Sony Ericsson takes touchscreen mainstream with two phones set to simplify your life

10 February 2008

The new G700 and G900 phones are designed to give back time. They place personal organiser features and easy finger-touch control within familiar form factors.

Barcelona, Spain – 10th February 2008 – Sony Ericsson today launched a new generation of phone: Touchscreen organisers with a broad appeal. The G700 and G900 phones are essential tools designed to organise the lives of all those with busy schedules to juggle, both at home and at work.

  • The G700 is here to help you live your life to the full. This personal organiser in-your-pocket keeps your contacts, calendars, notes, pictures and favourite Web sites all in one place and just a fingertip away. Touch and go.

  • The G900 has all the functions of the G700 with the added features of a unique new 5.0 megapixel Touch Auto Focus camera, touch photo album and editor. Perfect for those looking for a one-touch media experience combined with their organiser.


“Sony Ericsson is delivering touchscreen and innovative organiser capabilities to a wide audience without compromising on the size or shape of the phone. Both the G700 and G900 have regular keyboards and are no larger than a regular phone.” says Martin Winkler, Director Global Marketing and Head of Multimedia Web at Sony Ericsson. “These phones are ideal for users that are only interested in making their lives simpler. It’s not about technology for the sake of it.”

Sony Ericsson G900 phone

  • One touch media experience
  • 5.0 megapixel camera with touch Auto focus and Multi-shot function
  • One- touch media and organiser menu
  • Large 2.4" display with single touch control menu
  • Wi-Fi™ for high speed data transfer and internet browsing


Print-quality photos to keep
The G900’s 5.0 megapixel camera lets you take print-quality photos and share them with friends and family straight away.

Frame your shot and decide where you want to focus the camera by simply touching the screen. Also, with Camera Multi-Shot, hold down the camera key and take as many pictures as you like. Great for taking photos of your kids as they dash around the garden! Scroll through all of the photos on your phone with touch control and even edit them there with the Touch photo album and editor.

Stay mobile
Got a moment to surf? Access your favourite Web pages when you’re in a Wi-Fi™ hotspot and view them on the large 2.4” display. Use the stylus or your finger to zoom-in or pan around the page.

The G700 will launch in Silk Bronze and the G900 will launch in Dark Red and Dark Brown. Both are UMTS 2100 and GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 phones that will be available in selected markets from Q2 2008.

sorry couldnt resist. just having a laugh

carry on.....


Do you mean the size of their market share? Yes your right.


razec its WM mate. Nokia have been using OMAP2 processors for over 2 years. Do you really think X1 is going to be a mass market seller like the N95? I highly doubt it.

As for the G900 its a nice phone but I think Nokia will kick these phones into check aswell. With the 6220 and many more mid range phones with high end specs to come it doesnt look good for SE.

I am disappointed at the quality of the photos taken by the G900 as seen in the Mobile-Review review of the unit.

There was this mist/cast all over the photos. Hmm. Now I dunno what will be my next

Dirty lens




Clean lens

Any word on what chipset the G900 is using? Is it going to be the same one used in P1 and W960? And what clockspeed?

I think it's a safe bet that I'll be sticking to my P1i! I don't think I could go back to a smaller screen!

Have Sony Ericsson released updates to UIQ through firmware in the past? I am interested in this phone as it has the features I require in my preferred form factor, but I am also keen on the new features in UIQ. If this is shipping with version 3 of UIQ, is it likely an upgrade will be available to 3.3? Thanks

Thanks Ares - while I am keen on this model I'll wait for the UIQ3.3 phones to be announced before purchase.
