Sony-Ericsson W830i K320i
Sony-Ericsson rarely devotes its attention to business users, preferring instead to make music-friendly media phones. As part of its phone announcements today, the cellphone designer made a concession to international businesspeople by introducing a new phone that caters to their needs while still carrying some signature media features for moments outside the office. Owners of the K320i will have access to a number of features rarely seen from Sony-Ericsson. Automatic Bluetooth pairing is a completely new feature from the company: synchronizing a headset for a conference call now happens without any intervention on the user's part. The new phone also supports "push" e-mail from networks that offer it and can read RSS feeds for live news. A VGA camera and AAC/MP3 music playback are also available for less serious moments. The K320i should be available in October for certain markets; a North American version has yet to be announced. Click through for a larger photo.
