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.
