Sony Xperia tipo (ST21a) hits the FCC; hints at North American release

The Sony Xperia tipo has passed through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States. Whilst a variety of handsets pass through the FCC, many do not see a release in the US, however the fact that the ST21a version of the Xperia tipo has hit the FCC may hint at a future release in the region. The phone has compatibility with AT&T’s 3G bands, pretty much like all Sony Xperia handsets, so whilst AT&T may not pick this up, it could be distributed through the Sony Store sim-free. We may also see the Xperia tipo be released in Canada too.

The Xperia tipo sits at the entry-level end of the Xperia range with a single-core 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7225A chipset, 512MB RAM, 3.2-inch (320 x 480) display, 2.9GB of internal storage (2.5GB user accessible), microSD memory card support, 3.2MP camera resolution with VGA video recording and a 1500mAh battery. The phone will launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

    Maybe their low range phones should not carry the Xperia brand because it’s devaluing the image…perhaps a new brand could be introduced.

  • Yet it is higher specced than the first Xperias, at least the minis..

    And your logic is?
