Sony Ericsson Announces the G705

 
 

via Boy Genius Report by Zach Epstein on 9/9/08

Sony Ericsson fans have reason to rejoice this morning as the handset manufacturer has finally made its anticipated G705 official. Sure, we’ve seen and read plenty already but now we’ve got the official specs and equally as important, a time line. Here’s where it gets a little tricky; those of you who have been waiting for this sexy little slider are going to have to keep waiting. It looks like the G705 isn’t scheduled to become available here in the US until sometime in Q1 2009, though it will be released in Q4 2008 elsewhere. Some more bad news for US SE fans is that while Sony Ericsson has announced that it will issue a UMA-enabled G705u version of this handset (SE’s first UMA phone), it will be an Orange exclusive. Ok, ok. Enough bad news – now for the good stuff:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900
  • Tri-band 3G in the US version – UMTS/HSUPA 850/1900/2100
  • 2.4-inch display
  • HTML browser
  • Automatic screen-orientation rotation
  • Inbuilt aGPS combined with Google Maps for Mobile and Wayfinder
  • WiFi and DLNA certified, Bluetooth 2.0 (A2DP)
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with Photo fix and geotagging support
  • YouTube compatible – upload video directly to YouTube
