Sony Ericsson makes the 3G-ready TM506 official

This one has been hanging out in the rumor mill for a few weeks now, but now Sony Ericsson’s gone and made the official announcement.

Just in time for the 3G rollout, the TM506 flip is Sony Ericsson’s first handset to support T-Mobile’s high-speed offerings on the AWS spectrum (1700/2100). Also packed beneath its shiny shell (offered in Chrome/Amber or Emerald) are a 2 mp camera, aGPS, and Bluetooth 2.0 w/ A2DP support. No word yet how much change this one will set you back, but look for it at all the normal T-mo outlets in early September.
