Mobile World Congress sering dijadikan sebagai salah satu ajang bagi banyak perusahaan yang bergerak di industri mobile untuk menampilkan karya-karya terbaiknya.

Untuk tahun 2009 ini, pada event Mobile World Congress yang akan diselenggarakan di Barcelona pada tanggal 16-19 Februari 2009, dikabarkan bahwa Sony Ericsson akan menampilkan sedikitnya 5 buah handphone baru, bahkan bisa jadi akan ada 7 handphone baru.

Apa saja?

Yang sudah beredar gambar beserta spesifikasinya ada 4, yaitu : W395 (Yao), C901 (Filippa), C903 (Frances), dan Hikaru (belum ada index). Tiga lainnya masih berupa rumor dan hanya ada code name, yaitu : penerus X1, Elle, dan Frida.

W395 (Yao)

W395 adalah versi Walkman dari F305. Design dan spesifikasinya tidak jauh berbeda dari F305, tentu saja dengan penambahan fitur khas Walkman. Beberapa fitur W395 antara lain: layar 256 ribu warna dengan resolusi 176×220 pixel dan kamera 2 Megapixel.

W395 akan diumumkan tanggal 15 Februari dengan jadwal rilis sekitar bulan April 2009.

C901 (Filippa)

C901 adalah handphone Cyber-shot 5 Megapixel dengan Xenon Flash yang berbentuk candybar tipis. Filippa got name! Fitur-fitur yang dimiliki oleh C901 kemungkinan besar akan sama persis dengan C902 kecuali penambahan Xenon dan Smile Shutter yang absen di C902.

C901 akan dirilis dalam 3 warna berbeda, yaitu Noble Black, Sincere Silver dan Precious Peach. Akan diumumkan tanggal 15 Februari, C901 kemungkinan sudah akan tersedia mulai awal April 2009.

C903 (Frances)

C903 adalah Cyber-shot dengan kamera 5 Megapixel berbentuk slider. Beberapa fitur yang akan dimiliki antara lain adalah: layar berukuran 2.4 inci dengan resolusi 320×240 pixel, active lens cover (seperti yang ada pada digital camera Sony DSC-T2). Tentu saja teknologi Cyber-shot mutakhir seperti PhotoFix, Face Detection, dan Smile Shutter akan bisa ditemui pada C903. Dan jangan lupa, C903 akan merupakan Cyber-shot 5 Megapixel pertama yang memiliki fitur GPS terintegrasi dengan aGPS. Kita harapkan juga mudah-mudahn WiFi akan dimiliki oleh C903.

Akan diumumkan bersamaan dengan W395 dan C901 pada tanggal 15 Februari, C903 memiliki jadwal rilis setelah C901, yaitu sekitar akhir kuartal jedua tahun 2009.

Hikaru

Hikaru, sebuah nama yang ditunggu-tunggu sejak lama. Rumor tentang Hikaru sudah muncul sejak awal tahun lalu. Semula dikabarkan akan menjadi sebuah smartphone flagship pengganti seri P (yang akhirnya ternyata bukan karena seri P digantikan oleh seri X dengan handphone pertama Xperia X1).

Akhirnya gambar dan spesifikasi Hikaru muncul juga di beberapa situs seperti esato, SEMC Blog, dan gsmarena:

  • Walkman Phone berbentuk slider dengan metal casing
  • Layar berukuran 2.6″ inci
  • Kamera 8.1 megapixel dengan autofocus dan face detection
  • Memory internal 8 GB
  • Bright Photo Flash LED
  • Video recording dengan resolusi QVGA @30 fps
  • Walkman 4.0 software dengan “Clear Audio” dan “PHF” Technology
  • Extra music keys (seperti yang ada di W902)
  • 3.5 mm audio jack di bagian atas dan fast port di samping
  • Stereo speakers di bagian atas dan bawah (mungkin seperti yang ada di W595)
  • WLAN/WiFi
  • Extra new gadgets include

Hikaru akan diumumkan tanggal 15 Februari dan dijadwalkan untuk dirilis sekitar akhir kuartal kedua tahun ini (mungkin sekitar bulan Juni 2009).

