Sony Ericsson, a joint venture between the Japanese electronics giant and the Swedish telecommunications major has always been known to Produce phones with premium design, quality cameras, and unique form factor ideas. The company started out with the launch of its first device, the Sony Ericsson T68i in the holiday season of 2001. The phone was created for the masses and featured a colored screen and a stylish keypad with a navigation key. At the same time, Sony Ericsson also launched its basic T100 models that stood out with their unique design and hypnotic Blue screen. Soon people started taking notice of Sony Ericsson phones, and in 2003, the company introduced the T610, which sported a mesmerizing combination of black and silver that redefined ‘premium.' The phone had a 65K color display that had a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. The T610 boasted a decent quality camera that captured images with a 288 x 352 pixel resolution. The phone also had 2MB built in memory.
Sony mobile phones had just scratched the surface with this lovely combination of superior design and camera. In 2005, the company released the Sony Ericsson K750i, a groundbreaking device with a 2MP camera with auto focus. Now, the possibility of phones coming with all the functionalities of digital cameras one day was made possible. The same year, the company followed up by launching the music oriented Sony Ericsson W800i, which featured Walkman technology, and came bundled with a 512MB memory card and premium in ear headphones. This phone was succeeded by the Sony Ericsson K790i ‘Kamera phone’ that introduced Sony’s Cyber shot brand in the market. It also came with an amazing 2inch TFT display with QVGA resolution.
By 2010, Sony Ericsson phones adopted Android, with Xperia X10 becoming the first of Sony phones to be powered by Google’s OS. Variants of X10 like the Xperia Mini series were launched in the same year. The next couple of years saw the release of multiple devices such as Xperia Arc, Xperia Neo, Xperia Pro, and Xperia Play, the first PlayStation Certified Android smartphone. In 2012, Sony acquired Ericsson and in the following years launched a range of touch enabled Xperia mobile devices with advanced cameras and gorgeous designs in line with previous Sony phones. The latest Sony mobile phones such as those from the Xperia Z series not just incorporate state of the art cameras and appealing designs, but also are resistant to the elements.
