A little over a week ago the Sony Ericsson W995, affectionately known as the Hikaru, was revealed to have made it’s way through the FCC screening process. We knew the US-bound W995a couldn’t be far behind and sure enough, here she is. As is customary with Sony Ericsson handsets that actually find their way to North America, the “a” model is identical to the standard version but it brings WCDMA 850/1900 MHz to the table as well. Mmm, 3G. Specswise, we’re still looking at an 8.1 megapixel camera, 8GB of internal memory, 2.6-inch QVGA scratch-resistant screen, aGPS, Wi-Fi, stereo speakers, Walkman player 4.0 and dedicated media buttons. Will it get picked up? That remains to be seen but in the meantime, hit the jump for more FCC shots.
