I promised that I’d do a post answering most of the tons of questions asked in the comments of the Sony Ericsson C905 post. So, this is what I’ll be doing in this post. Note, that it’s possible there might be some slight changes in the final production unit.
Q. What kind of phone is this?
A. It’s a quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE phone (all versions) with UMTS & HSDPA support in the European version (2100 MHz) and American version (850 / 900 / 2100 MHz). We’re guessing it’s 3.6 Mbps HSDPA.
Q. When will it be available and at what price?
A. It’ll be available in early Q4. We expect the price to be around £400 SIM free.
Q. What’s the camera specifications?
A. It’s an 8.1 mega pixel camera sensor (3264 x 2448 pixels) with auto focus and face recognition, and many more advanced camera features. It’s got a xenon flash for still photos, and a photo flash (the improved one) for videos. Videos are recorded in VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels). It does not feature optical zoom.
Q. What kind of display is it?
A. It’s a 2.4 inch large scratch-resistant TFT display made of mineral glass. The resolution is QVGA (240 x 320 pixels). It can show up to 262.144 colours (18 bit).
Q. Is this a smart phone? What’s the OS?
A. No, this is a feature phone, not running any sort of smart phone operating system. It looks like it’ll run a newly developed OS based on the older A2 platform, although this has not been confirmed.
Q. What’s the web browser in it?
A. Access NetFront.
Q. How much memory does it have?
A. 160 megabytes of internal memory storage, and a 2 gigabyte Memory Stick Micro (M2) comes bundled.
Q. Does it feature W-LAN?
A. Yes, it does, and with further support for DLNA. No details on whether this is 802.11b or 802.11b/g.
Q. Does it feature a 3.5 mm jack port?
A. No, it doesn’t feature a 3.5 mm jack port.
Q. Does it feature mobile TV?
A. You can have TV streamed to the phone via UMTS / HSDPA, but there’s no DVB-H support or alike.
I guess that was it