Tunggu kabar selanjutnya tentang penerus X1, Elle, dan Frida…

Sony Ericsson makes its move with a brand new way to experience games on your mobile

17 June 2008
The new Sony Ericsson F305 with Motion Gaming puts ‘fun and entertainment’ at the heart of the mobile phone. In addition to horizontal gameplay and dedicated gaming controls – to let you control the action the way you are used to – the F305 lets the user control the action with a swing or a swipe of the phone.

Singapore, 17 June 2008 – Today’s announcement sees Sony Ericsson putting gaming at the heart of its latest phone release. Targeted firmly at a youth audience, the F305 with Motion Gaming lets users control games with the flick of a wrist or the swing of an arm, and then see the results straightaway on the screen. Using advanced motion sensor technology, the phone can, for example, follow your actions to imitate bowling or casting a fishing line.

With the F305 your favourite game is only one-click away. Enjoy the full gaming experience with stereo speakers, which also come in handy for sharing the latest track on the media player. Add a 2.0” screen into this pocket-sized slider phone and the F305 takes playing games on your mobile to a whole new level.

“Gaming is no longer something you do on your own. It’s about having fun with your friends and interacting with the game” says Sven Totté, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Ericsson. “We have used motion sensor technology before in our phones and integrating it into gameplay is a natural progression.”

To complement the F305 there is also now a handy new accessory available for the serious gamer. Although the F305 gives you up to 8 hours of gameplay, there is always now a back-up with the Power Pack CPP-100. Attach it to your keyring and when you need it, simply plug it into the phone to receive an instant battery power boost.

The F305 is about more than just gaming. Slide it open and find it packed with the latest Sony Ericsson features. Never miss a fun or unexpected moment with the phones 2.0 megapixel camera. Share your photos or music with friends via Bluetooth™ or Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™). It will also be possible to change the look of your phone with Style-up™ covers – two covers to choose from in box.

Setelah S302, Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog lagi-lagi memberikan bocoran mengenai handphone baru yang akan diumumkan pada tanggal 17 Juni 2008. Bocoran kali ini kebetulan masih tentang seri baru lagi dari jajaran produk Sony Ericsson, yaitu sebuah handphone seri “F” yang memiliki index F305.

Dengan mengacu pada Sistem Penamaan Baru Sony Ericsson, seri F adalah seri khusus Fun & Gaming. Handphone pertama dari seri ini, yaitu F305, ditujukan untuk pasar menengah ke bawah.

Berikut informasi tentang Sony Ericsson F305 dari sumber di atas :

Sony Ericsson F305 is for Fun & Games

The Sony Ericsson F305 is Sony Ericsson’s first Motion Gaming-enabled phone. Or well, no, that’s actually not true, but it’s the first to go by that name in particular. It’s a quad-band GSM phone with support for EDGE network speeds.

This low/mid-level phone sports some rather cool gaming features. The three pre-loaded games – Bowling, Bass fishing & Jockey – will enable you to use movements to play the game. Say, you load up the bowling game – how do you play it? Simply imitate the movement of the bowling ball throw with the F305, and you’ll be playing the game. Simple, isn’t it? It’s a bit like the concept behind Nintendo Wii, although I find it hard to believe this will work just as great as the Wii does. Other than the special gaming features, the F305 offers a set of PlayStation-like gaming keys just above the display, as well as a shortcut key to your games. If you’re in the middle of a game, but the battery is running low (meaning you’ve played almost 8 hours!), you can quickly plug in the battery Power Pack CCP-100 (extra accessory), and you can play for hours again. That’s actually a rather clever accessory, and I hope it’ll be available for other phones, although there’s a chance that won’t happen.

F305 features loud stereo speakers on the back of it, making your gaming experience even better. If you feel like challenging a friend of yours in a match, you can do this via Bluetooth on some games.

