news: Sony Ericsson Unveils Advanced Devices
Sony Ericsson is looking to set the bar high in the smartphone sector with
the unveiling of its latest offering, the P900. The company also has
introduced a new camera phone to its line, the T630.
The P900 multimedia smartphone, an improved successor to the P800, sports a
65K color touch screen, increased memory from 32 MB to 48 MB and video
recording capability, which Sony Ericsson views as one of the most
significant additions to the new model. The Symbian OS v7.0-based P900's
camera users the QCIF picture size with MPEG 4 video compression for video
clip recording.
The high-end P900 is expected to make its debut in Europe and the Asia
Pacific region in the fourth quarter, with availability in China and the
United States to follow in the first quarter of 2004.
The T630 is a tri-band GSM/GPRS camera phone that features a small mirror to
enable users to take self portraits. The device sports a 65K color screen,
supports Java and Mophun platforms, connectivity and a music DJ. The device
will first be sold in China beginning in the fourth quarter, followed by
Europe and the Americas next year.
The camera phone market is heating up, according to ARC Group, which
recently predicted that more than 55 million consumers worldwide will own
camera-phone handsets by the end of 2003, up from 25 million in 2002.
Last week, Sony Ericsson posted a profit for the first time since opening
its doors two years ago. The Ericsson-Sony Corp. joint venture recorded
sales of $1.5 billion, up from $1.0 billion a year ago. Mobile phone
shipments reached 7.1 million during the third quarter, up from 5.0 million
in the comparable 2002 quarter.
Despite the upbeat results and a forecast to be profitable in the second
half of the year, the company warned that it may not be able to sustain the
rate of growth in the fourth quarter due to lower-priced handsets and
increased competition.
