Mobile World Congress 2015: Sony Ericsson Vivaz

1:28 /

At Mobile World Congress 2010, Kent German takes a First Look at the Sony Ericsson Vivaz.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Hi, I'm Kent German, Senior Editor for CNET.com. I'm here at Mobile World Congress 2010. I want to show you the Sony Ericsson Vivaz. And one thing that Sony Ericsson's doing now, and especially with this phone, is it's all about making a phone fit in your hand. And they have a curved back, a lot of these now. Also they have -- do have a reflective on the outside, so it kind of catches the light, makes some things look darker, some things look lighter depending on where the light is. So there's a big camera lens right here. It does sort of look like a normal camera from behind. You have some controls up at the top. This is a Symbian series 65th edition phone, so haven't seen one of those for a while but always nice to see. See some number of icons up at the top, shortcuts that take you to twitter, different functions. The main menu also has a number of panels that you can go back and forth. You can add different icons to, customize, and the cool thing about this phone; it actually has flash. So you can go in and actually create your own panels with any sort of animation or whatever you might want. The phone is really geared toward multimedia. You'll see that it has a media player. It has the camera. It does video, has Bluetooth. 8.1-megapixel camera that does video recording, USB mass storage, PC synching. It's also great that Sony Ericsson went and added their own 3.5-millimeter headset jack, so you don't have to use that proprietary connection. It is a touchscreen only device, so it has a full QWERTY keyboard. It is virtual. You can do a multi-tap if you want, and it also handwriting recognition. It should be out in the first quarter of this year. I'm Kent German, and this is Sony Ericsson Vivaz. ^M00:01:24 [ Music ]
