Last month, the Huawei Sonic smartphone was launched in Turkey. The best thing about this handset was its cost (less than 200€) and the support of near field communication (NFC). We were wondering if the device would come to US. Now, thanks to FCC’s recent filling, we can confidently say YES. The Huawei Sonic will appear on the US market as the T-Mobile Sonic and will be able to hop on AT&T’s 3G network. Also its going to be one of the first handsets that will have advantage of their 42 Mbps HSPA+ network.
As we know, the only smartphone which supported both T-Mobile and AT&T 3G, were made by Nokia. This fact is quit useless, because it’s not available in North America. So we have big expectations about Huawei Sonic.
Also is known that this coming March the AT&T will be given the go ahead to swallow up T-Mobile. So this kind of 3G device would be irreplaceable while AT&T restructures T-Mobile’s current network. AT&T will be using T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network to launch LTE access, and soon the smartphones upgrade will be required for supporting the current high speed network.
