Unboxing the Sony Ericsson K850i

What do you get when you combine a good 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus, macro, and xenon flash with a nice quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band (!) UMTS/HSDPA world phone?

You get the Sony Ericsson K850i.

It’s been a long time since I’ve used a Sony Ericsson device for primary duty. Over the next few weeks I’ll be putting the K850i through its paces, and measuring it against the new Nokia N95, US version…

In the meantime, here are some pictures – it’s smaller than I expected and it’s a fingerprint magnet.

Sorry for the flash in the pictures, but I didn’t have my Nokia N95, so I borrowed a Nikon D50 but I failed to find a mode (manual or automatic) that didn’t result in blurry shots without the flash in low light (it was a rainy Seattle day).

  1. After using a K800i for 12 months I decided to upgrade… I’ve done a comparison between k800i and k850i.

    Thing is – I’ve also noticed that the flash is a little odd with my k850i at the moment – is yours odd too?
