Sony Style Selling Activated Cellphones

San Diego

Sony Style stores

will for the first time sell activated SonyEricsson
cellphones with the announcement that the stores will offer two handsets
activated on the AT&T network. Sales begin Nov. 19.

The 44 stores previously sold only unlocked SonyEricsson phones
without activation. Other SonyEricsson models available in the stores will
continue to be sold unlocked, a spokesperson said.

The first two handsets offered with AT&T service are the C905
and W518, retailing for $179 and $49.99, respectively, after a mail-in rebate
and two-year AT&T wireless service contract, a spokesperson said. Both
models are also available through AT&T stores at those prices, a Sony
spokesperson told TWICE. Neither will be available as activated phones through
the Sony Style web site.

The Sony Ericsson C905a features an 8.1-megapixel camera with GPS with geo-tagging capabilities. The W518a music
phone features integrated Facebook application. When consumers purchase one of
the phones with a service plan, they’ll get three free accessories, compliments
of Sony Style.
