Sony Ericsson’s G502 to be unveiled on Apr 23th

This sounds more concrete than the rumored beibei, coming from the unofficial authority on everything Sony Ericsson. The G502 will be officially announced on this Wednesday, April 23, 2008.

It lands smack in the middle of SE range with not many notable features to speak of.

The design is reminiscent of many other Sony Ericsson’s phones from the past, like the K530 and the K660. Even the feature sets don’t stray too far from those predecessors. Here is a quick look at what it offers:

  • Measures 109 x 46 x 13.5 millimeters and weighs 83.5 g
  • 2 inch QVGA display with 262k colors
  • 2 megapixel fixed focus camera with 4x digital zoom and video recording
  • A2 software platform
  • Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
  • Access NetFront browser with RSS feed support
  • Google Maps
  • Exchange ActiveSync
  • USB 2.0 support
  • 32 MB internal memory which can be expanded up to 8GB via M2 memory stick

The phone is a bit more thicker than the K660 but weighs lesser than the latter. They are otherwise almost similar to each other in every aspect. The only other notable differences are the Exchange ActiveSync and RSS feed display while the device is on standby. The Access NetFront browsers seems destined to play ball on all web-oriented SE cell phones.

The device makes for a nice low-to-mid end 3G phone but if Sony Ericsson is pushing out identical devices to bridge the gap between now and Xperia’s release, we definitely aren’t buying in.
