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.

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.

Posted by SG on Saturday, July 12, 2008

These are the first pics of the Samsung i8510. It is a 8 Mega Pixel Camera Phone & is Sony Ericsson C905 Rival. Both the phones use the same 8 Mega Pixel sensor manufactured by Samsung. The price of i8510 is supposed to be less than that of the C905. Judging by the keypad, the i8510 seems to be part of the Soul Range.

  • 8 Mega Pixel Camera
  • Xenon Flash

Motorola launches 5 Mega Pixel Phone ZN5

Posted by SG on Monday, June 23, 2008

Motorola has finally launched a 5 Mega Pixel Camera Phone after Nokia, Samsung, LG & Sony Ericsson. The phone is named ZN5 and contains a CMOS sensor developed with the help of Kodak. It’s a candybar and has a morph keypad like the Moto Rokr E8.

It also has Xenon Flash, Auto Focus and a 3.5 mm jack. The icing on the cake is the presence of Wi-fi. The only noteworthy omission is 3G and GPS. It is the first camera phone to have RAW support and also can save image files in TIFF format. Video Recording however is disappointing at QCIF.

The audio quality of ZN5 is excellent and is considered on par of other music phones like Moto Rokr E8 & Samsung i450.

It is a very good camera phone, it’s relatively cheap and the image quality is also good. Now let’s wait when it finally hits stores.

Specs in detail :

  • Quad Band GSM
  • 2.4 inch TFT QVGA Display
  • Touch Sensitive Keypad
  • Wi-fi
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
  • 5 Mega Pixel Kodak CMOS Camera with Auto Focus
  • Xenon Flash
  • Crystel Talk Technology
  • 3.5 mm jack
  • FM Radio

Samsung prepping iPhone competitor, has better specs

Posted by SG on Sunday, May 18, 2008

The iPhone’s design is easily recognizable around the world. There’s no denying Apple’s ability to churn out eye-pleasing creations that have tech-heads drooling for more clean lines and minimalist style. But Samsung is soon going to challenge iPhone with a Windows Mobile based Touch Screen phone.

The Samsung SGH-i900 has style and substance in it. There’s a full-body, 3.5-inch (240×400) touchscreen and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, the Samsung i900 gives Windows Mobile fans a chance to one-up iPhone owners. And, with a feature-set that includes HSDPA, WiFi, FM radio, 5 megapixel camera, TV-out, 16GB of onboard storage, microSDHC card slot, and Bluetooth 2.2 with A2DP – all packed into a 112×56×13mm package, the Samsung i900 easily outpaces the current iPhone’s meager offerings. And, there’s some sort of fingerprint-scanner/touch-sensitive navigation pad at the bottom of the display.
