Just to follow up on the news of the latest Sony Ericsson G705 / G705u, we’ve found a video that’s been leaked onto YouTube (the wonders of YouTube!) featuring a demo tour of the phone from SE themselve, check it out, it’s relatively short though…
And here’s video previewing the G705′s user interface, pretty awesome stuff!
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!
When it comes to leading the way in technology and creating world record holding gadgets, you’ve got to give a few thumbs up to the Japanese.
Here, Sony Japan, have once again excited everyone by leading the way and creating the KDL-40ZX1, beating its competitive rival Hitachi in introducing now what is officially the world’s thinnest LCD TV. The previous record holder from Hitachi was the Hitachi 1.5 UltraThin, which you will appreciate was already incredibly thin.
But as you can see in the picture to the right, Sony’s latest creation is even thinner, with a width of just slightly less than 1cm at 9.9mm, the 40-inch KDL-40ZX1 weighs just 26 pounds! It will also feature LED backlighting, 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 120Hz MotionFlow tech, x.v.Color and BRAVIA Engine 2 image processing.
The Sony KDL-40ZX1 will be released in Japan on November 10th, 2008 under a hefty price tag, we’ll keep you updated…
