Rumor mill: Sony/Ericsson phone close?

Several independent sources have been talking about new UMA-enabled handsets from Sony/Ericsson. There are rumors that the units are in test at different operators. Unfortunately, this typically means they are likely to be 3 to 6 months away from commercial availability.

Sony/Ericsson is the largest handset manufacturer without a UMA device. We can only assume that the pressure from operators offering dual-mode handset services has 'convinced' S/E to jump into the game.

All we can say is "Welcome, the more the merrier!"
