It's that time of year... when handset rumours become fact and grainy leaked pictures turn into super-glossy hi-res snaps.
Sony Ericsson has officially announced their latest mid-range handsets, the C903 camera-phone and W395 Walkman phone, both of which made the internet rounds back in January.
The five-megapixel C903 has the usual suite of camera apps, including Smile Shutter to automatically pick out ‘natural' smiles and Face Detection which focuses on the people (rather than any extraneous, closer objects) in the shot. The phone also features an auto-rotating 2.4-inch display, a TV out port, A-GPS, media player with Mega Bass, and Bluetooth and 3G connectivity.
The W395 is the latest in SE's excellent line of Walkman phones, boasting its trademark quality bass, Walkman music player with equalizer and Sony E's PlayNow music subscription service. It ships with a 1GB memory stick for its Micro slot, expandable to 16GB. No 3.5mm audio jack though, which detracts a little from a dedicated music phone.
Both handsets are targeted firmly at the mid-range market, with pleasingly mid-range price tags. The C903 is available from Q2, the W395 from Q1.
