Sony Ericsson launches C903, W395
Sony Ericsson's C903 and W395 play music and take photos. And yes, they make calls too.
The GSMA Mobile World Congress doesn't begin until next week, but Sony Ericsson isn't wasting any time rolling out new models. On Tuesday the company announced two new multimedia phones: the C903 Cyber-shot and the W395 Walkman. Both phones feature slider designs in multiple colors.
As a Cyber-shot phone, the C903 puts digital photography front and center. The 5-megapixel camera offers a wide variety features such as a flash, image stabilization, face and smile detection, a 16x digital zoom, auto-focus, geo-tagging and picture blogging.
You'll also find messaging and e-mail, USB mass storage, a voice recorder, stereo Bluetooth, 3G support, a music player, assisted-GPS, PC syncing, organizer features, a speakerphone, a memory card slot and a wireless Web browser. The design shows a 2.4-inch display and you can choose form three colors: glamour red, techno white and lacquer black.
Both the C903 and the C903a are quadband GSM world phones, but the C903a is compatible with north American 3G networks.
The W395 offers a Walkman player will the full raft of features. Other features include USB mass storage, stereo Bluetooth, a voice recorder, e-mail and messaging, organizer features, PC syncing, a wireless Web browser, a memory card slot, a speakerphone, a 2-megapixel camera, an FM radio, and stereo speakers.
The W395 also has a 2-inch display and comes in two colors: blush titanium and dusky gray. The quadband GSM world phone's data support stops at EDGE.
We imagine that we'll see both handsets next week in Barcelona. We'll swing by Sony Ericsson's booth to give them a hands-on.
