While Sony Ericsson's K810 ain't coming here anytime soon, we get the slimmer (14mm vs 17mm), 2MP version. It doesn't do image stabilization. It has only 64MB of user memory that you can't expand. And it doesn't have that bright xenon flash. But the bugger is coming to the US, end of Q2. We'll take it. A slim cybershot is better than no cybershot. At least it has the nifty trackID software that can identify music you play into its mic. Available in white and black.

K550 Cyber-shot™ phone brings the experience to more people

Even if you are new to camera phone photography or the Cyber-shot™ experience, the new K550 is designed to be an intuitive integration of a highly-specified digital camera with a mobile phone. Simply slide open the lens cover to activate the camera and the Cyber-shot™ menu appears in the phone's screen, which at 1.9" serves as a clear viewfinder.

Once an image has been captured, sharing it can be done in a number of ways, each one a simple process. Picture blogging makes it simple to send images to a blog site; support for Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) allows the user to transfer images easily between compatible devices and Bluetooth™ 2.0 provides for simple sharing with other phones and Bluetooth-equipped devices. PictBridge makes it possible to print directly via USB (provided in-box) from the K550 to a compatible printer; cutting out the computer and the complexity.

Available in Jet Black or Pearl White, the K550 Cyber-shot™ phone is a Quad-Band EDGE device and will launch in North America from Q2 2007.
