From September, T-Mobile customers will be able to get hold of Sony Ericsson's TM506 cellphone: which is also T-Mobile's first HSDPA handset. The two-megabyte flip-phone is a pretty standard tri-band GSM, with dual-band UMTS/HSDPA for 3G connectivity, Bluetooth 2.0 and a 2-megapixel camera. Doesn't look like you can do video calling, but video messaging is enabled and it has aGPS on-board. It'll be available from September 3, for an as-yet-unknown price, in a green and black color scheme. [BGR and IntoMobile]
I didn't ask what MB is short of. I asked what the "two-megabyte" mentioned in the article refers to. I don't know of any 3G device with just 2MB of storage. That's ridiculously low. Even very low end devices tend to have tens of megabytes interal storage. Also while 2MB of heap memory is typical for devices of this category that's probably not what this refers to as the heap memory size is not commonly referenced outside of developer documentation as it doesn't really mean anything to end users. Also heap memory typically is also only meaningful in terms of how much is made available to the Java VM, which is the only application environment available for 3rd party apps in this type of device. That's not a number you would use in the declaration of a device like this.
So the question still stands: what the hell is the "two megabyte" mentioned here referring to!? Is it a typo and was it really meant to be "two megapixel"? But then again, the next sentence says that so that would be saying the same thing twice.
