Sony Ericsson's offering a limited-edition of its C902 Cyber-shot Titanium silver phone--as used by 007 in the upcoming film Quantum of Solace--that includes a memory card packed with Bond, James Bond, content.

The phone comes preloaded with an exclusive spy-style game, and also with the full color trailer of the film, behind-the-scenes interviews with the stars, and exclusive content such as wallpapers and screensavers.

The agent uses the C902 Cyber-shot throughout the 22nd James Bond adventure as he tries to stop an environmentalist from commandeering a country's water supply. The film comes out in November.

The device sports a 5-megapixel camera, a slide-out lens cover, illuminated touch icons, face detection, photo flash, and auto focus.

The phone also offers BestPic, which allows consumers to take nine pictures of a moving object simultaneously and choose the best shot to use, plus picture blogging for uploading photos to blogs and PictBridge for printing directly to a printer, without the need for a PC or laptop. In other words, you'll have several ways to send shots back to the MI6--or your grandma.

The limited-edition phone does not, as far as we know, contain a hidden tape recorder, a flare gun, or a decoding device used to decipher encrypted Russian messages.

This isn't the first time Sony Ericsson has offered a gimmicky phone in conjunction with a Bond release. In 2006, it promoted limited-edition silver versions of the K800 and K790 Cyber-shot camera phones, which were used by 007 in Sony Pictures' Casino Royale.
