Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot - Imaging communication

"With the Cyber-shot phone we aim to create a new lifestyle of ‘imaging communication' by combining Sony Ericsson's unique mobile applications and Sony digital imaging technologies," said Rikko Sakaguchi, Senior Vice President, Product and Application Planning, Sony Ericsson. "Our aim has always been to innovate and create new values for the mobile life, and with the Cyber-shot phone we will enable anyone to enjoy an entirely new level of communication - taking quality pictures of anything, anytime and anywhere, and sharing their precious moments with others."

 

Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot - Dual front phone design

The handsets have a classic Sony Ericsson design, with a large screen and responsive, tactile keypad with a sleek and stylish dual front phone design. Turn the phones horizontally and there you have a digital still camera. Simply slide the active lens cover downwards and a user interface similar to that of a Cyber-shot camera automatically appears.

 

Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot - 3.2 Megapixel resolution

The superb technology within the K800 and K790 deliver a new level of imaging quality in camera phones. High resolution, sharp, crisp images are guaranteed every time thanks to added features more common to standalone cameras. 3.2 Megapixel resolution with Auto Focus is just the start. The cameras in K800 and K790, like in any digital still camera, have a Xenon flash that gives sharp and colourful pictures even in the dark with red-eye reduction included. Also, the image stabilizer function compensates for the small hand movements that can make pictures blurred.

 

 

Sony Ericsson K800 & K790 - BestPic technology

A completely new feature developed by Sony Ericsson is BestPic, which ensures that you never ‘miss' an important picture. Press the shutter button once and get 9 full quality 3.2 megapixel pictures to choose from in a time sequence - 4 pictures before and 4 pictures after the actual image you captured. All 9 pictures are displayed as icons on the display. Simply scroll backwards and forwards through the 9 images and save the ones you like best.

 

Sony Ericsson K800 & K790 - Digital imaging lifestyle

The K800 and K790 offer full support for a complete digital imaging lifestyle. Printing is possible without the need for a PC thanks to PictBridge, a feature that transfers pictures directly to a printer by using a USB cable. Storing and managing image files on your PC are made easy with the supplied Adobe software, and the phones are among the first to feature fully integrated Picture Blogging Blogging is growing exponentially as a way of sharing personal experiences with words and images, and Picture Blogging in K800 and K790 allows users to create and update personal blogs directly from the phone in just a few clicks.

 

Sony Ericsson Cybershot - HTML browsing

Business users will find the K800 and K790 valuable work tools while out of the office and the sleek Velvet Black casing fits neatly with the professional image. Full HTML browsing with RSS feeds and Google Search give you high-speed, graphic-rich Internet use. Support for standard push email and a connectivity suite comprising Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0 and Memory Stick Micro (M2) means that keeping in touch is effortless. A complete entertainment package including music player, 3D gaming and an RDS FM radio are also provided for business downtime or relaxation.
