Sony Ericsson K850i: Taking camera-phones to another level

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , | Posted on Sunday, November 18, 2007

If you're an aspiring photographer, or simply just love taking photos, then the K850i will bring sparkles to your eyes! The K850i is Sony Ericsson's new flagship Cyber-shot mobile handset which features a 5.0 megapixel camera, a 16x digital zoom and Xeon flash, an Automatic lens cover and a beautiful 2.2” crystal bright display. The phone also boasts an innovative auto-rotate feature which lets you display your photos in the correct aspect - portrait or landscape – irrespective of the orientation it was taken in.

The K850i comes in a choice of two colors - Luminous Green and Velvet Blue, which in both models, the plastic the front face is coated in is black, while the navigation key’s rim and side-mounted inset varies in each color. The glossy surfaces on the phone might be prone to fingerprints and smudges, but it's nothing a quick wipe with a cloth can't handle. One thing's for sure, the glossyness sure makes the phone look super sexy.

One cool feature is the touchscreen function which lets you navigate your way through the menu. It takes a while to get used to, but after a few hours, we're sure you'll get the hang of it.

Another feature which will definitely make local Bloggers take notice is the "post to blog" option. Simply take a picture and you'll be able to send it via MMS directly to your designated blog on Blogger. You can read more about that here.

Easily switch between Camera, Video or View function, just as you would do on a digital camera.

Overall, Sony Ericsson's K850i excels as a camera phone with innovative features that make it very desirable to both normal and the more photo-savvy users. Perhaps, more important for those who want to be up-to-date with their mobile technology, the phone's HSDPA (3.5G) connectivity will ensure you have broadband mobile Internet speeds once the service is available in the near future.

The Sony Ericsson K850i is available at Incomm for B$898.00, with further discounts when you present your DST Card.
