Sony Ericsson has rounded out its the Mobile World Congress line-up with two new Cyber-shot models, the C902 and C702, and the Internet-friendly Z770. First up is the Cyber-shot C902, a 5-megapixel camera phone. Camera-style features include face detection, for identifying faces in the frame and adjusting focus and exposure accordingly, and auto focus. It also packs a flash and accelerometer.
The BestPic feature takes nine photos in quick succession, allowing you to capture action and then select the shots you want to keep. Images can then be displayed in a slideshow with music and transitions. Sony Ericsson claims you'll get 100 full-resolution photos into the 160MB built-in memory, as well as giving you the dubious pleasure of adding more capacity with a Memory Stick Micro (M2).
The Cyber-shot C902 will be available in Q2 2008, which is spring for those of you who don't speak marketing. It comes in swift black or luscious red. Click through the links to meet the C902's fellow newcomers. -Rich Trenholm
