Sony Ericsson announces the Aspen Window Mobile 6.5.3 business model
2 February 2010 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
Today Sony Ericsson announced the Sony Ericsson Aspen business model. It is the first model running the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 operating system.
Sony Ericsson Aspen is a full QWERTY model. Something we haven't seen from Sony Ericsson since the legendary P1 from 2007. With the dimensions 117 x 60 x 12.4, the Aspen is slightly larger than the P1 (106 x 55 x 17). This kind of QWERTY candybar display design has been missing from the Sony Ericsson portfolio for some time and many of our regular visitors has been looking a device with this layout.
The Aspen has everything you might want for business usage. The QWERTY keyboard, 2.4-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi, A-GPS and Google Maps and microSD card slot. As usual, the business range of devices by Sony Ericsson are not blessed with the best camera. Or at least not the highest resolution. Aspen has a ordinary 3.2 megapixel camera.
It is nice to see that Sony Ericsson are continuing expanding the GreenHeart portfolio. The Aspen will be the fifth device in the green range where Naite, C901 GreenHeart, Elm and Hazel was the previous models. GreenHeart devices are recognized by only having e-manuals, waterborne paint, Energy Star V level charger and reduced packaging. This green engagement was recently rated by Greenpeace and Sony Ericsson did very well.
