Sony Ericsson unveils the T630 camera phone


LAS VEGAS — Sony Ericsson has unveiled a new mobile phone for easy, stylish mobile imaging, the T630. Putting an end to phones having a standard front and back side, the T630 has two fully functional sides. On one side, the newest mobile phone features a digital camera and small mirror for simple self-portraits. The other side features a bright 65K TFT color screen and easy access to telephony, connectivity, imaging and gaming options. Packaged in a sleek and sophisticated design, the T630’s fun-to-use features and effortless navigation position it to be a best seller.

The triple-band GSM/GPRS T630 features QuickShare, a key ease-of-use principle behind all new camera phones from Sony Ericsson. First introduced in the T610/T616, QuickShare has won consumer praise for being the most intuitive mobile imaging approach on the market. Not only can a picture be taken with just two clicks, but Sony Ericsson has also reduced the number of steps in order to share pictures between the phone, a PC and other consumer devices – either locally over Bluetooth, Infrared or cable, or across the service carrier networks with MMS or e-mail.

The high color contrasts of the bright 65K TFT-screen provides a responsive viewfinder for the camera, plus crisp image viewing and a great gaming experience.

The popular racing game, V-Rally2, comes pre-loaded in the T630, offering an enhanced gaming experience with sharp graphics, 32-tone polyphonic sound, vibrating force feedback and joystick control. The T630 supports both Java and MophunTM platforms for graphic-rich, real time downloads with access to more than 100 games which are available from the Fun & Downloads section of Sony Ericsson’s Web site as well as operator portals.

Budding record producers can express their originality with the innovative Music DJ function in the T630. It is a four-track sequencer with which bass lines, drumbeats and chords can be mixed in just a few seconds to create original and personalized ring tones.

A new Sony Ericsson application titled “My friends” makes its debut in the T630. Based on a Wireless Village instant messaging concept, My Friends is an enhanced messaging function that allows users to quickly access a list of contacts and easily choose the mode of communication such as SMS, MMS, e-mail, or chat.

The T630 will come in an attractive “Frosty Silver” color scheme, which combines frosted transparency with a metallic feel. The T630 will be available in the Americas and EMEA starting Q1 2004 and the T628 for the Chinese market will launch in Q4 2003.
