Sony Ericsson K850i & W910i

Mobile
^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi I'm Kent German, I'm Senior Editor here at cnet.com here at the CTIA Fall 2007 show in San Francisco. We're here at the Ericsson booth, it's not actually the Sony Ericsson booth but we want to show you a couple of phones. We've heard about them before; they're the Sony Ericsson K850 and the Sony Ericsson W910i. The W910 is a walkman phone of course, very slim design, does feel a little bit lot, may be it's a slightest bit cheap but otherwise pretty nice design. Of course this phone has shake control and sense beams; so what those are is there are sensors inside the phone that allow you to move it back and forth and do certain things to manipulate certain functions. Right now we have the Walkman music player activated so you can see music play here. If you press the Walkman button on the top, I'd have to say that's not the best position for it, push that, shake the phone back and forth it will actually change tracks; so that's called shake control, just shake it back and forth, it will skip to the next track. So kind of a cool feature, definitely something we don't see in a lot of phones; and definitely something that's not gimmicky. It's actually pretty useful. When you're playing a game you can actually move the phone like this, move it back and forth and then whatever you're playing, it actually corresponds. So if you're playing Marble Madness, tip the phone back and forth and it will actually make the marble move that way. This phone does come with a megapixel camera, it actually has a lens back here, it has also a lens here and you can do video streaming, Bluetooth and all the other great high-end features. I also want to show you the Sony Ericsson K850, this is a cybershot phone, so it is a 5-megapixel camera; definitely good for taking pretty high quality shots. The cybershot series is really good for that. The navigation toggle is actually a plastic ring that goes around the 5 and the 2 key, you maneuver it back and forth. I haven't seen anything like that before, definitely nice because it's raised above the surface of the phone, don't know how it will be in long-term usability so we'll have to see when we get in a review model. Otherwise there's a music player, it has Bluetooth and all the other high-end features you'd expect on the cybershot phone. I'm Kent German, this is Sony Ericsson K850 and the 910i. ^M00:01:45 [ Music ] ^M00:01:49
