Reviewing the Mobile World Congress, let’s continue with SE G700

I decided that every device needed it’s fame moment, therefore I decided to write a little bit on pretty much every major phone we saw at the Mobile World Congress that ended in Barcelona on Thursday.

Sony Ericsson wasn’t scared of showing their touchscreen devices as Nokia, because Nokia is saving it all for S60 Touch UI. The G700 is a mid-range smartphone, equipped with Symbian UIQ. UIQ was always the preference in Sony Ericssons, although S60 has won the hearts of most of us. The device features a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, image stabiliser, a LED flash. To display all this, a satisfying 2.4″ LCD was included, with QVGA resolution. The internal memory only counts with 160MB, and there is a port for M2 memory cards, although these can be quite expensive. There is 3G but no HSDPA. To join the norm, Bluetooth in the phone is v2.0 and has A2DP support. TrackID was also included, and it is no longer an exclusive of the Walkman series. For the touchscreen usage, there are sticky notes, and handwriting recognition.
According to the specifications, there is a blogging application, which I really want to get my hands on, to see what it is all about.
