The Sony Ericsson C902 is a cyber-shot phone that is the successor to the K850. Beginning with the C702 and this model Sony will no longer call them cyber-shot phones but just “C” series. The Sony Ericsson C902 is from a higher class than its predecessor and comes with a 5 megapixel camera that comes complete with a brand new type of flash that Sony calls a PhotoFlash. Except for a slimmer design and an enhanced interface in the camera there are few improvements in the specifications for the Sony Ericsson C902 compared to the K850.
The Sony Ericsson C902 also has a different design than the K850. This new design is called the candybar design and is about 40% slimmer than the K850 with a sleeker and classier look. The TFT display on the Sony Ericsson C902 is 2.0″ compared to the 2.2″ on the K850 but it still has the same resolution. It was necessary to reduce the TFT display because of the touch shortcuts that were added to both sides on this model.
The lid on the Sony Ericsson C902 protects both cameras that are included on this model. You will open the lid manually revealing both cameras but one is used for video calling, and you do not need to open the lid to use it. Except for a few shortcuts that have been added to the keypad, the camera’s interface remains the same as in the K850. These are just minor changes and should have no effect on the user’s ability to operate either camera.
The importance of the Sony Ericsson C902 is in Sony’s ability to keep up with the future needs and desires of its users. The way Sony identifies its phones by class makes it easier for a user to identify the classification they need. For example, the “W” series is the Walkman phones which have higher quality music players where as the “C” series concentrates on the quality of the camera’s output. The only bad part is that so far Sony has not come up with a music phone that has high quality picture and video capabilities.
Making the choice to switch to the Sony Ericsson C902 means you are taking a step into the new generation of cell phones. At the present time it doesn’t appear that there is a Sony Ericsson C902 review available since both the C702 and C902 are still prototypes. That doesn’t mean anyone should hold off ordering one when mobile phone deals become available because Sony Ericsson has a reputation to uphold and will not put something on the market that they have not tested themselves. If you’re looking for a quality camera phone with excellent video capabilities, the Sony Ericsson C902 is definitely a good choice to make. You want to make sure you keep it in mind when you are ready to buy a new camera phone and be sure to obtain a date from your carrier when it will be available.