F305 has got a decent music player capable of playing the most standard audio compression codecs, including the über-compressed eAAC+ codec. The phone memory is a bit limited though at only 10 megabytes, so you’ll have to expand the memory with a Memory Stick Micro card. Your music can then be transfered via a USB connection. You can stream your music wireless in stereo, as the phone features the Bluetooth A2DP profile. You can also have a listen to the radio with the built-in FM radio, and recognize the music playing with TrackID.

The display on the front of this Polar White or Mystic Black phone is a 2-inch large TFT display with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels, and up to 262.144 colours. While the resolution isn’t exactly excellent, it’ll make the rendering of 3D games quicker, and more games are available for phones of this screen resolution.

The F305 measures a good 96 x 47 x 14.6 millimetres, and weighs in at just 97.5 grams, making it a bit heavier than it actually looks. F305 will be out in selected markets in Q3 this year. We expect the price tag to be relatively low, considering this is a low/mid-end phone.

The F305 will be officially announced on Tuesday 17th.

Berikut lebih lengkap tentang S302, F305, HBH-PV715, HBH-PV720, dan HBH-PV740 :

Sony Ericsson S302 For Your Snapshots

We told you about the Snapshot series quite some time ago in a post about the new nomenclature of Sony Ericsson phone names, and today we’ll be unveiling Sony Ericsson’s first phone in this series – it’s called the Sony Ericsson S302 Snapshot.

The S302 Snapshot is a cheap camera-enabled quadband GSM phone with further support for EDGE networks. It’ll be available in Europe (S302) and China (S302c).

The S302 Snapshot sports a fair 2 mega pixel camera with fixed focus, meaning your shots won’t get past the snapshot-level, which is basically expectable from a product with that as its surname. It does, however, feature the more advanced camera interface from earlier Sony Ericsson phones, and considering it’s a low/mid-end solution, that’s not half bad. Further more, it’s got a photo light and it features PhotoFix as well, if you decide to use that.

Your favourite moments can be recorded on video, although it won’t be in that great quality, and the internal memory of only 20 megabytes is also somewhat of a hindrance if you had plans about holding your entire photo album on it. It is, however, expandable with a Memory Stick Micro card.

Photos and videos can be easily transfered via either Bluetooth 2.0 or USB 2.0 (notice the 2’s, did you?). If you don’t want to use either, you can post both your images on a blog, or print them directly with the built-in PictBridge support.

Other features worth mentioning are A2DP-support, media player, support for various audio codecs, PlayNow, TrackID, a built-in FM radio and the Access NetFront xHTML web browser.

The S302 Snapshot measures 101 x 46 x 11 (12) millimetres, and weighs a mere 79 grams, making it quite light. Its display is a 2-inch TFT-display with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. The battery life is set to 7 hours of talk or 300 hours of standby.

The phone will be available in early Q4 this year, and announced on the 17th. It’ll come in Thunder Grey and Crystal Blue colour trimmings. Its price is yet unknown, but it’ll be quite low.

HBH-PV715, HBH-PV720, HBH-PV740 Bluetooth headsets

Sony Ericsson – the brains behind Bluetooth, however self-centered that may sound – is planning to announce three awesome-looking Bluetooth headsets on the 17th this month. These three all offer superior battery life and – in my opinion – look very slick.

They’ve all got some features in common. These are up to 800 hours of battery life in standby mode (that’s over a month of battery life!) or up to 11 hours of talk, auto-pairing, digital noise reduction (DSP), auto volume-leveling, removable ear-hooks, as well as Bluetooth 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rates (EDR) for a faster and more stable connection.

HBH-PV715 seems to be the cheapest of the three, and is – once again, in my opinion – the better looking of the bunch as well. It’ll come in either the pictured white trimming or a black one.

HBH-PV720 is the headset for the more sophisicated and fashionable of us. You can personalize its look with StyleUp covers, and it comes with a pouch and a silver necklace.

HBH-PV740 is the professional headset for the business man or woman. It’s the only one of the headsets to feature a status display, and it’s the only one to come with a headset desk stand and USB charger. Apart from that, you also get the silver necklace with the HBH-PV740.

No word on availablity or price on these ones, although the price will probably be in the range of £60 – £100.

Nantikan pengumuman resminya tanggal 17 Juni 2008 nanti.
