Spny Ericsson shows entry-level Cedar handset
Sony Ericsson announced the entry-level Cedar handset on Wednesday. Although a feature phone, it gets top-level social network and e-mail access right from its home screen, such as for Facebook and Twitter. The handset can access HSPA-based 3G networks and is part of SE's GreenHeart range of eco-aware phones, which gives it recycled plastics, a low power charger, waterborne paint and a no-excess box.
Sony Ericsson Faith smartphone spotted
A new smartphone from Sony Ericsson, the Faith, has been spotted recently, revealing it will be part of the company's environmentally-friendly GreenHeart lineup. The device runs on the more touch-friendly Windows Mobile 6.5.3 and has a 2.4-inch touchscreen with 320x240 resolution in addition to the full QWERTY hardware keyboard. Assisted GPS functionality will be built-in, as will a microSD memory card slot.
Sony Ericsson GreenHeart
As expected, Sony Ericsson on Thursday pledged itself to an environmentally friendly track with the launch of its GreenHeart line. The C901 GreenHeart and Naite (both links active soon) are both made of at least 50 percent recycled plastic and have ambient light sensors that dim the display to save power. Apps onboard each also encourage non-car transportation with the C901 comparing walking routes versus driving, while the Naite has a carbon footprint calculator for trips.
