Sony Ericsson files patent application for self-adjusting cell phone projectors

Posted in Design/Concept by Alex on February 23rd, 2008

Sony Ericsson self-adjusting cell phone projector patentWith pico projectors coming soon, Sony Ericsson has picked a perfect time to file a patent describing self-adjusting mobile phone projectors.

The phone’s camera would analyze the picture coming from the projector and could adjust it for color, brightness, and focus. This would ensure the best possible image coming from your phone every single time.

This is a great idea, and it would work perfectly in cell phones considering that you can move them just about anywhere to project an image. We’re excited to see a system like this in action.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 set to wow, steal iPhone users

Posted in Gadgets by Alex on February 10th, 2008

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1As the company puts it, the XPERIA X1 “redefines premiumness,” and from the looks of the phone we wouldn’t say anything less.

The X1 has all of the features that the iPhone is missing, and then some. This one really does seem to be poised to become the phone of all phones.

The XPERIA X1 has a 3 inch VGA touchscreen sporting a resolution of 800×480. A fully functional QWERTY keyboard slides out from the side for all of your messaging, emailing, and web browsing needs. Of course to do that you need a fast connection as well, so, unlike the iPhone, the X1 supports 3G HSDPA for data transfer speeds up to 3.6Mbits.

The phone has an ‘always on’ internet connection, the ability to send and receive files while in a call, streaming video support, and a video call feature.

For more details, check out the product page here.

No word on price or availability yet, but we can’t wait until the X1 makes its way Stateside. Well done, Sony. Another picture after the jump. Read more »

Sony Ericsson C902 and C702 – portable high-end photography

Posted in Gadgets by Joel Levin on February 10th, 2008

C902Sony Ericsson has just announced quite a few new phones, including the Cybershot C902 and C702 models. The 902 features a 5 megapixel camera, HSDPA, 160MB internal memory, an M2 slot, and a 240×320 2-inch display with 260k colors. The camera is perfect for people who don’t want to carry a full-fledged digital camera everywhere but want to be able to take a high quality photograph should a moment requiring one come up.

The C702 is similar to the C902, but with a weaker camera at 3.2 megapixels and a slightly larger 2.2-inch display.

The press release for both can be found here. Nice going Sony Ericsson, these phones have some really great features that we hope will start showing up more often in other phones.
