Sony Ericsson Announces the T303; Party Like it’s 1999?

CeBIT is now underway in Hamburg, Germany and Sony Ericsson has chosen the forum to officially announce a new low-end handset dubbed T303. Shots of the T303 had been leaked last week but the name of the device and its specs were unknown at that point. Well, mystery solved. The T303 is aimed at the younger market and fits in the ‘fashion phone’ category; petite dimensions, mirror chromed face and limited functionality are tell-tale signs. Light users may enjoy this one but expect it to be a downgrade if you’ve ever owned a phone that does, well, anything. Specs include:

  • 1.8″ 128×160 65K color screen
  • 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom
  • media player with TrackID
  • FM Radio with RDS
  • Dimensions: 83×47×14.7 mm
  • Weight: 93 grams
  • No memory card slot (?!?)
  • No 3G, No HSDPA, and no EDGE (?!?)

We really wish there was more to say on this one, but what you see is what you get. If you have a pre-teen and decided it’s finally time to get him / her a handset, this might be your bag. Others need not apply. The T303 will be available in three variants: T303/T303c with GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 is various markets and T303a with GSM/GPRS 850/1800/1900 for the US. Each of the three versions is expected to become available mid-year.
