Sony Ericsson C902
Sony Ericsson’s latest Cyber-shot phone has an impressive mix of imaging and phone functions.The C902 Cyber-shot™ phone is made for great pictures. The slide-out lens cover activates the 5-megapixel camera. Adjust settings via onscreen touch keys.People in focusIf you have people in your photo, activate Face detection.
Your C902 will automatically find and focus on a face.In the darkDon't let poor lighting stop you. For still pictures, the photo flash automatically fires when needed. The flash can be used in BestPic™ mode and for videos too.has a surprisingly small 2" 262K-color TFT display of QVGA resolution. When the display is off, it does look like at least a 2.2 incher, but with the lights on the reason for this size is obvious - there are eight touch sensitive camera keys that backlight in blue around the display. More about them is to come later on. As a camera-centric phone, Among them are face detection, image and video stabilizer, BestPic, auto-rotate, macro mode, photoflash LED, etc.
The camera itself is rather discrete, slumbering under a trademark sliding top. Once you slide it up, the camera is revealed and you are ready to shoot. The flimsy sliding mechanism (no spring assist or anything) in our beta version of the phone will certainly see improvements before the final version hits the shelves.With a full metal casing, the C902 feels quite pleasant in hand, the commendable 10.5 mm slimness going well with the hefty 107 g of weight. Glossy surfaces dominate the front, the rear is all matt.
The photoflash LED makes a compact and more efficient substitute for the xenon flash used in small digicams and cameraphones. The new photoflash LED is stated to produce approximately 25 lux/s. Its smaller size and twice less power consumption than standard xenon flash make it especially suitable for portable devices. It also doesn't need to recharge the way the xenon flash needs to after it has discharged when it fires.

The other new feature spotted in the settings menu is the TV-Out, which allows you to set the TV-out function to work in either PAL or NTSC mode - not really of importance if you have a multi-system TV set. We wonder if the TV-out cable will be included in the C902 retail package - that would be cool.
