Sony CyberShot Phone Leak

Sony-Ericsson's CyberShot-labeled phones have commonly targeted more dedicated phone buyers, but this should soon change with a new model in development, according to a member of the Sony-Ericsson Central online community. The forum contributor recently posted photos (since removed from the site) that show an early version of the as-yet unnamed phone that reveal a move towards more less expensive equipment while still offering better performance than many recent cameraphones. In contrast to the 3.2-megapixel K790, the upcoming device uses only a 2-megapixel sensor; nevertheless, it maintains an auto-focusing optical zoom that should keep subjects focused without losing quality. Also exposed in the photos are dedicated CyberShot buttons very similar to the Walkman buttons of the W810i, providing quicker access to the camera functions than would be possible through the menu system. The Sony-Ericsson phone is most likely to ship in early 2007; the remaining photos are available after the jump.
