Sony Ericsson strengthens Cyber-shot phone range with two models that take photos further

10 February 2008

Sony Ericsson's new C702 Cyber-shot and C902 Cyber-shot deliver best-in class picture quality beyond just megapixels.

Barcelona, Spain - 10th February 2008 - Sony Ericsson today announced two high-performance additions to its popular Cyber-shotTM phone range with the launch of the C702 Cyber-shot and C902 Cyber-shot . The two phones, packed with the latest camera technology, make it effortless to take perfect pictures of those spontaneous moments - day or night, at a bar or the beach - and instantly share them with friends and family.

"The two new Cyber-shot phones that we have announced today share certain characteristics. Both phones place ease-of-use and best-in-class picture quality at the heart of their designs," said Sven Tott , Head of Imaging Marketing at Sony Ericsson. "Yet both appeal to different audiences. One is engineered to let you take more pictures in more places and the other is designed to look as stunning as the pictures it takes."

Sony Ericsson C702 Cyber-shotTM - Take pictures everywhere

* Splash and dust resistant* - perfect for your active lifestyle

* Single-handed camera use - for spur-of-the-moment photos

* Built-in GPS with location-based imaging - sort and view your photos according to where you took them

Never too extreme

You can use the C702 Cyber-shot in a range of different conditions, as its unique design means its both splash and dust resistant*. This means that whether you're off-road or just off to the mall, your C702 Cyber-shot phone can always be at your side wherever you go, whatever you do. After all, the best camera is the one you have with you.

Never miss a shot

The C702 Cyber-shot is engineered to let you take pictures in any position. The camera key and the active lens cover are specifically designed and placed so that you can stabilise the 3.2 megapixel camera and capture the moment with one hand - perfect for an active lifestyle. Combine this with steady-grip materials and a wrist-strap provided in-box, and the C702 Cyber-shot really is geared to go more places.

Never lost

The C702 Cyber-shot integrates GPS and a range of location-based imaging services that really add a new dimension to taking and managing your photos. When you take a picture, information about where you are in the world is automatically added to the image. So you can always share your best moments with your friends and family according to where the shots were taken. Or you can simply sort the picture through your photo gallery on the PC or on the web.

If you are lost on your travels, Google Maps for Mobile locates and guides you to where you want to go, enabling you to roam free with confidence. Use GPS to pinpoint your location and then get turn-by-turn voice guidance to your destination. Find your way home or to one of up to 20 million points of interest.

Sony Ericsson C902 Cyber-shot TM - The image and style statement

* Slim Cyber-shot phone with unique slide-out lens cover. Camera-ready in an instant

* Stand out design - instantly recognisable

* 5.0 megapixel camera with Face Detection and Auto Focus. Always capture the best shot possible

* Illuminated camera touch keys. Intuitive guidance around the camera settings

The slim line C902 Cyber-shot will have everyone wanting to have their picture taken. Ultra-compact, stylish and with a unique lens cover that slides open to reveal the 5.0 megapixel Auto Focus camera, the C902Cyber-shot sports a camera performance beyond its sleek and slim looks. The phone's lighting dramatically signals when you are in camera mode by switching from white to blue. The eight camera touch keys come to life and let you choose between camera modes, Photo Flash, Face Detection and Auto Focus, and more with just one touch without moving your finger from the shutter button.

Just shoot

With the C902 Cyber-shot you just need to slide open the active lens cover and shoot. The Face Detection and Auto Focus capability enables the camera to detect and focus on the face of your subject rather than the background, so that you can take sharp and high quality pictures of your friends.

Night shoot

With the C902 Cyber-shot you can be confident of getting the perfect shot. The phone incorporates the latest in lighting technology - Photo Flash - giving you better quality pictures even in low-light conditions. Also, a light solution has been added to the established BestPic feature - which lets you take nine photos in quick succession, choose the best and delete the rest. So now you can use BestPic wherever you are, perhaps even to capture the dance-floor action in a club!

Create your own multi-media slideshow

Use x-Pict story to add music and transitions to your gallery of photos and automatically create your own multi-media slideshow to share with your friends. Lights, music, action!

Store and share

The C902 Cyber-shot comes with a 160MB built-in memory - the equivalent of storage for up to 100 full resolution photos - plus the possibility to add even more memory with the Memory Stick Micro (M2) that can be bundled with the phone depending on the market.

Easy transfer wherever you are

You can transfer the images on your phone to your computer by using the CCR-70 M2 USB Adapter, also announced today. Save your photos to the phone's memory card, remove it and pop it into the CCR-70. You then slot the card reader into your laptop and all your photos can be dragged across! Delete from your Memory Stick and you're ready to go and fill it up again with more memories.
