Sony Ericsson Z520aLast week, at CommunicAsia in Singapore, Sony Ericsson released several new handsets as reported here on the PowerPage.
One of these, the Z520, is a departure from SE’s handset lineup. It supports all of the major GSM bands in the US and the rest of the world. The bands supported are 850/1900MHz for the US and 900/1800 MHz for the rest of the world, making the Z520a Sony Ericsson’s first Quad-band phone.
Until now, Sony Ericsson has chosen to release two different tri-band flavors of the same phone, one for the US and one for the rest of the world. Compare for example the S700i (international) versus the S710a (U.S. version).
