The Sony Ericsson Vivaz, announced today, follows on from the Xperia X10 announced in November 2009, and is the second phone in the new Sony Ericsson family of communication entertainment phones coming to market in the first half of 2010. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz will come to market in Q1 2010.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz comes with high quality HD video, with options to load video and pictures directly to YouTube and Picasa photo sharing service.
The open platform also allows users to personalise their entertainment experience by downloading applications through PlayNow and the Symbian Developer Community.
“User-generated content, especially video, is exploding on the web,” said Brendan Johnston, Oceania Managing Director Sony Ericsson. “With Sony Ericsson Vivaz, we have created a mobile phone that captures spontaneous moments in high quality video and upload that self expression onto the web to share with the world. Sony Ericsson Vivaz offers beauty inside and out with an open and intuitive user experience allowing consumers to capture, view and share their lives and spontaneity in HD quality.”
The company says the Sony Ericsson Vivaz features the new design philosophy ’human curvature’, first introduced with the Xperia X10, which will become a consistent feature of Sony Ericsson’s portfolio going forward. The handset is "designed to mirror the shape of the human body, and at the same time delivering a precise and compelling phone interaction."
Users will also be able to easily access social networking features, including Facebook and Twitter.
Sony Ericsson Vivaz supports UMTS HSPA 900/2100 and GSM GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 or UMTS HSPA 850/1900/2100 and EDGE 850/900/1800/1900.
Sony Ericsson Vivaz will be available in New Zealand from Q1 in the colours Moon Silver, Cosmic Black, Galaxy Blue and Venus Ruby.
