Navigate Your Way to a New Phone

By: John Gray

Sony Ericsson has this week announced another new mobile to add to their collection, this time it is the turn of a clamshell phone. Now clamshell or flip phones seem to have become a little bit scarce these days as slide phones have become flavour of the moment.

The Sony Ericsson Z780, is an upgraded version of the recently announced Z770, with one key added bonus. The main selling point of the Z780 is the integrated GPS which will be ideal for those who travel a lot, and you will also have access to the latest version of Google Maps for Mobile. Google Maps for Mobile can show you where the nearest coffee shop is and then tell you how to get there by determining where you are and providing the best directions.

The mobile has a 2 megapixel camera - which to be honest is slightly disappointing given what Sony Ericsson can do. The Z780 also comes with the typical MP3 player and FM radio, with an internal memory of 35MB, which can be expanded by M2 cards, it should do quite well to hold your music, videos and photos.

The Sony Ericsson Z780 is also 3.5G which means you have HSDPA for fast downloads and video calling. There is a web browser, email client and a blogging tool - which should come in useful for people of the social networking generation.

The Sony Ericsson Z780 should be due for release over the next couple of months, so if you are looking for a stylish flip phone that has a fast data connection and GPS installed this could be your next mobile phone.
