Sony Ericsson gets Bonded in Quantum of Solace

Spoiler Alert for all you Phone Spotters out there: we list every Sony Ericsson phone known to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming James Bond Quantum of Solace movie. If you don’t want to spoil your phone spotting fun, then move on and let the rest of us enjoy some Bond-branded Sony Ericsson phones. Now that we got the disclaimer out of the way, let’s get onto the phones. Eight different characters in Quantum of Solace will be sporting 6 different Sony Ericsson models, including the now canceled Sony Ericsson W707 (Alicia). The pair-ups are as follows:

  • James Bond : C902 in limited Titanium Silver color
  • Bond’s Wifey : W350 in Graphic White color
  • M : G700 in Mineral Grey color
  • Matthus : G700
  • CIA : W910
  • Villiers : G700
  • Green (new character) : G900
  • Elvis (new character) : W707 (Alicia)

It is product placement gone wild. Double agent wannabes can score one of the limited edition C902 Titanium Silver phones as used by James Bond. It will ship with a pre-loaded James Bond spy-style game, full color trailer of the film, behind-the-scenes interviews, and other Quantum of Solace branded content such as ringtones, wallpapers, and themes. Sorry but no Bond Girls, real or virtual, are included. The new Quantum of Solace C902 phone is expected to be available for a limited time in Q4 2008.

Camera sold on eBay contains MI6 intelligence

Camera sold on eBay contains MI6 intelligence

James Bond couldn’t have been this careless, could he? Nah, it was probably a rookie; you know, an agent who hadn’t, and probably won’t, make it to Double-0 status. Anyhoo, a Nikon Coolpix camera sold on eBay for $30 turned out to be well worth the money, assuming the benefits outweigh the risks. In this case, it doesn’t. The camera was once owned by an MI6 agent and he or she forgot to delete a few items here and there. It’s just the typical shots of rocket launchers, terrorist network diagrams, leaked images of the new Blackberry 9600… wait, scratch that last one. This could have been a complete hoax done by some 28-year-old seeking attention, but apparently it has been confirmed by MI6 when agents found the man missing from his treehouse with the bark engraved, “MI6 wuz here, lolz!”
