New phones from SE
Sony Ericsson has launched a range of new Cyber-shot and Walkman handsets.
The K810i builds on the still hugely popular K800i model, adding a fresh keypad design and a more slim line figure. As well as rounded silver buttons, the keypad boasts four illuminated camera short cut keys on the left hand side. The K810i also has a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus and Xenon flash, BestPic technology which allows the user to take nine successive shots and select the best one, and Photo-fix technology, which allows pictures to be edited on the handset itself.
The K810i will be available in noble blue and golden Ivory in quarter two. Also available in the same quarter will be a lower specced Cyber-shot phone, standing at just 14mm thick and incorporating a 2 megapixel camera.
The big new addition to the Walkman range announced is the W880i. At just 9.4mm thick, it is the slimmest of the Walkman range. It comes equipped with a 1GB memory stick which can hold up to 900 tracks and the latest version of Sony Ericsson’s Walkman Player 2.0, which displays an artist’s album artwork as a track is played. It also has a 2 megapixel camera and is available in steel silver and flame black. The first units will begin shipping later this month.
The manufacturer has also unveiled the W610i, a dual front Walkman handset with storage for up to 470 songs and a 2 megapixel camera. Available in satin black and plush orange, it will be available in quarter two.
The manufacturer made the handset announcements ahead of the 3GSM event next week. UK managing director John Harber said it wanted to bring attention to the new arrivals ‘ahead of the noise’ of the Barcelona event.
