Whilst at the Sony Ericsson stand we were particularly impressed with some of the ideas Sony Ericsson have had. The camera, as we mentioned in our earlier story, performs very well in low light. It’s called the “Exmor R” and ensures that low-light photos don’t always need a flash. They were also keen to tell us about the display – it’s right next to the front glass and their’s no air in between. The result is a high quality picture with vivid, clear images. The HDMI output was being used on all the screens
They’ve added a lot to Android and have a new pop-up prompt on the Sony Ericsson Xperia pro which appears when you slide the keyboard out. You merely type into the box and then decide what to do with it. Sony Ericsson have added lots of extra features across all these new phones including a much richer media experience with fast-loading album art, pictures and videos. The neo has a 3.7″ scratch-resistant 854×480 screen with the BRAVIA engine under the hood. It also has that HDMI output, WiFi, DLNA (for pushing videos, music and pictures to your TV), Bluetooth and all the usual Google services. There’s also an 8GB microSD card in the box and it runs a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU.
