What’s this, not a smartphone? You bet your left butt cheek it’s not. The Sony Ericsson Cedar is an almost dumbphone, but has an aesthetic, and price tag, that will appeal to a wide audience. It’s available in two colors (Black/Silver and Black/Red), and uses recycled plastics, a lower power charger, e-manual, waterborne paint and compact packaging; all part of SE’s GreenHeart initiative.
Feature wise were looking at a 2.2-inch screen, Bluetooth, FM radio, 3.5mm headphone jack, media player, 2 megapixel camera, Facebook/Twitter/etc access, 3G connectivity, a Web browser and up to 420 hours of standby time.
Price and launch? We don’t know, but we’re hearing it’s affordable.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
