Sony Ericsson K770i - Future phone

Sony Ericsson K770i

Sony Ericsson K770i

15 August 2007
Written by David Hall

The Sony Ericsson K770i was announced in London this morning, and is the latest handset to join the high-end Cyber-shot range. The 3G K770i boasts a 3.2mpx Cyber-shot camera, Memory Stick Micro support, stereo Bluetooth, an FM stereo radio, USB connectivity, and a QVGA resolution LCD display.

The K770i sports a very different colour scheme to other Cyber-shot cameras, known as Truffle Brown. Most other handsets in the Cyber-shot range stick to black, so this could be an indication that things are changing. The handset is made of soft-touch plastic that feels pleasant in hand, and weighs just 95 grams. The K770i is just 14.5mm thin, the thinnest of all Cyber-shot handsets.

The 3.2mpx digital camera comes equipped with an auto-focus lens, photo light, and 3x digital zoom. The active lens cover is built into the back of the handset, and will automatically launch the viewfinder application when opened. Built into the viewfinder application are links to blogging services where photos and videos can be uploaded and shared with friends.

Images, video, and other user data can be stored on the mere 16MB of internal flash memory or on the included 256MB Memory Stick Micro card. Up to 2000 top-quality photos from the K770i can be stored on the bundled memory card. For those who need more space a larger Memory Stick Micro card can be purchased - the port is compatible with cards up to 2GB in size.

Moving data to and from the K770i could not be easier with USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The sales package includes a USB data-cable and software for synchronizing and transferring data – or you can activate the Mass Storage Device profile for easy drag & drop file transfers. The Bluetooth radio is version 2.0 certified and supports stereo profiles such as A2DP. PictBridge is also supported for computer-free photo printing.

The 240 x 320 pixel TFT LCD is the life of the K770i. Supporting up to 262,144 colours, the large 1.9” display will provide amazing quality for viewing images and video. The K770i has a built-in slideshow application for sharing images and video with friends.

Other multimedia features include an FM stereo radio with RDS technology, video and audio player, sound recorder, and 3D Java MIDP 2.0 application support.

Supporting the UMTS 2100MHz network, the K770i is ready for high-speed data transfer over the WCDMA protocol. Sony Ericsson have included a NetFront browser for accessing the web while on the go, as well as an RSS feed reader for syndicated news and other content. The handset has a forward-facing digital camera for video calling capabilities.

The K770i will be available in selected markets, including Australia, in Q4 2007.
