Coming just about the official announcement, which is expected to be on June 17, the Sony Ericsson Shiho has been outed. The Shiho, which is officially named the C905 is a slider style handset that is expected to sport an 8.1-megapixel camera. The camera, aside from the high megapixel will also offer auto focus, xenon flash, face recognition, image stabilization, BestPic, red-eye reduction and Smart Contrast. In addition the camera has support for both audio or video and even includes a video stabilizer feature.
Now aside from the camera, which sounds like it will make this handset worth the purchase by itself, but there are some other very worthwhile features as well. The C905 is also going to feature a 2.4-inch QVGA display, Wi-Fi, built-in GPS, accelerometer, TV-out, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.1, Exchange ActiveSync as well as support for UMTS and HSDPA.
The C905 us expected to be available in Q4 2008 and will be available in copper gold, ice silver or night black. It will also come with an included 2GB memory stick, which with those large megapixel images could prove to be useful. No word yet on any expected pricing.
