Sony Ericsson yesterday announced the G705 and the G705u – its special Orange-branded variant. These two phones will be Sony Ericsson’s first phone to support UMA, which will give users the ability to make calls via the regular cellular networks as well as LAN networks!
So let’s take a quick look at the major eye-catching specifications of the G705, 2.4 inch display (QVGA resolution), HSDPA/HSUPA (HSUPA for the American model), WLAN with support for DLNA, GPS with support for aGPS, FM radio with RDS, NetFront browser, A2 platform, 3.2 mega pixel fixed focus camera. A 1 GB memory card is included as a standard bundle. It is essentially a C905 with added HSUPA, but without the excellent camera!
Sony Ericsson didn’t fail to add a few extra goodies though, the mobile giant also announced yesterday a new partnership with Google, meaning that you’ll be able to download and upload videos from and to YouTube directly from the G705, which is pretty neat for those who like to video-blog. The good thing is this feature will not be exclusive to the G705 but also future models.
The G705 will be available in Silky Gold and Majestic Black in early Q4 – that’s soon! The American model supporting the faster HSUPA networks will be available sooner, in Q1. The G705u will be available in early Q4 as well in Luminous Black!
