Sony Ericsson today announced 6 new phones as well as an overwhelming number of accessories including speaker systems and Bluetooth watches. Of the phones announced today, the K850 is the only one clearly meant for US shore, however many others will come in US-friendly versions. New high-end models include a send and end as well as soft keys, a trend first seen on the Z750. This hints that they will include a new user interface.

US carrier for K850?

So who's going to carry the K850? Is it going to take Cingular a year after release to get it in their stores like what happened with the W810?
YEEEESSSSSSSS! All i needed was the quad band gsm. This will be my next phone! Drooling
Just like EVERY top-end phone that is released overseas, it will likely NOT be picked up by a carrier. Buy it unlocked unbranded.
it's hardly
at&t coughed too much money for iPhone
Hopefully at&t will.

5 megapixel?

That's a little bit of overkill.
Lots of people said the same thing when the 2mp K750 came out.
Naw , its about time i say. I love the 3.2 mp on my 790a . To up grade is devine. Wink
whatever! it's perfect! i've been waiting for a sony with us HSDPA and a good camera. this will be my next personal handset!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Green/Black housing - metal?

I know the stainless steel/blue edition is in fact stainless steel, but is the green/black edition metal? I sure hope so...
Personally, I like the blue one a real lot. Even though green is my favorite color, I like that tone of blue. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Does NOT have full US support - no 850 band

Link: en&ver=4000&template=pip3&zone=pp&pid=10868

* GSM 900
* GSM 1800
* GSM 1900
* UMTS 850
* UMTS 1900
* UMTS 2100

Supports UMTS850, but not GSM850.
That is most definitely a typo. No way it could support UMTS 850 and not gsm 850...
we received specs this morning from sony ericsson which state this K850 is quad band. i'm calling to confirm, but i have to believe this is an omission on the website. it's highly unlikely a phone would have HSDPA 850/1900 and not GSM 850

Where are the new SE's for T-Mobile USA?

I don't see any of these for T-Mobile USA. All these crazy phones are for AT&T, with their 3G bands. The nice phones always go to AT&T and overseas carriers. I don't see how it would take so long to put My-Faves software on an SE phone, if they were bound for T-Mobile in the future. Plus, still no 3G 1700MHz band phones supported by SE.
Well TMo's 3G for 1700MHz is at least 6 months away from what I hear. The reason you do not see SE handsets on TMo USA goes back to some stupid feud they had a while back. My favs software is only a recent 'issue'...

My favs should be a network s...
They're not for AT&T - they're for european customers. If you want one, pick one up unlocked unbranded. (I never buy phones from the carrier, unlocked unbranded phones are not nearly as common or dumbed-down). You will have to give up MyFaves if you w...
not now
let's see what'll come in Q1 2008
sonyericsson is surely coming back, after T610, just sit and see

Symbian OS??

Somebody PLEASE tell me that this phone will have symbian on it. Then I can finally look forward to a phone coming out again.

I love my symbian phone!

The K850i does NOT have symbian. Thank God. ... »
Symbian in itself doesn't mean much to the user, since it's an "under the hood" thing... like "Intel Inside" (except software).

The UI isn't Symbian, it's UIQ, which is quite different from the S60 interface that Nokia uses on their Symbian-based p...

Minor TYPO

In the article under the K530, you state that "support for a new GPS receiver and software suite that plus into the accessory port. " Shouldn't that say plugs instead of plus?

From the Horses Mouth, K850 IS Quad-Band

We spoke directly to Sony Ericsson. The facts as they appear in the article are correct. The K850 is a quad-band 850/900/1800/1900 GSM/EDGE, tri-band HSDPA phone.
If this is true, then hoorah! Why the hell did SE not list this on the spec sheet??? I hope they change it and make it "official." Here: ... »
I am so gonna buy this phone! Drooling
There's no GSM 850 there, but Telestra offers UMTS 850. ... »

How many times a year does SE announce new phones?

Didn't they announc new phones a few months ago?
The K810 was announced in February, though there is no set schedule to SE releases.
