Sony Ericsson today unveiled the T68i mobile phone and the CommuniCam MCA-20 digital camera accessory. With the camera snapped on to the phone, it is easy to take pictures and send them as an MMS-message to another phone, e-mail them to a PC, or store them in the phone’s extensive photo album. Sony Ericsson confirms its leadership in mobile imaging, and shipments of both products will begin immediately in Europe and Asia.

Mobile imaging will change the way people interact and certainly the way mobile phones are used. Mobile imaging is a hot topic in the industry and Sony Ericsson proves its leadership in this popular area with a range of color imaging products, such as the T68i and the CommuniCam.

The new T68i builds on the success of the T68, which has achieved global success since its launch last year. The T68i has a new look, it is the first MMS phone to hit the market, and the focus is on imaging. Many keep pictures of friends, family and pets in their wallet. Many store digital images on their computers. The T68i can replace both, since images can be saved in the phone’s photo album. The imaging possibilities of the T68i are further enhanced by inbuilt Bluetooth wireless technology, which makes it possible to transfer images to another phone, but also to connect wirelessly to headsets, PCs, or other Bluetooth-equipped peripherals. Naturally, it is also possible to download color images, cartoons, and icons from the Internet or other sources to the phone.

The new CommuniCam MCA-20 is a small digital mobile camera accessory, which is easy to use and easy to carry. Connected to the T68i it can be used to take full VGA resolution pictures that are sent from the phone as part of an MMS-message or as an e-mail. Pictures taken with the CommuniCam can also be used as background pictures on the display of the T68i, or stored in the camera or the phone. The camera can store up to 200 pictures, depending on size. The display of the T68i acts as a viewfinder for the camera. The camera can store 14 full VGA pictures or up to 200 pictures in QQQVGA format.

When meeting a person and entering their phone number into the T68i, it is fast and easy to snap on the CommuniCam MCA-20, take a picture and add it to their contact information. Next time that person calls, the picture will appear on the screen. Ordinary mobile phones show the number of the person who is calling you. The T68i can show a color picture of that person instead.

With MMS, multimedia messaging, a huge variety of content can be added to messages – quality images, animations, formatted text and recorded sound clips. For speed and comfort, a GPRS mobile phone, like the T68i, is an ideal Multimedia messaging tool. More MMS-capable phones will follow from Sony Ericsson during the year, and in 2003, MMS will be integrated across the product portfolio. Multimedia messaging, combined with imaging capabilities, provides fun-to-use applications for consumers, while at the same time these generate revenue for the operators. Coinciding with the launch of MMS services by operators, one of the main commercial services available will be to provide for easy download and sharing of the latest pictures and sounds.

The T68i and CommuniCam MCA20 will start shipping immediately.
