Exclusive: Large update on Paris

‘Paris’ is the codename of the speculated high-end phone P5.
Sliding keyboard and different home screens you can navigate between by pressing left and right. Also, we’ve got a sliding mechanism on the back of the phone as a lens protector for the camera. “5 MP” is also stated on the back near the camera. It comes with a stylus even though the user interface can easily be used with your finger as well. It’s black and a bit smaller than P1. It has a built-in GPS (NaviLink 5.0 NL5350) with WayFinder 7.0 built-in as well as a weather application and the new Opera Mobile 9 with intelligent zoom and widgets. Based on OMAP34xx hardware platform.

Paris is going to be announced along with Beibei, if everything goes as planned, which it should.

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

First Hint Of Z770i

We just love Sony Ericsson, don’t we? All these little leaks to keep us busy. 😀

Newest entry in the Fun & Downloads area is a mysterious file called “test_z770.mp4”, a video with:

  • 352 x 288 pixels
  • 15 fps
  • MPEG-4 with 560 Kbps

No further information is available at this point.

Btw, it’s another “You read it first on USEB” 😉

Small update on Beibei

We’ve got yet another small update on the upcoming Beibei phone. It appears that it’ll be running UIQ 3.2 and will feature the same Walkman player as on the lovely W960. Furthermore, it’ll have a radio and a camera lens cover. For what I’m concerned, there’s a slight chance it’ll also feature auto focus.

Update! It will also feature Opera Mobile 9 with widgets support!

Update 2! Beibei will feature an integrated GPS from Texas Instruments, called NaviLink 5.0 NL5350. You can find out more info about it right here! This will work with the built-in WayFinder 7.0 navigation application.

Key features:

  • Single chip using TI’s DRP™ technology
  • The smallest GPS solution with a board area around 25 mm2
  • Lowest total bill-of-materials for a complete GPS system with only 11 external passives required
  • Low power with integrated power management
  • High GPS performance with weaker satellite signals, exceeding 3GPP and 3GPP2 requirements
  • Optimized to interface with TI’s 3G chipsets and OMAP™ processors to deliver a complete solution for handset OEMs

By the way, it is optimized to run on OMAP 😉

WLAN is also built-in.

Exclusive: Beibei photoshop

Here goes another USEB exclusive. This is the first ever photoshop of the upcoming Beibei from Sony Ericsson. It’s a slim Walkman smart phone running UIQ with a touch screen, 3.2 mega pixels camera and a scroll wheel instead of joystick. Very interesting!

Is this a Sony Ericsson K850i variant?

The pictures you are looking at are probably of a variant of Sony Ericsson’s flagship 5 megapixel camera phone – the K850i. There were rumours floating around about the existence of such a phone and these pictures from www.pconline.com.cn confirm them all the more. The variant, which should be indexed in the K8xx series, will have a manual shutter and physical soft keys rather than the touch keys found on the K850i. The missing Xenon flash is a bit of a shock and the overall design of the phone seems in line with the T-series rather that the K-series. Speculated specifications hint at a 16 million display screen and GPS positioning service. Let’s see if we see this one at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Info on two upcoming low-end T-series phones

Sony Ericsson is planning to do a product announcement in India at the 24th this month. Here they will announce two low-end phones with radio features. We’ve now got the exclusives on these phones. They will be named T270 and T280, and will as said both be featuring a built-in radio. Furthermore they’ll both have Bluetooth support, a 128 x 160 pixels display and a thickness of 14 millimetres. The T280 will feature a simple camera, while T270 won’t feature any. Design is very much like T250 with the exception of the colour scheme. The top part of the phone will differ from the bottom part, that remains in a metallic colour on the T270, while the T280 will have a black bottom part and a rather dark metallic upper part. The T270’s upper part will be brown.
