Sony Ericsson Vivaz unboxing video

Vivaz_Front The Vivaz was one of five new handsets announced by Sony Ericsson at MWC last month and is the first of the five to make it to market. This is the one without the sliding QWERTY keyboard, it’s ‘bigger’ brother the Vivaz Pro is due to launch soon. Despite having a sliding QWERTY mechanism the Vivaz Pro is just 2mm thicker than the Vivaz.

The Vivaz is a good looking slim handset and despite its having a reasonably large 3.2″ glass touchscreen the handset weighs just 97 grams which is pretty remarkable, first time I held one of these I thought it was a dummy unit until I turned it on, it really is that light!

The other feature that the Vivaz boasts is that the 8.1 megapixel camera can be used to record 720P HD video at 24fps and is the thinnest camera phone to be able to record HD video.

So we managed to get our hands on the Vivaz over the weekend, busy times with the Legend too, and we’re starting our review this week. As is now customary, we have an unboxing video for you below. I’m keeping this one brief as we’ve had a few demo videos of the Vivaz in action that James recorded at MWC and had the nice people at Sony Ericsson do the demo’s for him. So I’m limiting this one to more of a classic unboxing, as I believe that we are the first to see the retail package, than delving in to the OS. We’ll save the full tour for after the review!
