The Sony Ericsson G502 is a candybar design handset, aimed at the mid range market. One of its biggest points is the inclusion of HSDPA Mobile Broadband connectivity.
The G502 is the latest in an established line of classic Sony Ericsson handsets that squeeze in a host of top end features into a pocket sized mobile phone. The G502 comes with Google Maps for mobile pre-installed, offering a quick and easy way to navigate to a local restaurant, find the nearest cashpoint or a garage. Utilising HSDPA this map access is simple and quick.
The G502 measures in at a comfortable 109mm x 46mm x 13.5mm and weighs just 83.5g. The 2 inch QVGA screen supports up to 256,000 colours and is very clear and crisp. Onboard memory is 32MB with the possibility to expand this with a Sony M2 memory stick.
The camera on the phone is a smart 2.0 megapixel with video recording capability. Blog support is included, which allows you to post your pictures straight onto the web direct from the handset. The G502 also includes a music player, and an FM radio. As seems to be standard on most Sony Ericsson phones these days, is the inclusion of the excellent Track ID feature. This allows you to record a snippet of song onto the phone and receive track information direct to the handset; very useful when you are listening to the radio.
There is full java support on the phone, so you can add various games to the handset, plus download some top java applications, such as the excellent Opera Mini.
The Sony Ericsson G502 is expected to be released sometime during Q2 2008.
