Sony Ericsson C905 - Future phone

Sony Ericsson C905

Sony Ericsson C905

20 June 2008
Written by David Hall

Sony Ericsson have announced two new phones for their Cyber-Shot line: The C905 and S302. The C905 lifts the bar for camera phones outside of Asia, sporting an 8.1mpx digital camera with auto-focus, BestPic, face detection, Xenon flash, and much more.

The C905 is also Sony Ericsson’s first slider for the Cyber-Shot line and includes all our favourite features – 240 x 320 pixel display, HSDPA support, Exchange e-mail support, 160MB of internal memory and a 2GB Memory Stick Micro memory card in the sales package.

The C905’s digital camera is just that – a digital camera. At 8.1mpx it rivals many stand alone cameras, including those from Sony’s own digital camera range. The camera is equipped with auto-focus and a professional Xenon flash, with red eye reduction. Images captured by the C905 can be printed on up to A3-sized paper!

Other standard features include face detection, 16x digital zoom, BestPic, an image stabiliser for video recording, PhotoFix post-capture editing application, and direct picture and video blogging support. The convenient slider form factor and dedicated camera key means you don’t even have to slide the handset open to be capturing high quality video and images.

“The C905 Cyber-shot™ … [has] been developed to make us all better photographers! That means making it easier to take great shots and never missing that magic moment,” says Sven Totté, Head of Imaging Marketing at Sony Ericsson.

Adding to the C905’s imaging capabilities is the built-in aGPS chipset, which can be used to tag photos with the exact location that they were captured. Many online photo sharing websites utilize this technology as well as application such as Apple’s iPhoto. The aGPS chipset can also be used to provide turn-by-turn navigation so you’ll never be lost on the road again!

Supplied in the sales package is a 2GB Memory Stick Micro card for storage of the high resolution images and video captured by the camera – as well as all your own personal files including music. Sony Ericsson’s Music Player supports common formats such as MP3 and AAC, and even supports ID3 album art.

USB and Bluetooth local connectivity is supported, both version 2.0 of the respective protocols. WiFi connectivity with IEEE 802.11b/g networks is also supported.

Out of the box the C905 can communicate with your Microsoft Exchange e-mail servers, as well as regular SMTP, POP3, and IMAP4 servers. As always SMS and MMS is supported with T9 predictive text dictionaries for local languages.

Several different variants of the C905 will be offered when the handset goes on sale, based on regional network differences. All versions support GSM 850, 900, 1800, and 1900MHz 2G networks, but the C905a supports UMTS 850/900/2100MHz 3G networks and the C905 (no postfix) supports UMTS 2100MHz. The C905c does not support any 3G networks.

The models that support 3G networks also support the HSDPA protocol, up to 3.6Mbit/s.

The C905, C905a, and C905c will be available in selected markets in the fourth quarter of 2008.
