The mighty approver of gadgets, the FCC, likes engaging documentation about as much as we like digging through it for clues. Thankfully, a heap from Sony published today provided a very clear indicator as to what's been green lit for US consumption: the model number SGP521, better known as the new

Sony's second-generation SmartWatch may not have impressed the critics, but those lukewarm feelings haven't deterred the company from making another wearable. The FCC has revealed that Sony is testing a \"BT Wrist Notifier\" with the model number SWR10, which sounds like a step beyond the SW2 code u

In the past, Sony hasn't been too strict about issuing confidentiality requests when slipping its Xperia smartphones into the FCC's database. The Honami, however, is no typical Xperia. For those unaware, manufacturers generally submit equipment to the FCC for testing shortly before the product is

Sony's PS4 dev kit passed by the FCC roughly a week ago, and now its consumer-oriented counterpart has passed through Uncle Sam's offices. Not only do the federal documents show the consoles' polished exterior, but they once again note a \"max clock frequency\" of 2.75GHz, teasing just what kind of

Last summer, Sony's PRS-T2 e-reader was leaked when it visited the FCC, and was available for pre-order a week ahead of its official launch. Therefore, it's with a sense of deja-vu that we tell you that Sony's annual update, the PRS-T3, has now passed through the FCC's hallowed halls and been deem

Sony's new mondo handset, the Xperia Z Ultra, was just revealed to the world today, and so it should come as no surprise that the new phone has just received Uncle Sam's seal of approval. That's right, folks, a version of the 6.4 inch device sporting 1,700MHz HSPA and GSM 850/1900MHz radios has pa

When a \"personal computer\" from Sony lands at the FCC, with very little else to identify it, we have to put the pieces together ourselves. With the model number SVD132A14L, we can divine that it's very likely a Sony VAIO Duo and a 13-incher at that. Radio-wise, it shows dual-band WiFi in a/b/g/n f

While Sony intrigued us with the Xperia L's blend of a low-end smartphone with a higher-end camera, it wasn't very specific on just where we could eventually buy one: \"worldwide\" doesn't help, folks. Courtesy of an FCC filing, there's now a hint that the phone might show up in North America. The L

The FCC's approval process can be incredibly secretive, since most companies prefer not to leak out any information that could give away the identity of their star products. Sony, on the other hand, is typically the most liberal when it comes to letting us in on the scoop, and its latest device is

Sure, we've seen Sony dissect the Xperia Tablet Z to show its inner workings, but that doesn't get the slate any closer to its spring launch. An FCC approval will, however. The tablet has swung through the US agency in its regular WiFi form, with photos and a user manual removing any doubts as to

Hirai and Co.'s Xperia ZL is already slated to hit Canada in April, and a surprise FCC visit means that it could arrive in the US soon. Uncle Sam got its mitts on hardware that supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5 and 17, along with HSPA over 1900, 1700 and 850MHz frequencies -- a perfect match for AT&T

While it's being wheeled through the FCC's underground Washington bunker, it's merely known as patient PY7PM-0280. It's only once it's been through the ordeal of being torn to pieces and put back together again that we can call it the Sony Xperia Z. Given that the documents are now available, it's
