With nearly 570 million customers, China Mobile is one of the world’s largest telecommunications service providers. And Sony Ericsson wants a piece of that action.
The company passed their A8i smartphone for China Mobile through the FCC today. The device, which sports a similar button layout and form factor as the Sony Ericsson X10, eschews Android for China Mobile’s Open Mobile System 2.0 (OMS 2.0), along with a shiny chrome back. The device, which runs on the TD-SCDMA network, features a 3.5” touch screen and CMMB mobile TV functionality.
