Sony Ericsson C902 - Future phone

Sony Ericsson C902

Sony Ericsson C902

11 February 2008
Written by David Hall

The C902 is another addition to the CyberShot line by Sony Ericsson, with much more of a focus on imaging and style than the C702. A top of the line 5mpx digital camera and standout design are just the beginning for this new flagship model. Other notable features include the HSDPA support, Memory Stick Micro expansion slot, and direct PictBridge printing via USB.

Starting with the by far most exciting feature, the 5mpx digital camera, the C902 is off to a good start. The camera is of the same specification as many entry-level stand alone digital cameras, and if previous mobile CyberShot performance says anything, will take images of the same if not better quality.

The resolution isn’t the only good thing – a plethora of advanced features come as standard: auto-focus, auto-rotate, a flash, digital zoom, face detection, image stabiliser, and BestPic, just to name a few. The C902 is also capable of video recording, and has a dedicated video light for night-time recording.

A 2” TFT LCD makes the perfect viewfinder for the camera, and at 240 x 320 pixels, the resolution is optimum. Up to 262,144 colours can be displayed on the LCD, also great for gaming, watching videos, and simply enjoying the colourful user interface.

Up to 160MB of on-board memory is available for user storage, enough to house a fair few images and video clips. When you’ve filled that to the brim, a Memory Stick Micro expansion card can boost the memory to a new level.

Bluetooth technology with A2DP is capable of streaming stereo audio to compatible devices, conducting wireless phone calls, transferring data, and much more. If wired connectivity is more your thing, USB version 2.0 is offered, with a data-cable in the sales package.

Sony Ericsson’s PC Suite software can also be found in the pack, but with the Mass Storage Device profile, the software doesn’t even need to be installed to transfer files to and from the C902. Its additional functionality, however, is only accessible by installing the software.

Compatible printers can be hooked up to the C902 with the USB cable and photos printed without the need for a computer thanks to technology known as PictBridge. Getting rid of the go-between PC speeds the printing process up significantly and is one less device to configure, which anyone can appreciate!

UMTS/HSDPA 2100MHz 3G networks and GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz 2G networks are fully supported by the C902, resulting a great travelling buddy for keeping in touch with loved ones back home.

Sony Ericsson’s C902 will be available in Swift Black and Luscious Red colour variations when released to the market in Q2 2008. Like the C702, regional variations of the C902 (C902a & C902c) will be released in selected markets with slightly different network capabilities.
