REVIEW: Sony Ericsson Elm

April 10th, 2010 - 11:23 pm by Wajiha H.
This is a different set as in itís a bit peculiar in its own way. And it will be a bit difficult for Sony Ericsson El to find its niche in a market consumed with smartphones. But experts are of the view that they will cater to a different market altogether so yes, there will be people willing to buy them. The Elm is different because it is not equipped with those high-tech specs and it is a pioneer because itís not cheap just to get the sales graph high.
Key features are a 2.2" 256K-color TFT screen, 240 x 320 pixels, Quad-band GSM support, Dual-band 3G with 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 2Mbps HSUPA, 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash; geotagging, face detection; VGA@30fps video recording, Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS; Trial version of Wisepilot navigation software, Wi-Fi with DLNA, FM radio with RDS, Stereo Bluetooth 2.1, microSD card slot, 280 MB internal memory, Eco-friendly package and materials, Social networking integration, widget enhanced interface, NetFront v3.5 web browser with full Flash support, Splash-resistant body, Noise cancellation, Excellent audio quality.

Then the main disadvantages are absence of a standard USB port, No bundled data cable or memory card, No 3.5mm audio jack, Kinda short Wi-Fi receiver range, No DivX/XviD video support, No document viewer, No xenon flash, No camera lens cover, Feeble loudspeaker, No video streaming over Wi-Fi etc.

There is an advance social networking integration which will perhaps make up for all the little disadvantages that the handset might have. The solid battery life, splash-resistant and ergonomically curved body do add to Elmís appeal too.
Due to its features the Elm is sure to grab a lot of attention.
