Sony-Ericsson K618: the blog phone

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Wed August 9, 2006

K618 Blog Phone

In many senses, the K618 reflects the current wave of feature-rich Sony-Ericsson phones. It has a 2 megapixel camera with video recording, which is appreciated but no longer unique. Bluetooth EDR will be increasingly common in phones towards the end of this year. A 1.7" LCD is comfortable but not unheard of. What differentiates the K618 from most other phones is its software: it includes a program called Mobile Blogger that lets users post photos directly to their blogs. While the concept of a moblog (mobile phone blog) isn't new, most companies are more interested in music and are perhaps ignoring the MySpace generation's continued emphasis on blogs. You should be able to buy one with an included 256 MB Memory Stick Duo by the end of the month in "select markets." Full photo after the jump.
