‘Simple sophistication’ sums up the Sony Ericsson T250, announced today. This entry-level handset shaped in the conventional candy-bar form-factor features a VGA camera, WAP 1.2.1, polyphonic ringtones, FM radio, infrared and a 1.7" 65K color TFT display with a 128 x 160 pixels resolution. Sony Ericsson T250 will be available in selected markets from Q3 2007.
“Now you can have quality design and finish in a phone without the high-end price tag,” says Steve Walker, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Ericsson. “We realise that some people want just a straightforward phone, but we don’t feel that this should equate to straightforward design. Although technically the new T250 focuses on doing just the basics well, its advanced design clearly resembles the more premium T650.”
Of course, the T250 is not only about style. For easy communication the T250 has a speakerphone that lets you share your call with others in the room, predictive text input for fast text and picture messaging, and an in-phone calendar that comes in handy for noting key dates or appointments.
Based on consumer feedback, an built-in FM Radio is included on the T250 for music and news around the clock. The T250 kit includes a stereo handsfree headset. To complete the picture, an on-board camera allows you to capture your favourite moments, share them with your friends, or save them in the phone’s memory as a pocket photo album.
With a colour choice of Black or Silver, it’s difficult to determine which is the more elegant. Whichever you choose, though, be sure that the T250 will get you noticed.
