Sony Ericsson TM506 review:

 

The Sony Ericsson TM506 marks a couple of "firsts" for T-Mobile . Not only is it the first Sony Ericsson to land at T-Mobile in several years, but it's the carrier's first 3G cell phone since it launched its 3G network in May. Though it doesn't offer a...

The Sony Ericsson TM506 has a sleek, easy-to-use design with a brilliant display. Its functional feature set includes world 3G support, a camera, a music player, and Assisted GPS.

The Sony Ericsson TM506's external display is small with limited functionality. It supports only three GSM bands and the speakerphone quality is mediocre.

The Sony Ericsson TM506 has a couple of faults, but it's broad 3G support and integrated GPS makes it a welcome addition to T-Mobile's lineup.

Review: Sony Ericsson TM506 for T-Mobile review

 

The Sony Ericsson TM506 is the first cell phone from Sony Ericsson to show up on T-Mobile in a long time. It is also the first HSDPA phone for T-Mobile's new 1700MHz 3G network. Ricky gives it the once over in this review.

I have the green one and I simply LOVE! It. My fiance had one like it that came with the expansion card and it kept cutting off, he was sent a new one and did not want it, so I took it! I love all of the features, however, I could enjoy them more if...

Review: Sony Ericsson TM506

 

Sony Ericsson and T-Mobile have teamed up for the first time in four years to offer the 3G-equipped TM506. It is capable in many departments, but falls short in others.

Sony Ericsson TM506

 

The Sony Ericsson TM506 is a myFaves version 1.5. This means that it supports all of the ever-popular myFaves features and plans. The screen is a 262,144 color TFT and it contains 320 x 240 pixels. The phone has 35 MB of built-in storage and features...

Attractive looking ; Built-in GPS ; Networks include EDGE, GSM 850, 1800, 1900, HSDPA 1700/2100 and UMTS 1700/2100 ; Excellent call quality

Out of reach for some budgets

The Sony Ericsson TM506 is pretty as a picture with its chrome with amber color. Just in case you are green with envy, you might want to choose the bright emerald color instead. Both colors are equally alluring for the TM506
