Sony Ericsson has just announced their latest addition, the K630i which is a mid-range 3G handset with a wide range of features. The handset measures 103 x 47 x 15.5 mm (HxWxD) and it weighs in at 97 grams, all of which makes it quite a nice and pocketable phone. It comes in either what Sony Ericsson calles Quick Black or Havana Gold.
The K630i has a 2-inch display which can display 262,144 colours at a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. Not that impressive considering that more and more phones today features higher resolutions than this. It supports GSM/GPRS and EDGE at 900/1800 and 1900MHz as well as 3G (UMTS) and HSDPA at 2100MHz. It also has support for Bluetooth 2.0 and there's also a built in FM radio.
The rear mounted camera features a 2 Megapixel sensor but there's no auto focus or flash. The front facing camera allows for video calls and manages VGA resolution. A Memory Stick M2 slots allows for memory expansion, as the built in memory is only 32MB. The handset ships with a 256MB M2 card, although up to 4GB is supported.
The supplied headset allows for any normal headphones with a 3.5mm jack to be used in place of the ones that ships with the handset and the K630i also comes with a USB cable for easy file transfer from your computer. Sony Ericsson claims a talk time of up to 9 hours in GSM mode and 5 hours in 3G mode with a standby time of up to 300 hours. You should also be able to use it as an audio player for over 21h.
In related news, Sony Ericsson also launched a new Bluetooth speaker the MBS-100 which looks rather interesting and offers 5 hours of music streaming and then takes less than 5 hours to charge back up again. It's compatible with any device that supports A2DP Bluetooth profiles and it proved a not so powerful 1.5W of music power, but at 225g it's quite portable.
