Sony Ericsson’s foray into many different OS supporting their handsets is reaching quite a bit of momentum. They’ve more or less ventured into every platform they can get their hands on, which to me shows the company doesn’t quite know which will be the true successor, but much like HTC perhaps isn’t relying on any one OS.
Their previous Symbian powered handset didn’t quite live up to expectation, (Satio) although it did raise a lot of eyebrows and attention. What let it down mostly was buggy software and poor battery life, after which it was pretty quickly removed from shelves by many of the big retail stores.
I’m hoping they’ve learnt from those mistakes and have put that knowledge into their 2nd Symbian device. With experience with UIQ devices previously I find it unacceptable they would be making such poor mistakes. They’ve announced the Vivaz, which on paper looks to be one pretty slick and impressive device. It’s been touted as a multimedia device and as expected has some very impressive features; 8.1 Megapixel camera, 16:9nHD 640×360 screen, 720p video capture and various software enhanced features for taking stills too.Read More »Thoughts on Sony Ericsson Vivaz
