Low-cost Sony phones
In addition to its Walkman and Cyber-shot phones, Sony-Ericsson is also premiering four less expensive candybar models. The K200 and the K220 are each equipped with a VGA camera, which can be used for picture messaging, but in each case is limited to 40 shots in 2MB of internal memory. The two phones are also dual-band GSM units that can only browse the web at GPRS speeds. The K220 does benefit from an FM radio however, which supports up to 10 presets. It will ship in blue or white, whereas the K200 will come in black or gold.
The J110 and the J120 omit the camera, but are otherwise similar, including the FM radio tuner on the higher-end J120. The one notable difference is the use of larger buttons, which should make the phones somewhat easier to use. The J120 will only come in black, but the J110 will be available in gray, purple or cream colors. All four phones will ship in the second quarter of 2007. Click below to see a photo gallery.
