Sony Ericsson today announced the Vivaz. A Symbian mobile with HD video recording capabilities

Sony Ericsson Vivaz is the second device from the manufacture in the family of communication entertainment phones. The Xperia X10 being the first.

The most noticable about the Vivaz is probably the HD 720p video recording capabilites with continous auto focus. According to Sony Ericsson, the curvy form factor will be a noticeable characteristic on all devices released in 2010. We have allready seen the Elm and Hazel having curvy forms.

The Xperia X10 running Andoid and now the Vivaz could be the models that are bringing Sony Ericsson back on top in sales figure of high-end devices. Let us hope the software and the usuall Sony Ericsson tweaks are tested thoroughly before final release, and that the phones will be free of bugs this time.

User-generated content, especially video, is exploding on the web," said Lennard Hoornik, Head of Marketing, Sony Ericsson. "With Sony Ericsson Vivaz, we have created a mobile phone that makes it easy to catch life in high quality video and upload that self expression onto the web to share with the world. Sony Ericsson Vivaz offers beauty inside and out with an open and intuitive user experience allowing consumers to capture, view and share their lives and spontaneity in HD quality."

A commond trend is to make 3G phones with video call capabilities without a front camera. This trend are carried on with the Vivaz.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz will be available in certain markeds in first quarter 2010.

End Q1? Hmmm not sure I believe you SE
On 24 Jan 17:54 GammaSharma wrote
The biggest selling phones in terms of SE's compition are:

1) NOKIA 5130 Music Express (Cant get more value for money than that), against which SE has no answers at that price tag with 320x240 pixel, walkman and 2MP cameras.

2) Samsung Star S5230 and Corby S3650 which offers touch capabilities in just over Rs.7000/- price tag with . SE have no answer for that. Cheapest SE Touch device is over Rs.20000/-.

3) Nokia's 5800 music express at Rs.13000/- is a big winner and its cheaper siblings like 5230, 5235 are challenging Samsung Stars status and are very desirable. SE still has not full touch walkman under 10k bucks here.

4) Nokia's E63, E72 with office capabilities and qwerty at Rs.13000/- are the status symbol. SE has no answer with any P-Series devices and the death of UIQ, ended with the P1i which was very popular in spite of it not having GPS.

5) Low- end market are always been dominated by Nokia write form Nokia 1100 days to todays Nokia 1280's. SE has not answer in this segment. In developing countries like India, China, Brazil, Biggest grosser are the low end ones and mid range ones. Students here go for sets at the range of 5k to 10k (13k max with some rich kids).

SE, just study the market trends and which phones are more popular at the moment and try to better that

Things which might help SE now:

1) Capture the mid range and high end CDMA market.

2) Capture the low-end market of monochrome touchscreen and qwerty texting phones, low end walkman players( the sub Rs.5k Market), Radio phones with exchangable cover and a led torch light here.

3) Capture the Rs.5000/- to Rs. 10,000/- market in India with Walkman, Cybershot, Touchscreen and PSP brands, a low end or P1i/G900 based will work here.

4) PSP: Introduce low (NGageQD Form factor with 2MP AF cam with LED Flash and Shake control), mid (slider, accln meter, touch screen and 3.2MP AF cam wit flash and dual shock) and high end(touch screen and gesture control and 5MP/8MP AF with LED Flash) gaming phones with PSP-GO or Nokia NGageQD form factor with 240x320 and 320x240 resolution.

5) CyberShot: Reserve Xenon for only CyberShot models, introduce Optical zoom (atleast 3X optical), touch screen.

6) Walkman: Introduce more low end with 320x240 resolution with good AF cameras but with LED flash only. Ship them with blue tooth stereo headsets which can be docked with the mobile for charging like a smart stylus.

7) P Series: The UIQ might be dead but please continue the P-Series (my personal favorite). Please launch the p5i with acceln meter and ROCK-QWERTY sliders.

8) Smart Stylus: Introduce smart stylus the proximity to which the phone can detect. This can be used for interacting with the mobile in zooming and scrolling when the stylus is moved about the phone.

9) Smart Screen: Better than touch screens, incorporate gesture control for navigating the menu, maps and photos.

10) Introduce biometric id / security system in your mobile phones. The front camera can id the user for security or can adjust settings accordingly, and biometric finger print reader on the side for security.

11) With the advent of gesture recognition system, introduce virtual keyboards which can project the full size qwerty keyboard on the table surface and recognize the finger movements.

12) Mobile with projector attachments which can project up to a screen size of 14" HD.

13) Outdoor rugged mobile with solar charger, compass, altimeter Biometry etc.

14) Integration of TrackID with the walkman player for tagging the songs correctly with info, lyrics and album art in all the formats (aac and wma too) via the internet.

15) Lastly, dont be stingy on the feature front where you remove features for the name sake, like removing a good camera frowalkman and vice versa. Nokia always offer better memo inpack.

This form factor leaves the camera lenses vulnerable to scratch without a cover. And with 3G video calling becoming more available, the lack of front camera is a drag. And the phone looks like a prototype and not attractive enough. Hope the panel is scratch resistance aluminum.
