At CTIA we caught a few other phones at the Sony Ericsson booth that aren't in our Sony Ericsson line show. The Sony Ericsson Z550 is a flip phone with a vertically oriented external display (quite the trend right now). It sports a flip phone design, a form factor the company is becoming more comfortable with, and is available in sterling black or pearl copper. Features are mostly midrange and include a 1.3-megapixel camera, a memory card slot, a music player, a speakerphone, and an FM radio. As an tri-band (GSM 850/1800/1900), the Z550 is available in North America.
We also spied the very cool Sony Ericsson K810 Cybershot. As an offshoot to the K800 Cybershot, the K810 offers all the usual Cybershot goodies such as a 3.2-megepixel camera, a lens cover, a Xenon flash with red eye reduction, and a new image optimization system you can use to fix exposure and adjust the contrast after you take your shot. You can save photos to the K810's memory card slot or upload them to a blog directly from the phone. Yet the coolest camera feature is a series of buttons on the left side of the keypad that allow you to change options like the image resolution and the self-timer without using the onscreen menus.
Other features include a music and video player, a TrackID for identifying unfamiliar songs, an FM receiver, stereo Bluetooth, and an infrared port. It runs on the GSM 900/1800/1900 bands but it doesn't supports 3G networks. And it won't be widely available in North America.
