Sony Ericsson C902

 Sony Ericsson C902 Discontinued
12th February 2008

There seems to have been an outbreak of sanity at Sony Ericsson. The new Sony Ericsson C902 not only ditches the horrible keypad of the K850, but it also does away with the K-Series branding for Cyber-shot branded phones. So, Cyber-shot handsets no longer have to put up with the K for the Swedish word Kamera, and have the C for Cyber-shot instead. After all, jag pratar inte svenska and probably neither do most of Sony Ericsson's other customers.

So, what we have here is a smart and sensible looking 3G phone with HSDPA support, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash and a QVGA resolution display.

The camera is the main selling feature of the Sony Ericsson C902, and it seems to be essentially the same camera found in the K850. Featuring the same multishot capabilities of other recent Cyber-shot phones, the C902 also comes with face detection, red-eye reduction and image stabilisation. Sony Ericsson haven't stated the video capture resolution of the C902, but the old K850 was a little disappointing in this regard.. although it does have a built-in image stabiliser.

 SE C902 back When not in use, the camera and flash are hidden behind a protective panel, a nice feature that other handsets would do well to emulate. Another notable feature are the touch-sensitive image control keys that activate around the main screen when the camera is in use, emphasising that this is a phone worthy of the Cyber-shot name.

As you might expect, the Sony Ericsson C902 has a built-in MP3 player, and it also has an FM radio. The usual Sony Ericsson applications are built in - a web browser, email client, RSS reader and a bunch of personal information management functions.

 Sony Ericsson C902 in use This is a very elegant looking handset, measuring 108 x 49 x 11mm and weighing 107 grams. The Sony Ericsson C902 has quad-band GSM support plus UMTS 2100, comes with stereo Bluetooth and has 160MB of internal memory, expandable with Memory Stick Micro cards (256MB is included in the standard sales package).

There's no built in GPS, unlike recent offerings from Nokia and Samsung, and even the Sony Ericsson C702. This means that photographs cannot be geotagged with the location that they were taken. This feature is all the rage at the moment, so presumably Sony Ericsson have a future 5 megapixel device with GPS in development.

Sony Ericsson say that the C902 will be available during the second quarter of 2008 in "Luscious Red" and "Swift Black" colour combinations, although no pricing details are available.
