It was a busy week of new reviews , so it was only today that we had time to peruse the Federal Communications Commission's database of new phones. The list was long, but we pulled together the highlights below. Sony Ericsson and RIM had a lot to offer, with two handsets each. We saw the Xperia Ray , which Sony Ericsson announced last month, and a BlackBerry Torch 2. LG also came through with the MS910 Bryce for MetroPCS, and Huawei offered the Sonic for T-Mobile, which shows that the company is making further inroads to a major U.S. carrier.

Because the FCC has to certify every phone sold in the United States, not to mention test its SAR rating, the agency's online database offers a lot of sneak peeks to those who dig. And to save you the trouble, CNET has combed through the database for you. Here are a selection of filings from the past week on new and upcoming cell phones. Click through to read the full report.
