Sony Ericsson K618 phone: entertainment and business combines

Mobile phones

Sony Ericsson has announced its latest 3G mobile phone, the K618, touted as a phone that satisfies both business and pleasure at the same time. I thought you couldn’t mix those two, but maybe this phone proves me wrong.

This 3G phone is as light and slim as a 2.5G phone (for those of you keeping up with the Gs). It has ‘push email’ (in other words, it comes to you without you having to download it) which should go down well with business users, or anyone who likes immediate spam. There’s bluetooth, a 2 megapixel camera with 2.5x digital zoom, a Picture Blog application so you can post pix straight to your Blogger account, video calling, and a 256Mb memory card expandable to 1Gb.

Available in black or white, it’s coming in September, price to be confirmed.
