Sony Ericsson G502 leaked
Specs and an image of Sony Ericsson's newest phone, the G502, made it out a day early. The EDGE-enabled G502 features a 2-inch LCD with 320x240-pixel resolution. Software-wise, the G has the ability to display Google Maps for Mobile and supports Exchange ActiveSync for synchronizing Outlook contacts and e-mail. Sony Ericsson's NetFront browser can access the internet and download RSS feeds on the A2-based device. Unlike the company's G700 and G900 announced earlier this year, it doesn't have the 3G support, making do with three-band GSM.
The G502's 2-megapixel camera will have the ability to record movies or capture still images at up to 4x digital zoom. Internal memory is rated at 32MB, and externally expandable via Memory Stick Micro cards. Transferring images and other content can be accomplished via a USB 2.0 plug or wirelessly thanks to Bluetooth 2.0+ EDR.
Two color choices are expected: hazel or black.
The G502 is expected to launch by the end of June in selected markets, although nothing is yet official.
