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).
