New phone models from SonyEricsson

5 March 2002
Today SonyEricsson held a press conference and could unveiled very exiting news about their upcoming phone models. An updated T68i and the new model P800 with colour screen and built-in camera. A new CommuniCam and a couple of models for the North American market.
It was the press conference everybody was waiting for. We knew that SonyEricsson had to come with a response to the Nokia 7650 announcement earlier this year. And SonyEricsson did not let us down.

The most exiting model is without doubt the SonyEricsson P800. Some of the features are:
Colour touch-screen, built-in camera, GPRS, tipple band, e-mail, HTML and xHTML support, downloadable Java and C++ games, MMS and more. The P800 will be in the market during Q3 2002.
