Sony Ericsson G705 leaks, no Auto Focus

Posted by SG on Thursday, July 31, 2008

Sony Ericsson G705 has been leaked. It’s Slider phone in the G Series, but is not a smartphone unlike G700 & G900. It has GPS & WiFi but has no auto focus in the Camera. It has 128 MB Memory & has support for M2 cards to expand it further. It will also support geotagging.

It seems like a non-Walkman version of the recently announced W595 and fits in SE’s strategy of making different versions of the same phone to cater to different audiences rather than to make a do-all phone. This is evident by the lack of Auto Focus in the camera of the phone which is completely unacceptable by today’s standard. Even Music Flagships like Nokia N81 & Samsung i450 have Auto Focus cameras in them.

Nokia 5800 leakes again, UI is still unrefined

Posted by SG on Thursday, July 31, 2008

The Nokia 5800 has leaked again, but this time it’s showing it’s UI also. For those who forgot the 5800 is Nokia’s answer to the 3G iPhone. It’s a Touch Screen Based Smartphone running on S60 5th Edition having a 3.2 inch screen with a resolution of 640 x 360. It also has a 3.5 mm jack, Wi-Fi, GPS & a 3.2mp Auto Focus Cam with Carl Zeiss Optics.

The positioning of the phone as an iPhone beater can be seen from it’s branding as a Xpress Music Phone. It might also come with Nokia’s Comes with Music Service, which allows unlimited music downloads for 1 year. The Tube also has a newly developed battery called the BL-5J and it will also support the TV-out which the iPhone currently does not. If Nokia markets & positions this correctly, they might have a best seller in their hands but they need to refine the UI of the phone as it will get easily beaten by the iPhone’s UI.

RIM Blackberry Thunder Leaks Again, Haptics are visible

Posted by SG on Monday, July 14, 2008

The RIM Blackberry Thunder’s pics have leaked again. This shows a the lax security setup at RIM. Well we are not complaining as it enables us to see the Haptics enabled Touch Screen of the Thunder. There are speculations that the the Thunder will be renamed as Storm , looks like RIM seems to be sticking with natural forces on this one.

Talking about the Thunder, it features a large iPhonic Touch Screen complete with Sure Type & QWERTY keypads. The buttons formations give away the Haptics of the Tunder. It’s believed to be a slim device to take on the iPhone in not just features but size & dimensions also.

What’s so great about the True Haptics in the Thunder is the response got after pressing a button is from the area which was actually pressed unlike the Pseudo Haptics in today’s phones where the whole phone vibrates to acknowledge a press. The Thunder will also feature an audible clickety sound to enhance the vibrations.

The 3G less Bold called the ‘Javelin’ was also leaked & it’s confirmed to have GPS, Wi-fi, 3.2 mp cam & 4.6 OS. It will also feature the 480 x 320 screen of the Bold.

Sony Ericsson W902 Patty Leaked

Posted by SG on Saturday, July 12, 2008

A new phone by Sony Ericcson W902 Codenamed Patty has been leaked. It’s a Walkman phone and will be the first Walkman phone from SE to have a 5 Mega Pixel Camera. The remarkable thing is that the phone is quite slim at just around 10 mm. Let’s hope and pray for a 3.5 mm jack on the phone.

In recent times, the Walkman phones have suffered for the lack of 3.5 mm jack. It’s hard to believe that a “Music Phone” doesn’t have a 3.5 mm jack to plug custom headphones. In Contrast, Nokia & Samsung have embraced putting 3.5 mm jacks even in their low-end phones. Also the Music Quality of the Walkman phones in the recent past has left a lot to be desired due to the exclusion of a dedicated DSP for Sound Processing. Nokia & Samsung are again at the forefront here too.

The phone is supposed to be based on the SE C902 and will support a bigger screen than C902. Unfortunately Patty doesn’t seem to have a lens cover for protecting it’s 5 Mega Pixel Camera. The phone is equipped with a LED flash. Here’s hoping for GPS inclusion just like C902.

The back of the phone supports a Carbon Fibre type finish just like the LG Secret. The phone will be the first Walkman Phone after the W610 to finally have Auto Focus in it. Earlier the Auto Focus was solely reserved for the Cybershot Series by Sony Ericcson.

All in all the phone seems to be a decent buy with the inclusion of 5 Mega Pixel Cam in a thin frame. The phone seems to be a worthy enough successor of the W800/W810 and if SE price it right, this can be a potential blockbuster for them. That’s if Nokia, Samsung & LG don’t gatecrash into SE’s party.
