I just read an article about Mobile Future conference in Stockholm some days ago, where Ericsson’s Bengt Stavenow was talking about the future of Sony Ericsson and its features. I’ll just do a short round up for you guys.
- All Sony Ericsson phones have focus on cost, battery time and size. If a phone doesn’t have a certain feature, it could be because it hasn’t been “compatible” with one of these three things.
- Phones with more networks supported (all in up) will come soon
- 100 Mbps network speed within few years, whereas we’ve got up to 7.2 Mbps HSDPA today.
- More megapixels, but optical zoom will be required for good image quality in a near future.
- Mobile TV is in the works – but what’s important is not what technology that’ll be used, it’s that the consumer gets the TV (streamed) to his phone. This could be a sign of SE finally choosing DVB-H instead of MBMS, which uses 3G.
- Usability and ease of use is important – users must be able to do things with a single click – like saving your camera pictures or sending them off in a MMS.
- “Design is king” and “no technology carries its own weight”, he concluded.
