Sony Ericsson S001 for Japan is everything you’d want from a Cyber-shot phone

If you thought the C905 is the best-possible Cyber-shot phone, you were wrong.  

Sony Ericsson has just released the S001 in Japan, a new Cyber-shot slider that looks to be a dream come true for any SE fan and even for any user who’s into camera phones.

Coming in a slider form factor, Sony Ericsson S001 has a big 3.3 inch OLED display with 480 x 854 pixels, and an 8.1 MP camera with autofocus, flash, smile shutter and protective lens cover. Well, what can I say, a high-res display + a high-end camera = perfect. 
 
The new phone also features mobile TV capabilities, GSM and WCDMA connectivity, GPS, Bluetooth and so on.

Sony Ericsson S001 is exclusively sold by KDDI Au in Japan, in three color versions: black, pink and green with gold. 

Now the question for Sony Ericsson is: why can’t you launch a handset like the S001 in Europe and the US too? It would almost certainly be a huge success.

    Well, we already have such a handset on the European market. The C905. It features almost everything S001 has, except mobile TV and the huge display. Well, mobile TV is pretty useless anywhere outside Japan and the display is just a matter of choice. C905 is already considered as too big phone by many European users and S001 is even bigger and heavier. Europeans preffer to buy smartphones with such dimensions and price.

    Yes, I obviously know about the C905 :) But come on, you can't compare its QVGA screen with the 480 x 854 pixels OLED one that S001 has. And 115 x 51 x 17.8 mm is not that big. It's almost like an iPhone, although thicker.

    I agree…i would love it if they sold it here in Canada as well!! I would definitely buy it right away!! ^o^

    I have one and I LOVE it. It rivals the iPhone (in my opinion) the only thing I WISH it had was Skype capabilities, it may, I just haven't figured it out yet as it's mostly all in Japanese.
