The Sony Ericsson C902 is a very stylish, well-built mobile phone belonging to the Cybershot family. It looks and feels amazing – especially the touch sensitive buttons that light up. Also as it is only using a slightly updated version of the by now very familiar Sony Ericsson menu system it is so easy to navigate your way around the phone, even if you haven’t had a Sony before, you’ll be using this one in no time at all.
Sony Ericsson over the past couple of years have excelled in two particular phone aspects, one being music and the other stemming from the Cybershot range is their advances with camera phones. The C902 has a smooth camera slider action and even though it is a relatively small phone there are no problems or worries about catching the tips of your fingers over the lens as you’re taking a photo as with some other phones. The camera itself is 5.0 Megapixel with autofocus. Some attributes of the camera are face recognition, rapid burst picture capture whereby you can take 9 photos in quick succession and then chose the best and finally X-Pict story which allows you to set up any pics you like then put them in a story or slideshow.
In addition the music aspects and sound quality are very good too. Messaging can be a little tricky when you first get the phone, however once you’re used to the new keys the texts will be flying. When the text is actually written, you are able to select from a list of recently used contacts to send to, a nice addition which saves time from searching all the way through your phone’s contact list.
Overall the phone’s performance is excellent and its slim and simple design is very desirable. The C902 will be perfect for people that want a high quality mobile phone with a modern look and the capabilities of a high end digital camera. As mobile phones go, the C902 is right there at the top of the pile.

Simens has created the Gigaset Eco Visions project to explore new eco-friendly mobile phone designs. The first two phones from the Gigaset Eco Visions series are the Leaf and the Solar.
These eco phone will have OLED display for lower power consumption. They will be made of recyclable raw materials, such as eco-plastic and liquid wood. Solar energy will be their power source.
The Leaf has a unique natural design reminiscent of a leaf in spring. The eco plastics provide sensational haptics and substantial convenience. The invisible OLED display is embedded in a translucent lens encasement, giving the phone a futuristic touch.
The Solar, on the other hand is the high-end phone in the Eco Vision series. The Solar utilize the OLED touchpad technology that allows a function-depending key indication on the Solar’s transparent display, just like Motorola’s ModeShift.
There is another model called the Stone, that will be introduced later this year.
