Sony Ericson G502;
Specs and an image of Sony Ericsson's newest phone, the G502, made it out a day early. The EDGE-enabled G502 features a 2-inch LCD with 320x240-pixel resolution. Software-wise, the G has the ability to display Google Maps for Mobile and supports Exchange ActiveSync for synchronizing Outlook contacts and e-mail. Sony Ericsson's NetFront browser can access the internet and download RSS feeds on the A2-based device. Unlike the company's G700 and G900 announced earlier this year, it doesn't have the 3G support, making do with three-band GSM.
The G502's 2-megapixel camera will have the ability to record movies or capture still images at up to 4x digital zoom. Internal memory is rated at 32MB, and externally expandable via Memory Stick Micro cards. Transferring images and other content can be accomplished via a USB 2.0 plug or wirelessly thanks to Bluetooth 2.0+ EDR.
Two color choices are expected: hazel or black.
The G502 is expected to launch by the end of June in selected markets, although nothing is yet official.
Why would you ever buy a phone with cheap arse features? why dont you just go with the phones on the street?It doesnt make any sense, because you're wasting your money on SE phones made out of cheap China labor and materials.
I dont need a 5 mpix camera because the price of the phone will be higher. 2 mpix camera is enough for almoust users.SE team is cool!
another useless SE...
is the same thing: 2mp camera, 240x320 resolution, no wlan, non smartphone, non a god phone.
Still the same old Technology ~~~Not even 16m color screens ~~~~ -Yawns- Disappointed!!!
Also the same old g@yish bar design :/
nice looking phone. common SE lets start doing some 5 meg camera phones.2 megapixel a bit 2006 isnt it.
keep up the good work SE.
Sony Ericsson will be announcing the G502, previously known by the codename Emelie, on Wednesday 23rd April - well, that doesn’t keep us from revealing it already! G502 is a fancy-looking candy bar phone in the style of K530, but with a clean black design, that feels a bit inspired by the land of Japan.
The front of this black jewel plays host to a 2 inch large TFT display of QVGA resolution, capable of showing upto 262.144 colours.
The G502 is a HSDPA-enabled phone targeted at the business & youth segment with support Exchange Activesync and built-in Google Maps for Mobile. The phone is supposedly ready for Web 2.0 with the built-in Access NetFront web browser, and it shall be easy to set up e-mail accounts on it by using the e-mail wizard. RSS feeds can be displayed on the standby screen, as on other A2-based feature phones.
It will feature a 2 mega pixel fixed focus camera on the back with 4x digital zoom and video recording possibilites. Apart from that, G502 features Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR as well as USB 2.0 support.
Its dimensions will be 109 x 46 x 13.5 millimetres, and it’ll weigh in at 83.5 grams. It has 32 MB internal memory, and it can be expanded by Memory Stick Micro cards.
G502, which is a tri-band GSM phone with EDGE support, will hit selected markets in Q2 this year, and will be available in two colour trimmings; Brilliant Hazel & Champagne Black.
Pre-release gossip on the Sony G502 and P5 Phones is a wonderful proposition. Here are some of the details.
Sony Ericsson G502 Cell Phone

Fulfilling promises set yesterday, Sony Ericsson today has launched two new 3G phones, including one destined for the US. The G502 is the third device in the handset maker's G series and is one of the few non-Windows phones to explicitly support Microsoft's ActiveSync for pulling Exchange contacts and e-mail in real time. The phone is one of the company's first in the class to support HSDPA Internet access and uses this both for fast e-mail downloads and for Google Maps, RSS feeds, and a custom weather forecast tool.The bar phone comes with a 2-megapixel camera and will ship in black and hazel colors during the spring, but is believed to be focused on Europe without support for 850MHz bands. Pricing isn't available.
Anyone hoping for another UIQ-based superphone can avert their eyes right now, but otherwise, hold on -- Sony Ericsson might just be onto something with its upcoming G502. The sleek black candybar should freshen the dead center of SE's lineup with a QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera, HSDPA, Memory Stick M2-expandable storage, and the NetFront browser that's become a hallmark of Sony Ericsson's better non-smartphone devices. Rumor has it it'll get official on the 24th -- just two short days from now -- so get your popcorn ready, or whatever it is that you and your family do when you're gathering around the computer in anticipation of a new handset announcement.

For all those who are viewing this phone G502, is that SE is still upgrading this phone G502 and this is not yet the full specification of this phone G502 bec. SE is still upgrading the features of this phone just wait and see...
dody, its a low to mid tier, u are getting more in what u will be paying so just chill
if the w series is for music
and the k series for great cameras
whats the Z series all about :S
and why can't sony ericsson make a walkman phone with a camera above 2.0 megapixels =(
common every one cannot buy iphone for web surfing it think this is the best solution of cheaper web based phone and see it many even nokia symbian phones lack these features which ssony ericsson is giving in this phone. i looking to buy k660 as it has same features. i use phone to check my e-mails so i need a phone which is good at it.
This phone is cool. I will probably buy this phone. They should have made the screen bigger, like 2.2 inches. But anyway, this is really beautiful. I don't need a good camera because I have a 8 MP digicam. I don't need a front camera because I don't use video call.
For those who are not impressed, find a phone that suits you. Please don't keep on bashing this cutie baby.
