The Gesture Reading Sony Ericsson T707 Meh Cellphone

I'm still a fan of Sony Ericsson hardware, even on mid-range dumbphones like this T707. No one can say they're not shiny.

It has gesture control for ignoring calls, activated by a motion sensor, I believe, not any sort of accelerometer-triggered death shake you might put down on it. It also has a 3.2 MP cam and the capability to flash different colors depending on the caller. (Setting it to Red for work, green for friends, would work as a nice tonal shorthand for informing your ignore/must-pickup decisions with a glance.)

One day, Sony's powerful hardware designs will be paired with Android, and we'll have choices again beyond the obvious handful of expensive smartphone OSes. Even simple phones like this should have be somewhat platform like. [Sony Ericsson]

Light up your life with Sony Ericsson's stylish new T707 mobile phone
26 March 2009

Add a touch of glamour to your day with the stunning new T707 mobile phone from Sony Ericsson. This innovative phone radiates style and glamour with its unique, eye-catching light effects and gesture control to guarantee you will never be left in the dark!

Miami, USA – 26th March 2009 – Sony Ericsson today announced its latest mobile phone, the T707, with tennis star and style icon Maria Sharapova, who perfectly epitomises the phone's sleek and elegant qualities.

The T707 truly interacts with the user – it lights up when you receive a call and you can personalise the light settings to each of your friends, so you always know who wants you. If you are too busy to answer, simply end the call with a wave of your hand over the screen – you can also do the same gesture to snooze the alarm – your very own magic wand!

"The T707 is my ultimate new accessory," said Maria. "I am always on the go and I need a phone that is easy to use, and of course chic as well! I never miss a call with the eye-catching light effects and personalised pulsation settings and I love the fact that I can just wave my hand to mute a call using the gesture control. I can also use my practical and stylish Bluetooth™ Headset HBH-PV715 to take my calls, check my emails and blog to my website from the phone. It's great to have a phone that looks good but also lets me keep up-to-date with everything I need."

Perfect pixels for every pose
Coordinate the T707 to any outfit, as it comes in a rainbow range of three clam shells to suit every mood. Whatever you wear will be perfectly captured by the 3.2 megapixel camera, making sure that you stand out on screen as much as you do in real life. The photos can then be uploaded to your personal social networking site using the HTML web browser, so you and your friends can keep up to date wherever you are.

Customise your phone like your clothes
With the T707 you will never be left behind in the style stakes, as the 2.2 inch screen is waiting to be customised to your individual taste. The changing wallpaper themes will ensure that you are never caught wearing clashing colours! The theme also changes from day into evening, which is perfect if, like Maria, you need to match with everything from tennis whites to a little black dress.

Packed with extras, as one option is never enough…
This is one accessory you will never leave home without as the T707 packs in more extras than even your handbag. The FM radio and Bluetooth™ audio streaming will entertain you when you are out and about, and you can download music, games and ringtones at the touch of a button with PlayNow™ to ensure that boredom is something which happens to other people!

"The T707 is the next step in the style evolution from Sony Ericsson," said Linda Schori, Global Marketing Business Manager for Style Category, Sony Ericsson. "Maria Sharapova is the perfect partner for us as she exemplifies not only elegance but also substance, just like the T707. It works hard and is also sleek, glamorous and desirable – a truly winning combination!"

Maria knows that all eyes will be on her this season and thanks to her new T707; she can rest assured that whatever she does, she will look stylish, glamorous and be in control of her life with just the wave of a hand.
