Sony Ericsson C905

The Sony Ericsson C905 is Sony’s newest cybershot phone that boasts an 8 megapixel camera! 8 megapixel, that’s a lot of camera power, plus it has autofocus and lots of other camera goodies. Sony Ericsson’s previous camera were only 5 megapixels and their latest include the Sony Ericsson W902, a walkman phone with a 5 megapixel camera.

Sony Ericsson C905 reviews say that image quality wise, the C905 is superb. Though of course, I don’t think that this will be enough for photo enthusiasts to throw away their stand alone digital cameras.

Sony’s need for dedicated servers

One would wonder if a big company like Sony utilizes dedicated servers for their Sony Playstation Network website. It’s just that every time they announce a firmware update, I have to wait a few months since I could hardly get hold of their site because of the traffic. Thankfully, there are some gaming websites and forums wherein you can download the files and their server is a Los Angeles dedicated server so I accessing their websites and downloading files is very fast.

Maybe it’s time that Sony transfers some of their funding and invest in bigger servers, preferably with R1Soft Backup so that they could cater to the growing Sony Playstation Network community.

Personalized Ringtones for Contacts on Sony Ericsson Phones

Maybe I’m just neglecting to browser my mobile phones much but it has been only recently when I’ve found out that you can assign different ringtones for your contacts on the Sony Ericsson phones. I’ve downloaded a bunch of free ringtones to see how this works.

For those with Sony Ericsson phones, you only have to go to your contacts menu, select options, select the contact and then select add or edit. You can then personalize the ringtones and even assign pictures for your contacts. Of course, this would only work if your carrier offer caller id services but hey, which carrier nowadays doesn’t, right?

TV on PC

I’ve been coming upon sites which offers TV on PC. They all promise to offer you access to thousands of TV and movie links and free TV channels all over the world. It’s very enticing and I’ve been thinking of subscribing to one.

Cable and Satellite bills are bit steep for me and these websites offering free TV are only charging a one time fee and I’ll be able to access different channels from around the world. Of course, while watching TV on your PC can probably save me on Cable TV bills, I’d probably have to spend more on Internet Charges as to watch television on PC will eat up a lot of my bandwidth.

It would be a hard decision and I’ll probably have someone with some financial background do the math for me but this would be something I’ll consider for sometime. Of course, if I can access this on my mobile phone, it would probably make my decision much easier.

Sony Adds New Memory Stick to their Memory Stick Line-Up

It seems that I’ve missed on reporting about this. While searching for additional computer memory for my VAIO laptop, it seems that Sony has expanded their line of memory stick.

The newest line of memory stick media is the HX series which Sony states, “offers higher transfer rates especially for large capacity files”. Hmm, with a 20 MB read speed and 15MB write speed, it’s three times faster than the Memory Stick PRO Duo, at least in paper.

Also, I don’t know whether this is Sony’s attempt at preempting the Toshiba backed MOD System which offers movie downloads to memory cards, but Sony has also released their Memory Stick Entertainment Pack which buyers can choose from one of four movies released by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Sony will be providing buyers with code to unlock the movies of their choice which is optimized for playback on the PS3 and PSP.
