Sony Ericsson K800Sony Ericsson has now officially leveraged more of the Sony brand by labeling two of their new handsets with the Cyber-shot brand. The K800 (the rumored Wilma phone) and K790 take digital imaging in camera phones to new level. Both have integrated 3.2 Megapixel digital cameras with Autofocus, Xenon flash and BestPic (Sony Ericsson’s unique imaging technology that allows you to capture exactly the moment you desire). The K800 (seen here) is a dual-mode UMTS/GPRS phone and the K790 is a Tri Band EDGE phone. Turn the phones horizontally and you have a digital still camera. Simply slide the active lens cover downwards and a user interface similar to that of a Cyber-shot camera automatically appears.

A completely new feature developed by Sony Ericsson is BestPic, which ensures that you never ‘miss’ an important picture. Press the shutter button once and get 9 full quality 3.2 megapixel pictures to choose from in a time sequence – 4 pictures before and 4 pictures after the actual image you captured. All 9 pictures are displayed as icons on the display. Simply scroll backwards and forwards through the 9 images and save the ones you like best. You can print without a PC thanks to PictBridge (transfers pics with a USB cable, directly to a compatible printer). The phones are among the first to feature fully integrated Picture Blogging.

Full HTML browsing with RSS feeds and Google Search give you high-speed, graphic-rich Internet use. Support for standard push email and a connectivity suite comprising Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0 and Memory Stick Micro (M2). A complete entertainment package including music player, 3D gaming and an RDS FM radio are also provided for business downtime or relaxation. Continue for official spec list.
