When the Sony Ericsson Xperia was announced, the specs originally mentioned rather unusual frequency coverage, for both the more common AT&T and the muchÂ less frequently used T-Mobile 3G. These specs disappeared the the Xperia website for a while, but now appears to have returned with a vengeance.
In the published specs for the US version the specifications now list:
This has led to rife speculation in the usual forums that the Xperia will also launch on the T-Mobile network. While we have no confirmation on this, if the above is true and not an error by SE, it would at the very least mean US users have a real choice as to which GSM network to use, vs being always tied to AT&T.

Edit: As we have seen, even during this post, the specs come and go.Â I emailed SE for confirmation and got this response:
Me:I have a question re the Xperia X1. Does it, as per your website specifications, feature UMTS on the 1700 band or is this incorrect information?
SE: The specs on the site are correct. Thanks.
Thats good enough for me.
