The two phones, packed with the latest camera technology, make it effortless to take perfect pictures of those spontaneous moments ? day or night, at a bar or the beach ? and instantly share them with friends and family.
?The two new Cyber-shot phones that we have announced today share certain characteristics. Both phones place ease-of-use and best-in-class picture quality at the heart of their designs,? said Sven Tott?, Head of Imaging Marketing at Sony Ericsson. ?Yet both appeal to different audiences. One is engineered to let you take more pictures in more places and the other is designed to look as stunning as the pictures it takes.?

The slim line C902 Cyber-shot will have everyone wanting to have their picture taken. Ultra-compact, stylish and with a unique lens cover that slides open to reveal the 5.0 megapixel Auto Focus camera, the C902Cyber-shot sports a camera performance beyond its sleek and slim looks. The phone?s lighting dramatically signals when you are in camera mode by switching from white to blue. The eight camera touch keys come to life and let you choose between camera modes, Photo Flash, Face Detection and Auto Focus, and more with just one touch without moving your finger from the shutter button.
Just shoot With the C902 Cyber-shot you just need to slide open the active lens cover and shoot.

Night shoot With the C902 Cyber-shot you can be confident of getting the perfect shot. The phone incorporates the latest in lighting technology ? Photo Flash ? giving you better quality pictures even in low-light conditions. Also, a light solution has been added to the established BestPic feature ? which lets you take nine photos in quick succession, choose the best and delete the rest. So now you can use BestPic wherever you are, perhaps even to capture the dance-floor action in a club!

Easy transfer wherever you are You can transfer the images on your phone to your computer by using the CCR-70 M2 USB Adapter, also announced today.
