A couple new features in this handset is the menu item called "Pre Play" and the FM Radio feature. First alittle about the Pre Play feature. Basically it is a pre-installed menu item that connects you to a Sony/Ericsson server for the immediate download of popular artists photos and Mp3 ringtones on a pay/per basis...an example of Beyonce's Baby Boy being downloaded.....

Finally, the K700's FM Radio... Connection is made by inserting a standard Sony/Ericsson handsfree into the base of the K700. I assume that it will ship with at stereo headset of some sort sporting the "Butt Plug" of the more common handsfree units. Unlike the P900 which uses a stereo plug for the headset. The headset is only needed to act as an antenna, but the application will not launch until it is attached. Once attached the listener can use the headset for unobtrusive listening or transfer the sound to the K700 itself. I was completely shocked at the volume the radio produces through the K700's speaker and everyone I showed this feature to just loved it..much better than the old FM radio add on's that were available for the Motorola V60 and V70 phones of yester year.... And I just love the interface. You can save your favorite stations and move quickly through them or just search for the next station. Reception was outstanding and the quality was great..
