Handphone Hunt #7 - Sony Ericsson Vivaz
Autofocus 8 megapixels digital camera with LED flash (potential torchlight here!), 360x640 pixels resolution 3.2" screen, full connectivity (Bluetooth, Wifi 802.11b/g, HSPA, (recently) open source Symbian^1 OS means lots of ready apps (though outdated OS), 720 MHz (!?!?!?) CPU with PowerVR SGX dedicated graphics accelerator, mini USB, micro
USB SD support, 3.5" headphone jack and Flash support seem like a phone for me to lust for. Other secondary goodies (for me, that is) are 720p video recording, touch focus, smile and face detection and A-GPS that helps to geotag photos taken with the camera. Some worrying turnoffs are the resistive touchscreen which may be a problem under sunlight and the rather vague (and misleading?) 75MB of RAM. Missing from various websites are the real world battery life and price.
