Sony Ericsson Elm and Hazel – new GreenHeart phones
The handsets are made out of recycled plastics, they’re free from hazardous chemicals and come with E-manuals (thus being packaged in minimized packaging). The Hazel and Elm also feature a Walk Mate eco application, a green calculator and a low power consumption charger (called EP300 GreenHeart).
The first phone, Sony Ericsson Elm, is a candybar with a curved case. It will be available starting the first quarter of 2010, in two color versions (Metal Black and Pearly Rose).
The specs of Sony Ericsson Elm include: 2.2 inch QVGA display, HSDPA connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, Google Maps, “10 days free weather forecast with Accuweather”, “clear voice and intelligent volume adaptation”, social networking integration (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter), push email, 5MP autofocus camera with Led flash, 280MB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
The second phone, Sony Ericsson Hazel is a slider that has most of the features the Elm has. The main difference is that its QVGA display is bigger – 2.6 inches. The phone will be available from Q2 2010, in Superior Black and Passionate Rouge.
Both the Elm and Hazel are splash resistant and are offered together with the Stereo Portable Handsfree HPM-60J (also part of the GreenHeart family of products).
In addition to the two new phones, Sony Ericsson announced the Bluetooth Noise Shield Handsfree VH700, which features Intelligent Voice adaptation and will be available starting the second quarter of 2010.
