Sony Ericsson T700

 Sony Ericsson T700 Discontinued
9th August 2008

Sony Ericsson's second attempt at reviving the classic "T-series" line continues with the very compact Sony Ericsson T700 - a lightweight 3.5G handset that uses some of the styling cues from the classic Sony Ericsson T610 and following on from the slightly odd looking T650.

Weighing in at just 78 grams and a thickness of just 10mm, the T700 is incredibly light for a handset of this specification. With 3.5G HSDPA support, 3G UMTS 2100, a QVGA (240 x 320 pixel) display, 3.2 megapixel main camera, video calling, expandable memory, stereo Bluetooth, a multimedia player, stereo speakers and an FM radio, the Sony Ericsson T700 squeezes in an impressive amount of features for a handset of this size.

The T700 includes a decently sized 512MB memory card in the box, and of course this can be expanded using Memory Stick Micro (M2) cards.

Perhaps inevitably there are some compromises. The 2 inch display is quite small compared to some of the T700's rivals, the camera appears to lack autofocus and there doesn't appear to be a standard audio jack socket. On the positive side is the T700's light weight, and the quoted battery life is pretty good too with up to 9.5 hours talktime on GSM and 4.5 hours on 3G.

The handset is attractively finished in a shiny case that mimics the original T610, but with a much more conventional keypad than the odd looking T650. Sony Ericsson say that "the slim elegance of the T700 gives users a premium experience at a mid-range price point - perfect for the design conscious" which pitches the T700 as a fashion phone, although with these specifications it would make a pretty good business phone as well.

Sony Ericsson say that the T700 should be available during early Q4 2008 in "Black on Silver", "Black on Red" and "Shining Silver" colour combinations.
