Sony Ericsson T250 - Future phone

Sony Ericsson T250

Sony Ericsson T250

15 May 2007
Written by Max Bondorovsky

Itís about time someone made a budget conscious phone that still has the style and the feel of an expensive handset. Introducing the Sony Ericsson T250. The phone has the aura of being T650ís younger brother, with similar styling but is worlds apart in features. I prefer phones that are designed with meaning, that know exactly what their target market is and how to succeed in it and the T250 knows its purpose, itís a budget handset with elegance: simple sophistication.

At a mere 12.6mm thick the T250 comes with a built-in VGA (640*480 resolution) camera. The screen is 1.7Ē with a resolution of 128*160 pixels and it is all displayed on a 65,536 colour TFT screen. The phone is typical candy-bar design with a metal finish, containing a centre navigation key and well designed and spaced numeric keypad.

The Sony Ericsson T250 operates on dual band 900/1800 frequency and will be available in either black or silver. It is more common these days for budget handsets to come with a fairly decent standard sales package and the T250 doesnít disappoint. In addition to the standard battery and charger you also get a stereo handset, which is great for listening to the built in FM radio.

For connectivity the T250 has an infrared port though at the moment it is still unclear if a data cable will be available for it. The phone has a tiny 2mb of shared memory, which must be spaced out between, photos, ring tones, games and anything else that takes up room. On a good note (if that), the T250ís lack of features and its target market, ill be surprised if anyone even reaches the 2mb limit.

Besides the standard features like predictive text, alarm, calendar, vibrating alert, calculator and MMS, it comes with one surprising addition, speakerphone. This is rare on budget level handsets and itís great to see manufacturers packing in only the necessities.

The Sony Ericsson T250 is a phone that looks more than it is. The metal finish gives it a feel that is normally reserved for expensive handsets and for anyone looking for a budget phone, this deserves some serious consideration. With features like built-in radio, speakerphone and VGA camera, it is a budget phone that even your grandma might find advance (and I think thatís good thing).
