AT&T Sony Ericsson C905a strikes a pose; shipments now hitting retailers

Well it looks like Sony Ericsson’s upcoming C905a is just as anxious to see AT&T-subscribed mobile photogs as they are to see it. In fact, it couldn’t even wait until the 19th for its official release to pop out of its retail packaging and say hi to the camera. One of our ninjas just hit us to show off one of many units currently making their way across the country just waiting to be snatched up this Sunday. A quick recap of the spec highlights:

  • 8.1 megapixel camera with a xenon flash, auto-focus and video capture
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, dual-band HSDPA
  • On-device image editing
  • Scratch-resistant mineral glass display
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • Bluetooth
  • Memory Stick Micro (M2) support up to 16GB

In less exciting news, we’re hearing AT&T has apparently crippled the handset a bit more than most would have liked — namely, it will be lacking Wi-Fi and Exchange support out of the box. For seasoned SE fans this shouldn’t pose much of a roadblock but less experienced users looking to bring the handset back to its fully functional state have some debranding research to do. Hit the jump for more shots of the phone and retail packaging.

Sony Ericsson C905a: coming July 19th to an AT&T store near you

Well boys and girls, call this one confirmed. We scooped it last week and now Sony Ericsson has made AT&T’s C905a official. July 19th is indeed the date you can get your mitts on the 8.1 megapixel beast and as far as pricing goes, you’re looking at 179.99 after rebate on a 2-year contract. A quick recap of the spec highlights:

  • 8.1 megapixel camera with a xenon flash, auto-focus and video capture
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, dual-band HSDPA
  • On-device image editing
  • Scratch-resistant mineral glass display
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • Bluetooth
  • Memory Stick Micro (M2) support up to 16GB

Ok photogs, stop drooling on your keyboards. It’s definitely no “Rachael” but its also a hell of a lot more exciting than the W205/W205a SE (re)announced this morning. Anyone planning to check this puppy out this Sunday? Hit the jump for more shots.

New AT&T rebate sheets in; Moto QA1, Samsung Jack, Sony Ericsson C905a and more

New AT&T rebate sheets in; Moto QA1, Samsung Jack, Sony Ericsson C905a and more

Following this morning’s rebate sheet from Verizon, one of our AT&T ninjas apparently got fired up and snapped a couple of shots of the carrier’s upcoming rebates for May 11th through June 21st. Unfortunately, no real bomb dropping on AT&T’s sheet either but there are a few items of interest. As is always the case, this doesn’t mean all of the handsets listed will be out during the rebate period but it does mean they’ll be dropping soon enough. Above, highlights include the sliding QWERTY-rocking Motorola QA1 Karma and Sony Ericsson’s 8.1 megapixel beast, the C905a. The second shot, pictured after the break, includes the Samsung i637 Jack and of course everyone’s favorite EDGE-only messaging machine, the BlackBerry Curve 8900. Hit the jump for the second image and let us know if there’s anything in particular on the new rebate sheet that catches your eye.
