Sony Ericsson debuts the new G705 slider phone. This 3G model features a 2.4" LCD display, WiFi, 3.2 megapixel camera, aGPS, UMTS/HSDPA and YouTube compatibility. The Sony Ericsson G705 will be available in early Q1 2009.
This elegant slider phone, complete with large 2.4” screen, allows users to surf the internet at high speed with turbo 3G and its full HTML browser – just use the shortcut key and you’re straight through to Google™ search from the idle screen. Page a bit too small? Use the illuminated zoom web shortcut key or just tilt the phone and it automatically switches to landscape view.
The G705 keeps you updated with the information most important to you via RSS feeds that are delivered straight to your phone’s desktop. Whether its sport scores or news from around the world, be the first to break that story to friends or work colleagues. Complete with 3.2 megapixel camera and video capabilities, upload your favourite and funny moments straight to the web for friends all over the world to see. Time to relax? Use the phone’s Wi-Fi™ connection to upload pictures, create a picture blog or download music and videos from your favourite web sites. Entertain your friends and family with all your great images on the 1GB memory card, or relax with the sounds you want through the built-in FM radio.
On your way to an important meeting but can’t find your way? The inbuilt aGPS combined with Google Maps™ for Mobile and Wayfinder™ navigation means that you will never have to ask for directions again – and it will even help you find a restaurant or bar to relax with friends and family.
