Sony Ericsson Aspen preview video

Sony-Ericsson-Aspen-a It was a few weeks ago now that we first saw the Sony Ericsson Aspen (aka Sony Ericsson Faith) in an official press release from Sony Ericsson. At the time I think there was perhaps more of a buzz around the fact that it had been announced with Windows Mobile 6.5.3 than the actual device itself but I could be wrong!

Personally I was quite interest in the hardware, there aren’t too many Windows Mobile devices with a fixed forward-facing QWERTY keyboard and there are even fewer to also have a touchscreen even if it is only QVGA.

As I’ve already mentioned, the Aspen has WinMo 6.5.3 and was the first to be announced with the latest incarnation of Windows Mobile and also the first to actually go on sale with the new OS. A few other handsets have since been announced with 6.5.3 but no other on sale as yet.

As you know, James was at MWC last week and not only was he able to have a look at the Aspen but he was also allowed to bring one home for us to review. I’m starting off here with a preview video which is in place of our normal unboxing video but as there is no proper box with this prototype unit I wonder if we can really call it an unboxing video!? In either case you can find the video below where I’ll show you around the device as well as booting up in to Windows Mobile and have an poke around with the user interface.
