Samsung Blue Earth S7550 Preview


Phonearena has a great preview of the upcoming Samsung Blue Earth. The Samsung Blue Earth S7550  is created with environmental protection in mind. The phone body and packaging are both made from recycled materials and the device features a solar panel that extends its battery life. Unlike most similar devices, this is not all about it. The phone features a 3-inch touch sensitive screen, TouchWiz interface and a set of quite decent functions to make it an appealing handset for the wide public.

Sony Ericsson W205 unboxing video

Recently Sony Ericsson added to their range of Walkman branded handsets with the launch of the entry-level W205. The W205 is a small and light handset with sliding screen that reveals a basic numeric keypad.

While the Sony Ericsson W205 is intended to be entry-level, which becomes apparent when you look at the 1.2" Display and 1.3MP camera, but there are some features that help to elevate its status a little. For example, there’s the build in FM Radio with RDS and the ability to record the FM radio and to capture video. There’s also Mini-opera web browser preinstalled but web browsing on that 128×160 pixel display could be interesting.

If you want to use this handset for music you definitely need to invest in a M2 micro memory card as there’s only 5MB of built in memory and card support is only 2GB.

Have a look at the video below while we finish off the review.
