Sony Ericsson Launches 2003 Phone Line

Sony Ericsson recently launched six new phones -- four GSM/GPRS devices and two CDMA models. Here is the breakdown:

Sony Ericsson's new T610 camera phone

  • T610: Tri-band GSM world phone with a 65,536-color screen that sports a digital camera and J2ME, Bluetooth, a polyphonic ring tone composer, photo sharing, and optional flash accessory. This phone will be available in Q2 2003 in Europe, Asia, and, North America for about $710.
  • T616: This is the same phone as the T610, but with modified GSM 850/1800/1900 for the North America market.
  • T310: A tri-band GSM world phone similar to T300. The phone has some built in games, including Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, and boasts access to more downloadable games through the Mophun mobile platform.
  • T316: This phone is the same as the T310, but with GSM 850/1800/1900 support for North and South America. This phone will ship in Q2 2003.
  • T608: A tri-mode CDMA phone with a 65,536-color display. This device features Bluetooth and J2ME support. It will also ship in Q2 2003.

Sony Ericsson also launched a new mobile music handheld, the Bluetooth-enabled HBM-30. The device can play MP3 and ATRAC3 music files and can connect to any Bluetooth enabled phone, using the phone as a modem for wireless data. The HBM-30 uses Sony's memory stick to store MP3s and is designed to compete with similar, high-end MP3 players like Apple's iPod. The HBM-30 will ship with headphones and one memory stick sometime in the second half of 2003. No word yet on pricing. The company also launched a new PC card, the GC79, for notebooks. The card is designed for use on GSM/GPRS networks and will be targeted at mobile professionals. No word on pricing.
