#CTIA09: Sony Ericsson Maria Sharapova Phone, Sans Maria

Upon first arriving at CTIA I sprinted over to Ericsson’s booth, hoping to get a glimpse of Maria Sharapova showing off her brand new phone just recently announced. Much to my chagrin however,  there was no Maria. I guess I just barely missed her, or so I will just assume.

At least she left us a with a new phone to look at. This particular phone is less affectionately known as the Sony Ericsson T707.

A couple features unique to the T707 include a gesture control — This enables you to simply wave your hand over your phone and it will direct the call to voicemail — and “unique pulsation notifications”. The notification offers several different colors to assign to contacts or friends, so when they call you there will be a little ring that comes up as a certain color, typically the one that you assigned to that contact.


Here is a laundry list of some of the T707’s qualities:

  • 2.2 inch TFT internal display with 240 x 320 pixels and 262K colors
  • Quad band GSM connectivity
  • UMTS/HSDPA 2100 connectivity (T707)
  • UMTS/HSDPA 850/1900/2100 connectivity (T707a – North America will probably get this)
  • Google Maps
  • NetFront HTML browser
  • Email, Exchange ActiveSync
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
  • YouTube access
  • Media Player
  • FM radio with RDS
  • 3.2 MP camera with video recording and geotagging
  • 100MB internal memory
  • Memory Stick Micro card support, up to 16GB
  • 93 x 50 x 14.1 mm (3.7 x 2.0 x 0.6 inches)
  • 95 grams (3.4 ounces)
