All about the new Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C902Sony Ericsson's new C702 Cyber-shot and C902 Cyber-shot deliver best-in class picture quality beyond just megapixels.  

Sony Ericsson today announced two high-performance additions to its popular Cyber-shot phone range with the launch of the C702 Cyber-shot and C902 Cyber-shot. The two phones, packed with the latest camera technology, make it effortless to take perfect pictures of those spontaneous moments – day or night, at a bar or the beach – and instantly share them with friends and family.

“The two new Cyber-shot phones that we have announced today share certain characteristics. Both phones place ease-of-use and best-in-class picture quality at the heart of their designs,” said Sven Totté, Head of Imaging Marketing at Sony Ericsson. “Yet both appeal to different audiences. One is engineered to let you take more pictures in more places and the other is designed to look as stunning as the pictures it takes.”
