Sony Ericsson took the wraps off two new phones today, the K800 and K790, each of which feature cameras good enough to carry the Sony Cyber-shot brand name, and come with built-in Blogger software from Google to enable users to create and post pictures to the Internet. The K800 is a dual-mode UMTS/GPRS mobile phone, while the K790 is a Tri Band EDGE mobile. Sony Ericcson says both units will be available in the second quarter of 2006, but they won’t come cheap: expect U.S. prices to be over $400.
“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, Sony Ericsson’s Senior Vice President of Product and Application Planning. “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
