An attractive midrange 3.5G clamshell, the Sony Ericsson T707 definitely falls into the "fashion phone" category.

This is a glossy device with a number of different lighting effects and an a bold, circular sweep on the outside the surrounds the small external display. In design terms, there is a lot of the Z750 and Z780 in this phone, and it is perhaps a little odd that Sony Ericsson have dropped the "Z" designation that they have always used for clamshell phones in the past.

Sony Ericsson say the the themes change between night and day, individual callers can be assigned their own lighting effects and the T707 has gesture controls for muting calls or silencing the alarm.

There will be three colours available, Spring Rose, Lucid Blue and Mysterious Black. It is quite a girlie phone to look at, and the range of "Maria Sharapova" accessories (such as a carry bag) definitely reinforce this impression.

Underneath the glossy and attractive exterior is a fairly standard Sony Ericsson device. This is quad-band GSM phone with support for UMTS and HSDPA data. The T707a (for the Americas) supports tri-band UMTS 850 / 1900 / 2100, elsewhere the T707 supports 2100 MHz UMTS only. In other words, this is a 3G device with support for high-speed downloads where networks allow. The T707 supports Memory Stick Micro (M2) cards, comes with stereo Blutooth, a multimedia player and an FM radio.

 Sony Ericsson T7078 The display is a fairly standard 2.2" 240 x 320 pixel panel, outside is a 1.1" 128 x 36 pixel monochrome screen. Also on the outside is what appears to be a fairly basic 3.2 megapixel camera.

There's a web browser, email client, RSS reader plus support for Google Maps and YouTube. The T707 also supports picture and video blogging.

Although the T707 does not comes with GPS, it can be used with an optional GPS receiver. Even without GPS, it seems to be able to geo-tag photographs with an approximate position based on the location of the local cellular base-station.

The T707 is fairly lightweight for a 3G clamshell, coming in at 95 grams. Maximum talktime on 3G is a useful 4 hours with up to 16 days standby time.

If you look at the plain technical specifications, then the T707 isn't a very exciting phone. But the glossy finish and pleasing design do make it a very attractive handset, which we think should give it definite market appeal.

Sony Ericsson say that the T707 should be available sometime during Q2 2009.
