Japanese-Swedish mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson has started shipping out one of the latest devices it unveiled to the world during the ongoing year, namely the Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro. Powered by the Symbian operating system, the handset has arrived in select markets, and should soon become available for purchase via various operators and retailers around the world.
was announced as the successor of another recently unveiled handset from the company, namely the Sony Ericsson Vivaz. Both devices are powered by the same operating system, just that the pro version comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard. Another important difference between the two is the photo snapper, which boasts a 5.1-megapixel resolution on the Vivaz pro, and goes all the way up to 8-megapixel on the Vivaz.
Here's what a recent post
on Sony Ericsson's blog notes: “Vivaz has been shipped in large volumes already. Some of the top reasons from consumers why they desire the phone
is the superior HD video recording as well as the unique Human Curvature design. It feels very pleasant to be able to extend the Vivaz family with Vivaz pro with a full slide-out qwerty keyboard. I use the Vivaz pro as my main phone primarily for the convenience when it comes to messaging (my sms, email, facebook etc), yet, being a Cyber-shot fan, I could never compromise on the camera.”
Both devices come to the market with microSD memory card slots with support for up to 32GB of additional storage space, enabling users to carry along with them a great deal of music, videos, photos and more. However, while Vivaz
is already available for purchase in various markets around the globe, it still remains to be seen when the second Symbian S60 5th Edition OS-based device the company launched this year is put on sale. Keep an eye on this space for more info on the matter.
