FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):
  • How much memory does the K700 have?

Sony Ericsson originally said 32 MB, it has not been pushed up to 41MB after 3rd party software has been installed by Networks.

  • Can you listen to the Radio through the speaker?

Yes, but the headset has to be connected first as this is used as an antenna for the FM Radio. Once the headset is connected, the option for playing through loudspeaker is possible. MP3's can also be played through the loudspeaker - the headset is not required.

  • Does the K700 have a megapixel camera?

No - VGA (0.3 Megapixel). If you want a megapixel cameraphone from Sony Ericsson then wait for the S700 (). Sony Ericsson have added a feature that enables you to take Megapixel resolution photos with the K700 through the interpolation method similar to the one seen on the T630. The result is actually very respectable.

Yes, with Microsoft Outlook. The K700 can even be used as a remote to change slides in Microsoft Powerpoint.
