Sony Ericsson G702 unveiled by the FCC
As its model shows (a G-series device), the G702 is yet another phone, targeted to the “generation Internet” customer. Like the G700 and G900, it would run on UIQ, but this one seems to be the first with the newer 3.3 version. Its manual shows that it will have the Opera 9.5 browser, which has a great rendering engine and a pretty comfortable interface, so the browsing experience will be better than before. For a high-speed Internet connection, one can use either HSDPA (2100 MHz band for Europe only supported) or WiFi. However, if you are not covered by a fast 3G network, you will have to use the slower EDGE technology, but at least it will be usable worldwide, since G702 is a quad-band GSM.
widgets, including a hardware shortcut to them. The manual shows images of Weather, Facebook, and YouTube, which are potential hits among the audiences targeted, but the availability of more apps will be what makes its presence worth it.
The G702 will also have an integrated GPS receiver and a navigation application, but it is yet unknown if it will be a full version, or a demo trial. Google Maps is also preloaded as with previous SE phones. The GPS would probably also be usable for geo-tagging of the photos, captured by the 3-megapixel non-autofocus camera.
