By: Bradley Ben

Sony Ericsson has made quite a reputation for themselves with their camera centric K series mobile phones. Uncompromising camera features has been a treadmark of the K series. When the first K series mobile phone with 3G technology was released, expectations were obviously high. The Sony Ericsson K800i has not only delivered what was expected, but exceeded many of them. Especially, after the brand name 'Cyber Shot' was incorporated to the Sony Ericsson K800i, anyone would expect the Sony Ericsson K800i to be a mobile phone incarnation of the digital camera.

The Sony Ericsson K800i is a simple candy bar mobile phone fitted with a 262k coloured TFT screen and a tactile keypad. The handset weighs 115 grams and feels very robust with its multi-layered plastic casing. The Cyber Shot handset is presently available in Velvet Black and Allure Brown. A lens cover protects the camera lens of the Sony Ericsson K800i as well as serves as the camera activation key. Just slide the lens cover and you're ready to shoot.

Primary built in camera of the Sony Ericsson K800i is a massive 3.2 megapixel module. At the time of its release, the Sony Ericsson K800i was the highest resolution camera phone. Armed with all necessary imaging tools like digital zoom, autofocus and flash, the Sony Ericsson K800i clicks a great picture everytime you press the click. Unwilling to compromise, its manufacturers have opted for a full fledged Xenon flash instead of cheap LED flash. Loaded with amazing tools like 'BestPic' - a feature that captures nine photos in a row - the Sony Ericsson K800i is a serious threat to traditional digital camera.

Capabilities of this camera phone is not just limited to high quality imaging. This phone gives you high speed data connectivity in 3G network, takes part in video calls, supports triband GSM mobile networks, features GPRS technology with built in web browser, Bluetooth Infrared and USB connectivity, FM Radio and a media player comparable with a Walkman player.
