Sony Ericsson is launching two new Cyber-shot cameraphones with mapping features. One of them, the 3.2Mp Cyber-shot C702 also has a built-in GPS location function.
The Sony Ericson Cyber-shot C702's GPS (global positioning satellite) module will enable users to automatically log where their snaps were taken. Both the C702 and the C902 will come preinstalled with the Google Maps for Mobile application. In the case of the Cyber-Shot C702, the maps be can combined with the GPS module for turn-by-turn navigation.
The Sony Ericsson C902 will have a 5Mp camera built in while the C702 will be a 3.2Mp cameraphone. The Cyber-shot phones, which are being launched at the Mobile World Congress mobile phone industry trade show this week, are both dust-resistant and splashproof. The slimline C902 handset has a face-detection feature and autofocus to enable sharper snaps and can additionally capture video clips. X-Pict story software is included so uses can add music and transitions to photos taken on the cameraphone.
Both the Cyber-shot C702 and C902 handsets come with 160MB of internal memory. This can be supplemented via a Memory Stick Micro. The handsets come with Bluetooth and can double as digital music players.
Available in either black or blue, the Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot phones will be available from Q2. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.
