Sony Ericsson’s latest handset called ‘Vivaz’ has landed on the Play website with a pre-order price of just £349.99 and a launch date of 29th March 2010
The reason I say ‘just’ £349.99 is because what other Symbian powered smartphone with 8 megapixel camera, GPS, HSDPA and 720p video recording can be purchased for this same price?. In fact only the large Samsung i8910 has HD Video recording but a lower 5 megapixel camera and a price nearly £100 more than the Vivaz.
The Vivaz is expected to have a large amount of coverage at this years Mobile World Congress which kicks off next month in Barcelona.
Although the Vivaz lacks the 12 megapixel camera and Xenon flash that the Satio had, Sony are betting on the lower price, better video recording and sleeker design to help these fly off the shelves.
I am already in line for a Black or Blue one once they come out!
