Sony Ericsson reveal compact K-series phone, geared to the Web
Sony Ericsson has announced the K660, an HSDPA (‘mobile broadband’) enabled phone with features such as illuminated shortcut keys, and desktop tickers that provide regular updates from favourite websites.

“Sony Ericsson’s vision is to offer ‘Generation Web’ a mobile internet experience that’s rich, user-friendly and satisfying,” says Martin Winkler, Head of Web Marketing at Sony Ericsson “This Web-optimised phone is a clear step along that journey and will appeal to individuals who are managing their busy lives and social networks online, whether its arranging to meet up for a football match or booking concert tickets.”

The Sony Ericsson K660 also comes with Google Maps for Mobile, allowing instant interaction with maps that let users zoom in or out, or pan in any direction. The software also provides point-to-point directions when provided with a start point and destination.

The phone’s navigation key serves as a “mouse pointer” when in Web mode, letting users find their way around the page just as they would on a PC. It indicates when a part of the page is clickable and where text input is possible. It is also possible to zoom in for a closer look at text or images.

The K660 also sports a Bookmark function, a single click button that takes users back to the Home Page and an ‘Enter Address’ shortcut.

It also squeezes Bluetooth wireless technology and a 2.0 megapixel camera into its compact frame, with automatic picture upload to a blogging or sharing site.

The UMTS/HSDPA 2100 and GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 phone will be available in selected markets from Q1 2008.
