Z770i was only the beginning…

Remember our little info regarding the Z770i? Seems the video is not taken by the mobile itself. Today a whole lot of these test_xxxx.mp4 vids popped out of nowhere into Fun & Downloads. You know, a pic says more than thousand words. See the full sheet with known phones greened out after the jump. Continue reading

Exclusive: Beibei user interface pictures

Lots of icons from the upcoming Beibei’s user interface. The phone will be running UIQ 3.2, and this is an exclusive preview of what the future will hold 😀 I guess the picture pretty much speaks for itself, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Sony Ericsson Xperia Series

 xperia.jpg

Rumour has it that Sony Ericsson is planning a new series of ultra high-end multimedia mobile phones / smart phones. This series is to be called “Xperia”, and will without doubt be a direct hit back at some of the other manufacturers’ high-end smart phones.

Well, actually it’s not a rumour, as Sony Ericsson has indeed actually filed the patent for this XPERIA brand (filed on the 10th of January 2008).

This is definitely exciting and I have of course already contacted Sony Ericsson about this (I want to know!), but I’m not sure I’ll get a reply regarding this 😦

You’ll find the patent filing right here.

CES 2008 – what will we see from Sony Ericsson?

ces.jpg

In this blog post I’ll be doing a little foreseeing and will try to put into words what might happen at this year’s CES show in Las Vegas – Sony Ericsson products – and possibly some strategies – of course. CES starts at the 7th and ends on the 10th this month. So, lets get on with it…

w880_preview.jpgLast year at the CES show, Sony Ericsson announced the low-end W200 music phone and previewed the W880, which was then later announced on the 6th of February, about a month later. Furthermore they announced a few accessories.

The year before this they announced the W810 music phone and the portable speakers MPS-60. Again, music focused products. Continue reading

New Sony Ericsson clock patent and 2007 Content Awards winners

se_clock_patent.jpgIt looks like Sony Ericsson has filed a patent about some sort of clock display. Here’s how it’s explained:

The invention relates to a clock display and particularly a clock display comprising a combined electronic display unit and mechanical clock hands. The clock hand has a visible state for showing the time and a transparent state used when in it is not desired to obscure the underlying display unit. The clock display may be incorporated in a portable device, such as a mobile telephone or a wrist watch.

se_cleaning_display.jpgIn addition to this patent, Sony Ericsson has also filed another one – this one being about a self cleaning display. The idea behind this patent – as described in one of SE patent applications – is to add a cleaning slider to the display and connect it to the opening/sliding mechanism of the phone itself. This doesn’t sound that nice in my ears and the concept picture does look a bit silly, too. I hope that’s not the best the R&D team can come up with!

Finally, the winners of the Sony Ericsson Content Awards 2007 have been found. In the category “Gaming” the winning game was “Playman Extreme Running”, in category “Imaging” the winning application was “Pull Face Image”, in “Productive Mobility” the winning application was (of course) “Opera Mini 4.0”. The “Music & Audio” award went to TrackID by Gracenote and the “Themes & Graphics” award finally went to “The geeks” themes and graphics. Furthermore Sony Ericsson felt it necessary to give a Special Recognition Award to “Vringo” for best use of the functionalities available in Sony Ericsson phones. Congratulations to all the winners!

Sony Ericsson Content Awards 2007

content_awards.jpg

Sony Ericsson has launched a new and exciting site at their Developer website. It’s actually an awards showcase where some of the best Sony Ericsson content in 2007 will be awarded. There are five content focus areas:

  • Gaming
  • Imaging
  • Productive Mobility
  • Music and Audio
  • Themes and Graphics

Both J2ME and UIQ 3 content is featured and so are themes for both non smartphones and smartphones.

At the Flash website there are also a few videos of Mats Lindoff (Corporate Vice President) and Jens Greve (Senior Manager and Head of Sony Ericsson Developer World) talking about the future of mobile phones and mobile content. Quite interesting, if you ask me.

In my opinion all the nominees have a good chance of winning, but there can only be one in each category – and you can take part of deciding which one!

You’ll find the flash website right here and more information about the Awards here.

I’m back… with new info

Well guys, looks like I’ve revived my computer and I’m currently trying to install everything again and such – but I’ll be back later this evening!

Anyways, I’ve got some info for you guys.

Text deleted. Also, Sony Ericsson won’t release any devices with DVB-H this year, but next year.

Hope you’re all well! 🙂
