#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)

- Google Maps
- NetFront HTML browser
- Email, Exchange ActiveSync
- Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
