Sony Ericsson G700 and G900

 Sony Ericsson G900 Discontinued / Cancelled
11th February 2008

These two handsets look like ordinary Sony Ericsson phones, but in fact the Sony Ericsson G700 and G900 are two touchscreen Symbian smartphones, designed to bring touchscreen technology into the mainstream.

Both handsets are very similar in terms of specifications. The Sony Ericsson G900 is a 3G device with WiFi, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and a photo light, a 2.4" 320 x 240 pixel touchscreen display, 160MB of internal memory with Memory Stick Micro support, and because it is a Symbian smartphone, then users can add their own applications.

The Sony Ericsson G700 is almost identical, except that it drops WiFi and has a simpler fixed focus 3.2 megapixel camera. Both units are the same size and weight, coming in at 99 grams and 106 x 49 x 13mm in size.

 Sony Ericsson G700 What exactly can you do with the touchscreen on the G700 and G900? Well, Sony Ericsson say that you can select menu items, scribble notes, and surf the web. The G700 and G900 also have handwriting recognition. In other words, these are two fully features smartphones, like the Sony Ericsson P1i.. just in a more everyday package.

Both the G700 and G900 have an FM radio, multimedia player, stereo Bluetooth, the Opera web browser, document editors and an email client. Don't expect to see the same applications that you find in other Sony Ericsson phones - the software is completely different underneath, and not all "traditional" Sony Ericsson applications have been ported across.

On GSM, the talktime of both handsets is a truly remarkable 12 hours, dropping to a reasonable 4 hours on 3G. Standby time is around 15 days, and the Sony Ericsson G700 and G900 can manage up to 2.5 hours of video calls.

What is remarkable about these two handsets is just how normal they are. Sony Ericsson have fitted two perfectly ordinary and very practical mobile phones with a touchscreen while rivals Nokia are still dithering about. Perhaps touch will be the killer application during 2008.. and if it is, then Sony Ericsson have a head start.
