Overview: Sony Ericsson T280

I've recently blogged about how I missed my Sony Ericsson T616 and wished that Sony Ericsson would make phones that are affordable and reliable like my T616. Well, my prayers are answered coz they've released the Sony Ericsson T280.


The Sony Ericsson T280 operates on GSM 850, 900 1800, and 1900 networks. It has a 65k color screen, and is available in silver and black. The Sony Ericsson T280 also has a built in 10MB of phone memory and a built in 1.3 mega pixel camera with 4x digital zoom.


Any fan of Sony Ericsson's older models would like the Sony Ericsson T280's simple candy bar design. Though the phone is not exactly stripped down of features, it's still pretty basic and any non techie person would appreciate the user-friendliness of the Sony Ericsson T280. The 1.3 mega pixel camera is an upgrade to the VGA cameras of the older phones and though a 1.3 mega pixel camera is not that powerful in today's camera phone standards, expect to get clear enough pictures to print on 3 x 4 photo papers. The Sony Ericsson T280 also has the capability to playback MP3 music as your ringtones, however, don't expect the Sony Ericsson T280 to double as an MP3 player since it only has a built in 10MB of memory which is shared between your SMS messages and your phonebook, which means you're limited to about 2 to 3 MP3 files, and it has no expandable memory.

Though you can't play MP3 music on the Sony Ericsson T280, you can pass the time by listening to your favorite FM station or play java games. Other applications available on the Sony Ericsson T280 includes: Alarm clock, calculator, calendar, phone book, stopwatch, tasks, and timer.

For those looking for a simple camera phone, the Sony Ericsson T280 is something to look forward to. And if you're looking for a stripped down phone without a camera, try to look out for the Sony Ericsson T270.

I'm getting extremely tired of all these cell phones that keep coming onto the market. Whenever you buy a cell phone a new one is released the next day. Its also hard to buy a cell phone as cool gift gadgets because they become outdated very quickly.
