Review: Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

sony-vivaz-pro-4

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is a little different. Even though it is largely sold as a “feature phone” rather than a smartphone, it has real smartphone brains under the hood with its Symbian S60 5th edition operating system. Does this make it a really good value for people who want web connectivity and smartphone-like functionality at a “dumbphone”-like price point? You’ll soon find out.

I was able to enjoy some brief hands-on time with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 during CES in January. At first glance, it’s quite clear that the X10 is in direct competition with devices like the Apple iPhone 3GS, it’s big touchscreen display and lack of physical keyboard screams “touch me.” While it does make use of a rather vanilla build of Google Android (1.6) for its core operating system, it’s equipped with two additional user interface features: Mediascape and Timescape. The former is used to manage your pictures, music, and so on, whereas the latter gathers up your social networking and messaging things.
