Sony has been really a laggard for a while now. Sony Ericsson, which was once known to be the brand which brought novelty to the market, has been launching some really ordinary phones lately. The only phone worth mention in recent times has been the Satio. However, Sony definitely seems to up the pace with the new Sony Ericsson Vivaz.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz runs on the S 60 v5 platform, similar to the Satio. The main aim behind this phone seems to be sharing of high quality images and video with friends and family. This is pretty evident from the stunning 3.2 inch TFT touchscreen with a 360 x 640 resolution, supporting 16 million colors. The camera is a beauty with 8 MP, auto focus, smile and face detection technology. A powerful LED flash enables users to take crisp pictures even in dim light.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is a masterpiece with HD video recording at 1280 x 720 resolutions. It supports internet connectivity with download speeds upto 10.2 Mbps. Connectivity is decent with standard Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP and a mini-USB slot for connecting to a computer.

Google is known to be a giant killer – from battling Microsoft in the search domain and Yahoo in the email markets. Google’s latest target seems to be the much envied iPhone from Apple. It has been a long wait for the iPhone killer from Google which has been a hot topic for discussion for technocrats all over the world. Finally it’s here – The HTC Google Nexus One.
At first look, the HTC Google Nexus One is pretty similar to the latest full touch screen phones on offer today. The touch interface and the way the entire screen is planned reminds one of the iPhone at first sight, but apart from looks, Google have managed to up the bar on many other features.
The first point worth mention is the 1 Ghz Snapdragon CPU, which makes it twice as fast as any other smartphone out there. However, only time can tell, if the battery technology existing today, is capable of handling such processors. The Android OS is excellent with its multi-tasking, “never close an app” approach, just perfect for phones of this kind. The 4 GB memory is a tad lower compared to the iPhone, but the SD card expandable slot with support up to 32 GB is a wonderful add-on, especially considering the falling prices of these cards.
The camera on the HTC Google Nexus One is 5 MP, auto-focus with LED flash and a very decent lens.

Many gadget enthusiasts have been waiting patiently for the new Nokia N97 to finally make its appearance on store shelves. However, if you’re not a “Gadget Geek”, then you’re probably wondering what all the fuss is about with a new cell phone; I mean it’s just a phone, right? If that is what you are thinking, then read on and you will see what all the excitement is about! The Nokia N97 is built upon the previously released Nokia 5800 series phone that has been widely renowned by critics. Some parts of the N97 have remained unchanged from the 5800 series phone, such as the camera. Fortunately for N97 enthusiasts, the Nokia 5800 was already packing one of the leading cell phone cameras on the market, so this new phone doesn’t lose much in that area! You can even use the built in camera as a web cam which Nokia knows you internet junkies will love.
The slider portion of the phone is a great improvement over the 5800, as the slider can tilt to a 35 degree angle. The Nokia N97 is one of the first phones on the market that offers this, and all of you “texters” and web surfers will enjoy that added design! Additionally, the plastic housing for the touchscreen isn’t recessed, so it’s much easier to use your fingers instead of a stylus. The unit is rugged too! In fact, even though the whole unit is made completely of velvet plastic, it feels just as sturdy as if it were made of metal, and the slider screen doesn’t wiggle or sway even after multiple closings and openings.
The one major improvement to this model is what it is capable of doing as soon as you unpack it. All of those features on the 5800 that took multiple separate downloads, set-ups and configurations, come pre-installed and ready to go with the N97. The N97 also is capable of running multiple widgets, which trendy Web 2.0 internet users will find very inviting.
