Updating sony ericsson k800i
Fast forward a few months, mobile users in the US have quite a few choices when it comes to mobile phones with high-end digital cameras (2 megapixels or greater).
The Samsung a990 offered by Verizon and the Nokia N80 and N73 sold either direct from Nokia’s web site or through importers have made their ways onto US shores.
The keys are bit too narrow for users with large thumbs to press comfortably.
The Sony Ericsson K800i has reasonable number of keys and controls on its sides: the music play/stop button lives on the left side with the Memory Stick Micro (M2) slot right below it while the volume up and down buttons (also used for camera digital zooming), the camera launch/shutter button and the IR window live on the right side of the phone.
After all I that, I ended up with a debranded phone with the newest OS on there, which is great.The thumb stick is raised a bit to give you better control ability.The left and right selection keys and the Back key as well as Clear key flank the thumb stick.You can download the theme here (149kb), along with Apple spinny screen saver I knocked up. The quality of this camera phone is just excellent. Here’s a picture of it in the wild: The k800i currently isn’t supported by i Sync, but for a couple of quid, you can get the i Sync 2.3 plugin from here.
