Don’t you just love official ‘oops’ leaks? I most certainly do, and today just happens to be a day housing one of these ‘oops’ leaks.
The Chinese mobile and gadgets website IT168 recently published a series of photos from an official Sony Ericsson press conference, and on a few of the photos appeared some unannounced phones – the M610, T707 and P3.
The T707 is the most interesting of the bunch, as it’ll get announced shortly. Its codename is Elle, and it’ll come in a variety of colour variants. We know of five variants, but there may be more. From the photo we can say that the phone will be a quad-band GSM / dual-band UMTS/HSPA (up to 7.2 Mbps) phone, and it measures 93 x 50 x 14 millimetres. It’ll weigh 98 grams. It will feature a 2.2-inch TFT display. It seems to come with a 1 GB Memory Stick Micro card, and it’ll be based on the OSE operating system by Enea, just like most of Sony Ericsson’s other feature phones. Its hardware platform seems to be the Ericsson EMP U330.
And then out of the blue comes a photo of the 2007 portfolio with mentionings of the M610 and P3. The picture of the Walkman phone is apparently P3 (not true – and a fake picture, too). Not only is it weird that they included these two phones in the presentation, but it is more weird that they even got the picture of the P3 wrong. Shame on you, Sony Ericsson, for mentioning cancelled phones…
