Sony Ericsson P5i - rumour or true smartphone?

The long-rumoured Sony Ericsson smartphone might be here sooner than expected. After a photoshop image trying to sketch the phone, now we can see something maybe more real, or maybe it's another photoshopped image.

Sony Ericsson Z770, not so low end

The Z770 surely has looks of a low end phone, but it's features are impressive for a phone of its category. It's tradition for every major mobile phone manufacturer to cater to the low end market, and Sony Ericsson played their part well.

Boasting a 2.2" display with QVGA resolution, and a 2 megapixel camera, the phone is obviously not imaging orientated.

The best part about it is that it doesn't say away from the trend, it has HSDPA, but if you really want to enjoy download speeds up to 3.6mbps, I suggest you get one of those expensive M2 memory cards, because the internal memory is only 32MB.

The phone should be released in Q2, and by then the price should be relatively low.

Default features on Sony Ericsson's Mobile World Congress line-up seem to be TrackID, FM Radio with RDS, Picture editor/blogging software, and Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, and the Z700 is no exception to these.

C902, another high-range non smartphone

Some people will truly appreciate this, and most companies don't notice that users want high-range mobile phones in terms of hardware, and not a very advanced Operating System.

The C902 really fulfills that. It's basically an upgrade of the C702 but it has a better component package, and the looks are wonderful as well.

The display had to be cut to 2 inches as the border serves as camera touch keys, and this imediately tells us that the phone is an imaging dedicated device. There are 8 of these keys.

There is HSDPA, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, but no GPS, which had to be sacrificed for the 5 megapixels sensor.

To activate the camera, you simply slide the back part down, quite a cool concept, not sure how practical it is though.

SE C702, almost a smartphone!

Just because it doesn't have Symbian, Windows Mobile or any other advanced mobile Operating System, the C702 doesn't say behind its brother G700, much in contrary.

Boasting A-GPS, HSDPA, 3.2 megapixel camera, the C702 is a great tool to any average Joe. Not focused to business, nor to multimedia.

It has Netfront browser, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, TrackID, and a blogging software.

It's obvious that the phone isn't multimedia centred as it lacks in any kind of Walkman relation, and it's not a business phone as it would be a smartphone or atleast include WiFi.

Reviewing the Mobile World Congress, let's continue with SE G700

I decided that every device needed it's fame moment, therefore I decided to write a little bit on pretty much every major phone we saw at the Mobile World Congress that ended in Barcelona on Thursday.

Sony Ericsson wasn't scared of showing their touchscreen devices as Nokia, because Nokia is saving it all for S60 Touch UI.

The G700 is a mid-range smartphone, equipped with Symbian UIQ. UIQ was always the preference in Sony Ericssons, although S60 has won the hearts of most of us.

The device features a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, image stabiliser, a LED flash. To display all this, a satisfying 2.4" LCD was included, with QVGA resolution.

The internal memory only counts with 160MB, and there is a port for M2 memory cards, although these can be quite expensive. There is 3G but no HSDPA.

To join the norm, Bluetooth in the phone is v2.0 and has A2DP support. TrackID was also included, and it is no longer an exclusive of the Walkman series.

For the touchscreen usage, there are sticky notes, and handwriting recognition.
According to the specifications, there is a blogging application, which I really want to get my hands on, to see what it is all about.

W980...and no, it's not a Photoshop!

Everytime I saw this phone it looked like a fake, I don't know if you also think so, but to me the picture looks drawn on a computer:



Well we do know that is real, so let's hit the specs.


A great advantage on the music side is the interal FM antenna, no more need to plug headsets just to get hold of radio.


The internal display is still the same old QVGA, we haven't seen many improvements on resolutions, apart on less famous phone, but after all it's only 2.2".

The secondary display, the external one, has an acceptable 176x176 resolution, although I'm not aware of the size of it.


8GB of internal memory is the standard now for any good music phone, and Sony Ericsson didn't forget that, even being a slim fashionable phone, the W980 has the heartbeat of a great phone.


Obviously we can't ask for perfection, so a 3.2 megapixel camera is a decent addition to the package. As usual on Walkman series, TrackID is a must, and on this phone an accelerometer was included making it possible to use the Shake Control.


To finish in style, there is HSDPA at 3.6mbps, but unfortunately no WiFi.


Unfortunately, just like any glossy device, the Sony Ericsson is a fingerprint magnet.

Sony Ericsson G900 with Touch Autofocus

Quite an interesting concept...or reality.

I continously have the problem of my phone focusing on the wrong objects, but with the Sony Ericsson G900, that problem is gone.

From what I read in the press release, the phone is really really touch based. I don't know if Sony Ericsson will focus on the Touch UI, but it surely is making its way ahead of it.

The touch auto focus seems to be my favourite feature, other great features are sticky notes that you write with the stylus and paste them onto the homepage.

The Sony Ericsson G900 has WiFi, a touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera, a 2.4" display with QVGA resolution, and a one touch media experience.

What Sony Ericsson says (both G900 and G700):

What's the Xperia X1 after all?

Picture: Cellular-News

Sony Ericsson's new marvel has said to be built from HTC, atleast that's what Engadget says, although I'm not sure how true that is, but it surely reminds me of the HTC Tytn II.

The HTC Xperia, errm I mean Sony Ericsson Xperia features a huge 3" touchscreen with a massive 480x800 pixels of resolution, which is WVGA (Wide VGA). With this kind of screen you would think that the imaging experience would be great, until you find out it only has 65k colours...I really don't understand how do you expect users to appreciate a 3.2 megapixel camera images with so little colours.

Besides that, there is still HSDPA at 3.6mbps and WiFi, and it operates on Windows Mobile Professional 6.0 (Why not 6.1???), so I presume it's a business orientated phone, although it would be make a great multimedia device.

Beneath the sliding section, there is a hidden QWERTY keyboard, although ever since I touched a Nokia N800, I preferred to type on touchscreens.

To join the league or extraordinary smartphones, the X1 comes with A-GPS and TrackID, which we find in many Walkman series phones.

Sony Ericsson's best phone only for Japan

This is quite sad for us and for Sony Ericsson as well, if they want real competition against phones like N95, K850i isn't the solution, but this W61S could be the right answer!

The N95 8GB does have a wonderful 2.8" display, but the wrong resolution, while the Sony Ericsson counterpart boasts an awesome WVGA 480×800 like the Nokia E90. Besides having a great resolution, it includes a Sony Bravia TV technology called "Reality MAX", again Sony making use of their knowledge on other fields of technology, we did see this previously with their Walkman series, and we hope to see their displays tweaked in this way as well.

Sony Ericsson leads in the Music Industry

With over 145 million Walkman Series phones sold, Sony Ericsson affirmed it maintained leadership in the music phones' industry.

Nokia has their own music series, XpressMusic and Music Edition N-Series but according to Sony Ericsson, they were left behind.

In total, Sony Ericsson sold over 100 million handsets in 2007.

“Sony Ericsson finished a very good year, which highlighted how the company has strategically positioned itself to capture market share with an expanded product portfolio. Investments are being made in both R&D and brand building, to deepen the portfolio and strengthen Sony Ericsson’s presence in new and developing markets around the world. Our target remains to become one of the top three players in the industry, and the momentum we established in 2006 and 2007 makes this a realistic and achievable ambition,” said Dick Komiyama, President of Sony Ericsson.
