Sony Ericsson Yari Preview
„Hey dude, would you pass me the Yeti… erm, I mean the Yori ... Jeez!, I mean the Yari”. This is only one of the consequences arising out of the Sony Ericsson´s decision to give their devices names that sound funny peculiar. The Yari (the Japanese word for a javelin) is a slider phone designed to offer multitude of new options to mobile gaming buffs. Games can be not only controlled through the standard buttons, but the accelerometer and camera as well. We´ll get to this later. Let´s fist take a look at the overall look of the device.
The previous model of the manufacturer that targets the same market segment is the F305 that is likeable in a childish and somewhat cheapish way. The Sony Ericsson Yari looks more presentable and features larger 2.4-inch screen with QVGA resolution. There are two buttons right above that are used to call up the game menu or control in-game actions. Navigational keys, send and end buttons are below the screen along with a flat keypad that takes up the lower half of the slider.

The microSD slot in on the right hand side along with the volume rocker and camera shutter, while the only thing on the opposite is the charger port. The back side houses 5-megapixel camera with flash and a pair of quite large loudspeakers.
