Sony Ericsson unveils the T630 camera phone

Putting an end to phones having a front and a back, the T630 has two sides. One for the camera with a mirror to aid self-portraiture, the other for telephony, featuring easy access to communications, imaging and gaming. Its in-built camera, bright 65K TFT colour screen, fun-to-use features and sleek design are set to make the T630 a bestseller.
 
The triple-band GSM/GPRS T630 features QuickShareâ„¢, which represents ease of use and will be the key principle behind all new camera phones from Sony Ericsson. First introduced in the T610, QuickShareâ„¢ has won consumer praise for being the smartest way for mobile imaging on the market. Not only can a picture be taken with only two clicks, it is also easy and intuitive to share pictures between the phone, a PC and other consumer devices – either locally over Bluetooth, Infrared or cable, or across the mobile phone networks with MMS or e-mail.
The bright 65K TFT-screen provides high colour contrasts, providing a responsive viewfinder for the camera, pleasant viewing of images and a great gaming experience.

The popular racing game, V-Rally2, comes pre-loaded in the T630, providing a great gaming experience through the excellent graphics, 32-tone polyphonic sound, force feedback and joystick control. The T630 supports both Java and Mophun platforms which give access to over 100 games which are available for download from the Fun & Downloads-section of Sony Ericsson’s web site as well as operator portals.

Budding record producers but also regular punters can express their originality with the innovative Music DJ function in the T630. It is a 4-track sequencer with which bass lines, drumbeats and chords can be mixed in just a few seconds into original ring signals.

A new Sony Ericsson application called My Friends is premiered in the T630 based upon a Wireless Village instant messaging implementation. It is an enhanced messaging facility that let consumers quickly access a list of contacts and easily choose the mode of communication such as SMS, MMS, e-mail, or chat. Wireless Village is the industry standard for mobile Instant Messaging.

The T630 comes in an attractive “Frosty Silver” colour scheme, which combines frosted transparency with a metallic feel. For the Chinese market, the T628 will be launched in Q4, for Americas and EMEA, the T630 will be available in Q1 2004.
