FM radio, Memory Stick Micro M2 slot, and Exchange ActiveSync support. Here's the kicker, though: Sony Ericsson has actually committed to launching this tri-band HSDPA phone in North America before
the rest of the world, giving us one small victory in the battle to put some quality European hardware in our pockets. No offense, Nokia, we love you guys too.
