Sony-Ericsson K850 Rogers

Canadian cell provider Rogers today said it was the first carrier on the continent to carry the Sony-Ericsson K850, one of the cellphone maker's highest-end camera phones. The candybar design centers around photography with a 5-megapixel camera and a xenon flash bright enough to capture more distant subjects than usually possible with cellphones. It also supports 3G Internet access on Rogers' HSDPA network and grants the phone access to two-way video calls as well as faster downloads and uploads.

Rogers should list the K850 later today and anticipates selling the Sony-Ericsson handset for $200 ($201 US) after factoring in a three-year contract; the provider is also upgrading the reference model's 512MB of bundled memory with the option of a free 8GB Memory Stick Micro card capable of holding roughly 2,000 songs.
