Sony Ericsson’s CyberShot C905 makes an appearance, again
I know it’s really hard to keep something as big as an 8.1-megapixel-toting cell phone under the wraps for a long time, but then only Apple can do that without so much as a whiff of what’s cooking until the last minute. The last time, we brought you a blurry picture confirming that Sony Ericsson’s yet-to-be announced CyberShot C905 a.k.a Shiho does indeed have an 8.1 megapixel camera with Xenon flash to boot. Now, feast your eyes on some of that eye candy in all black and ready to kick some collective cameraphone asses, thanks to the Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog whose keen eyes picked out these pictures on the SE4M forums.
These pictures show the black C905 to be a bit on the pudgy side measuring 19.5 mm in size while being 136 g light. Not much compared to that digital camera and its size when you have to carry it around on your vacations, right? There is also lens protector on the backside that is similar to other phones in the CyberShot series, a great idea but nothing new there.
Apart from its awesome lens, the C905 could be mistaken for pretty much any other mid to high-end 3G cell phone. You will find HSDPA support, a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, aGPS, an accelerometer, and a MicroM2 memory slot under the hood along with DLNA-equipped WiFi, opening a world of other DLNA-supporting devices to share media with. But being a camera-centric cell phone, Sony Ericsson has been smart enough to throw in a handful of photo-oriented applications including autofocus, SmartContrast, red-eye reduction, image stabilization, and BestPic technology.
With all these features, the C905 could beg for a price tag of around $650 to $750 when it becomes available in Q408, but let’s just have Sony Ericsson get on with its official announcement spare us these wild speculations, shall we?
