The T600 was unveiled in Singapore and close to 30 other locations around the world in connection with the CommunicAsia 2002 Summit. As Sony Ericsson now adds a powerful range of products to its portfolio, the T600 brings a small phone with great looks and messaging capabilities to the table. Within the phone, there is a gallery of expressive pictures in various themes and it is easy to include a picture in a text message. It is also possible to add sounds to a message, such as claps or chimes, or compose a ring melody and send as a sound attachment. To do this, the phone uses EMS, which is also implemented by other major handset vendors.

For gaming, the T600 features entertaining games, some of them giving the gamer physical feedback with vibrations. As the T600 is a triple band phone, it can be used across five continents, making it the ideal phone for the frequent traveler.

Weighing less than 60 grams, the T600 still has 1.5 - 5 hours of talk time and 80-180 hours of stand-by time. The T600 comes in three colors, Moonlight Silver, Marine Blue and Sand Gold (available in some markets only). For further personalization and wearability, the T600 has a loophole where a wriststrap or mascot can be attached.

The T600 is also available for Chinese speaking markets, as the T602, supporting Chinese text input when sending SMS or registering names in the phonebook. The T602 has Lunar calendar as an extra feature.

Sony Ericsson today unveiled the T300 mobile phone, which offers entertaining multimedia applications like imaging, messaging and gaming, and is priced for the mass market. Triple-band GSM/GPRS, colour screen, polyphonic ring signals and MMS together deliver a complete messaging phone. Together with the phone, a new digital snap-on camera accessory was unveiled, the CommuniCam™ MCA-25. Both the T300 and the digital camera will be on the market in Q4 2002.
The combination of features, Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), polyphonic sound, exchangeable fronts, games, lots of imaging features and a large 256 color screen makes the T300 unique in its price range. Together with the new CommuniCam™, it is a really attractive mobile imaging and messaging proposition for a large audience.

With the T300, all current forms of mobile messaging are possible; SMS and EMS, but also MMS and e-mail. MMS is the follow up to the highly popular SMS text messaging feature. With MMS, users can create, send and receive messages that include high quality photos, formatted text and recorded sound clips. The 24-tone polyphonic feature makes the ring signals sound like real songs as it means the phone can play several tones simultaneously. T300 users can share ring signals, download them from the web and compose them using their T300. It is also possible to add a sound to person's contact information, making it easy to identify who is calling.

The CommuniCam™ MCA-25 is the latest snap-on camera from Sony Ericsson. Designed with the T300 in mind, the CommuniCam™ MCA-25 has several new features, most notably digital zoom. With these products, it is possible to send pictures as MMS or e-mail, save them as screensavers or browse them as thumbnails in the phonebook.

Also, it is possible to view the subject in the T300 display or use the optical viewfinder. Pictures can be saved in four different pictures sizes, ranging from 80x60 pixels to 640x480 pixels.
