Sony Ericsson C702

 Sony Ericsson C702 Discontinued
12th February 2008

More than just a cut down version of the new C902, the Sony Ericsson C702 is a Cyber-shot branded phone with a 3.2 megapixel camera and inbuilt GPS.

GPS is all the rage at the moment with several manufacturers adding GPS receivers into their handsets. But with the Sony Ericsson C702, GPS is used for geotagging as well as navigation.

In case you're not familiar with geotagging, then it is very simple. Most JPEG images include hidden information, called the metadata or EXIF information. The metadata includes all sorts of details, such as the camera used to take the shot, date and time of the picture, and if there is a GPS receiver in the camera, then it can record the exact location that the camera was in when the picture was taken. This geotagging is available in the Sony Ericsson C702, and it's a nice feature to have.

The Sony Ericsson C702 can also help users navigate using Google Maps for Mobile and Sony Ericsson's Wayfinder application, giving turn-by-turn directions. In addition, the GPS receiver is enhanced to A-GPS (advanced GPS) allowing a much quicker time to fix the handset's location.

 SE C702 back Don't forget that this is a Cyber-shot branded phone, so the digital camera is also very important. In this case, it is a 3.2 megapixel unit with autofocus and flash. It isn't as advanced as some Cyber-shot phones, but it should be pretty good nonetheless.

Other features on the Sony Ericsson C702 are a QVGA (240 x 320 pixel display), 150MB of phone memory expandable using Memory Stick Micro cards, a web browser, email client and RSS reader.

There are a few different variants of the C702 - the C702 itself (without a suffix) is a quad-band GSM phone with UMTS/HSDPA 2100 (3G) support - in previous versions of Sony Ericsson handsets, this would be called the C702i. Then, the C702a and C702c handsets are quad-band GSM only (although they do support EDGE data) aimed at the North American and Chinese markets respectively.

Sony Ericsson say that the C702 should be available during the second quarter of 2008 in Cool Cyan and Speed Black colour combinations.
