Today Sony Ericsson announced the full specifications of the XPERIA Pureness handset, their first go at the high-end all-about-design devices market. Coming with a simplistic design and the typical for the class beautiful craftsmanship, feature-wise the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness is mostly a one-trick pony. But, oh my, what a trick it is - the XPERIA Pureness is the first mobile phone with a see-through display.
Moving on to the newly announced features of the device - Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness will measure 102.0 x 43.0 x 13.0 mm and will weigh only 70 grams. It will pack 88MB of internal memory, Bluetooth A2DP and USB connectivity. The quad-band GSM radio will give it worldwide roaming capabilities, while the 3G with HSPA support will deliver the high-speeds needed for the NetFront web browser (yes, there is one, even though it's grayscale only).
There's also FM radio onboard the XPERIA Pureness and the company's proprietary FastPort. It's still beyond us how come Sony Ericsson can place a crater of this caliber on the side of the phone and still promote it as fashion-minded.
Another thing missing is certainly the option for memory expansion as 88MB don't sound merely enough for storing your music collection.
The official specifications of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness also contain some pretty amusing mistakes. For one the company states that the display is capable of showing up to 262K colors, when in fact it is grayscale. One would think they will double-check that spec after the whole debate over the misspelled specs on the XPERIA X10. We also cannot see any M2 slot on the device (mind you, the battery cover cannot be opened).
Anyway, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness should be available before the end of the month for about 600 euro in select boutiques (you won't be finding that one in your run-of-the-mill operator shop). We guess, them piggy banks should start trembling, or should they?
I'm soooo curious. Can't wait to try this phone. Since no one on this planet have ever use this kind of phone. It's unique.
U-G-L-Y! No wonder SE is suffering financially! Too many gimmicks on their phones that probably won't sell! SE is losing money Fast and losing marketshare Fast!!!
