Sony Ericsson to focus on Cyber-shot phones in the US – C905 confirmed
Rumors about the arrival of Sony Ericsson C905 in the US have been around since November 2008, and now it’s all confirmed.
Reuters reports that Sony Ericsson will put a serious effort to promote its Cyber-shot camera phones in the US, starting the second quarter of 2009.
In particular, SE will introduce the 8 Megapixel C905 slider to US customers.
Jon Mulder, Sony Ericsson’s head of product marketing for North America, is confident that the C905 can attract a considerable number of buyers: “We know that this device is going to be relevant to consumers in the second half.”
The Cyber-shot phone should be sold for $199 to $249 if a North American carrier decides to offer it with a 2-yr contract agreement. And that carrier is likely to be AT&T – since we saw a C905a with AT&T firmware some time ago.
The C905 will be the second 8MP camera phone launched in the US, after T-Mobile’s Samsung Memoir, which is currently sold for $249 (with a contract agreement for two years).
