Evolved 3G bar

Jan Horalík, 01 October 2007.

Sony Ericsson K530 is a decent looking mid-range handset. It will mostly be favored by those of conservative taste. The new addition to the K series offers 3G support video calling and good entertainment features.

The K530 was among the models Sony Ericsson presented in June. A mid-tier handset of decent equipment, it will appeal to conservative users with its classic neat exterior.
