The Kurara goes official as Sony Ericsson Vivaz
The second full-touch Sony Ericsson handset running on the Symbian platform has just been officially announced. The previously rumored as Kurara handset will be known as Sony Ericsson Vivaz from now on.
Just as expected the Sony Ericsson Vivaz runs on the Symbian S60 platform and packs an 8 megapixel autofocus camera capable of recording 720p video. The 3.2" display sports a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels and is capable of showing up to 16M colors. The CPU inside the human curvature-inspired body clocks at 720 MHz.
Sony Ericsson Vivaz has an excellent set of connectivity options - USB (they used a standard microUSB jack this time), Wi-Fi, GPS, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 3G with HSDPA. The music fans will appreciate the 3.5mm audio jack, the FM radio and the built-in microSD card slot that allows expanding the 75MB of internal memory. There will be an 8GB microSD card slot included in the retail package so you can start capturing those magnificent 720p videos right away.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz should become available before the end of the first quarter for an yet unknown price.
