Sony Ericsson’s Wilma / K800 / K790 Cyber-shot phone gets official

28Feb06

Sony Ericssonjust announced their K800 and K790
(pictured) cellphones; their first to be tagged with Cyber-shot branding letting you know there’s some good digicam
lovin’ on the inside. True to the name, these handsets bring a big 3.2 megapixel camera with flash and lens cover,
dedicated shutter button, auto red eye reduction, PictBridge support, image stabilization, and a brand new feature
called BestPic — press the shutter once and get 9 full quality snaps; 4 before and 4 after the actual image you
captured all presented as icons on the display. You select the best image(s) from the bunch to keep. The handsets
differ in network coverage with the K800 going dual-mode UMTS/GPRS while the K790 goes tri-band EDGE with the K790a and
K790i destined for the Americas with support for 850/1800/1900 and 900/1800/1900 MHz respectively. The K800 also
features a second, front mounted camera for video conferencing. No surprises from the specs we already saw, but if
feels good to run ’em down again: 2.0-inch QVGA 262K TFT display, 64MB internal flash memory with Memory Stick Micro M2
expansion slot, Bluetooth 2.0, an RSS reader, video recording and playback, Music Player supporting MP3/AAC, and RDS FM
radio all in a 106 x 47 x 18/20 mm (4.1 x 1.8 x 0.7/0.78 inch) “Velvet Black” package. And although it’s not
in the press release, they look to be sporting UIQ 3. You’ll have to keep lusting a bit longer though, ’cause these
won’t hit globally until Q2.
