T-Mobile launches Sony Ericsson Equinox

The Sony Ericsson Equinox is a midrange flip phone with a trim design.

The Equinox lands at T-Mobile Sony Ericsson

First it gave you new service plans , and now T-Mobile offers a new cell phone. We first saw a variant of the Sony Ericsson Equinox, aka the T717, at the CTIA show last April. Like its T707 sibling the Equinox has a thin design with a glossy skin, a hidden external display, and a circle design on its front face. Though the T707 comes in several colors--the green hue is the most unique--T-Mobile only has a black version of the Equinox.

The midrange feature set includes a 3.2-megapixel camera, a music player, stereo Bluetooth, an FM radio, a personal organizer, USB mass storage, PC syncing, a voice recorder, and a speakerphone. It also supports T-Mobile's 3G network and Sony Ericsson's gesture control feature, which allows you to control some calling functions and the alarm clock by waving your hand across a sensor.

The quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900) Equinox will be available October 28 for $50 with service.
