Sony Ericsson announced the new UIQ-based G series phones today, including the G700 and G900. Both are bar-style phones with touch-screen user interfaces on 2.4-inch displays. In addition to stylus input like previous UIQ phones, the G series has several applications tweaked for finger-touch, including a top-level shortcut menu, photo navigator, and "sticky notes" application. Both have Sony Ericsson's music applications and FM radios with RDS and stereo Bluetooth. They each have tri-band GSM/EDGE 900/1800/1900 and 2100MHz HSDPA radios.
- G700: The G700 features a 3.2 megapixel shooter with image stabilizer.
- G900: Features unique to the G900 are a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. The camera sports an innovative feature where users can simply touch the part of the viewfinder where they want the camera to focus.
