The Sony Ericsson K750 is built upon the imaging know-how of its parent company Sony Corporation. The K750 is rich with features that are now common in stand alone digital cameras but new to mobile phones, such as Autofocus, 4x digital zoom, red eye reduction and an intuitive user interface. The camera operates horizontally for stable, well framed shots. If used with the Sony Ericsson PhoneFlash MXE-60 it is possible to take pictures in the dark from several meters away and it also helps reducing red eye.
Images can be shared with a host of other devices via Memory Stick Duo, Bluetooth and Infrared. Also a USB cable comes with the phone for fast transfer of pictures, video and music to and from a PC. There’s no need to use a PC to print photos as images can be sent wirelessly to a Bluetooth printer or they can be transferred via a Memory Stick to a compatible printer or to the photo kiosks that are now turning common in phot stores. In combination with the Bluetooth Media Centre MMV-200, the K750 can be used to view pictures and videos on a TV screen and easily share them with friends and family in a fun and entertaining way.
The K750 comes with an internal 32MB memory, which can hold nearly 100 full size pictures and an external memory slot which accepts Memory Stick Duo up to 2GB, which should be enough for more than 6,000 shots at lower resolution. A 64MB Memory Stick Duo is supplied with the phone.
The K750 also provides some fun, with a 3D Java games engine, integrated MP3 player and built-in FM radio.
The phone also sports some tools for personalising the phone and mixing video, stills, sound and text. VideoDJ allows users to create their own animations; PhotoDJ is a simple photo editor for enhancing shots; and PlayNow enables users to download fresh new music tones direct to their phone and personalised ringtones and sound effects can be created with MusicDJ.
The K750 is available in black and silver and will be on sale from Q2. It will comes in two variants: K750i (triple band 900/1800/1900 MHz) for European/Asia Pacific market and K750c (triple band 900/1800/1900 MHz for China Mainland).
