Unboxing the Sony Ericsson C905a

Another day, another unboxing :)

I was recently offered to test the second subsidized 8-megapixel cameraphone in the US, the Sony Ericsson C905a – the first being the Samsung T929 (Memoir), one of my favorite devices this year.

Of course, being slightly obsessed with mobile photography and rather fond of those quirky Nordic devices, I accepted!

The C905a is the successor to the wonderful Sony Ericsson K850i, which was my primary phone for some time.

It ditches the K850i’s candybar design in favor of a slider layout, uses a larger screen (2.4″ instead of 2.2″), looses the dual-format card slot (now only M2, not also micro-SD), and adds GPS & WiFi.

Unfortunately, WiFi is disabled in AT&T’s firmware and can only be enabled by debranding the phone…

Although feature-wise, the C905a is similar to the Nokia N86 8MP, it is not a smartphone. It trumps the N86 with a Xenon flash, but lacks the OLED display and the standard ports (mini-USB & 3.5 mm audio).

Stay tuned as I compare the C905a camera to the Memoir and the N86 – in the meantime, here are my unboxing pictures and unboxing video.

  1. Hey tnkgrl, stumbled across your site via Google while searching for camera phone info. Thanks for the great blog and very informative videos, nice to find another T-Mobile camera phone buff. I have a unlocked Sony Ericsson K790a I use on T-Mobile which I love, but it’s pretty beat up at this point and want to upgrade… but I’d rather not go to AT&T and want Wi-Fi and would prefer T-Mobile 3G compatibility… maybe I should just get an N900! Looking forward to an 8MP shootout!
