Sebutlah dia Kurara. Boleh juga dipanggil dengan U5i. Tapi yang pasti, nama resmi yang akhirnya disandang olehnya adalah Sony Ericsson Vivaz™. Ya, akhirnya Sony Ericsson hari ini secara resmi mengumumkan keberadaan Vivaz™ melalui sebuah press release yang dilakukan di London. Tentunya tidak banyak kejutan berarti karena smartphone ini sudah diketahui oleh banyak orang sebelumnya. Bahkan kemarin, sehari sebelum pengumuman, spesifikasi lengkap dan gambar high resolution dari keempat variant warna yang tersedia, sudah bocor secara tidak sengaja(?) oleh rekanan promosi Sony Ericsson sendiri.

Sekarang saatnya mengulang kembali menuliskan secara lengkap spesifikasi dan berbagai hal terkait Sony Ericsson Vivaz™ secara resmi merujuk pada situs Sony Ericsson.

Vivaz™ Product Tour Video

  1. […] Pro adalah versi lain dari Sony Ericsson Vivaz™, dengan penambahan sebuah keyboard QWERTY pada bagian yang didesign berbentuk slider. Selain […]

  2. gan, tadi saya nemu tulisan komentar gitu, katanya Vivaz ini jelek. kualitasnya nggak sebagus iklan. bener nggak sih?
    bingung saya.. pengen ini, tapi pengen nunggu si X10 mini.. doh!

  3. JJ says:

    @saifulmuhajir: komentar di mana yang bilang Vivaz gak sebagus iklan? Yang aku tahu sih pernah ada tulisan seperti itu tapi untuk Satio, bukan Vivaz. Yang dimasalahin waktu itu adalah karena di iklan ada aplikasi Facebook sedangkan pada saat pertama kali beredar Satio di Indonesia belum ada aplikasi Facebook. Tapi sekarang udah beres masalahnya karena pihak SE udah ngeluarin update firmware baru untuk Satio yang berisi aplikasi Facebook.

    Beli dua-duanya aja, hehehe…

  4. haha.. ide bagus, beli dua-duanya. may be one day..
    umm.. oya, sekarang harga Vivaz masih 4jutaan ya?! atau udah turun? hehe..
    kalau di SE Center ada sampel yang bisa dilihat kan ya?!

  5. JJ says:

    @saifulmuhajir: Harga Vivaz sekarang kalau gak salah 4.1 juta, tapi bentar lagi mungkin turun pas nanti Vivaz Pro dirilis.
    Beberapa SE Center memang suka nyediain live unit yang bisa dicoba, tapi gak semua jenis ada. Biasanya sih di SE Center yang ada di mall-mall yang besar suka ada live unit produk terakhir.

    @Ikha: Vivaz Pro sekarang harga Rp 3,899,000
