Sony-Ericsson Bravia Phone
The Sony-Ericsson partnership has resulted in phones tied to Sony's better-known labels, including CyberShot for camera phones and Walkman for music. Sony added to this symbolic connection with its recently announced SO903i phone for Japan's NTT DoCoMo. Appropriately linked to Sony's Bravia line of LCD TVs, the phone has an extremely large 3-inch, 432x240 internal display and uses the same Reality MAX video processing engine as Bravia flat-panel screens. A 3.2-megapixel camera with image stabilizer and a large external display also underscore the phone's visual focus. It also includes the by now expected music features and has several dedicated music buttons on the outer shell and 1GB of built-in memory to store its media (Memory Stick Pro and miniSD are also supported). NTT DoCoMo doesn't list a price and says only that the phone is "coming soon." Click through for a gallery of the phone in white.
