Sony Ericsson Kurara, Now Known as Vivaz, Stunning Camera on Board
We’ve discussed Sony Ericsson Kurara each time we’ve had the chance over the past months, but now it seems that the hot cameraphone will be getting a different official name: Vivaz. Also, it’ll be launched in this quarter and, as you can see in the following images, it follows the XPERIA X10 design line.
Notice the smooth lines and rounded edges, a style that SE has announced it’ll keep on future devices as well. Sony Ericsson Vivaz uses the Symbian S60 theme also present on the Satio model, but with a bunch of minor modifications. The most important feature of this handset is certainly its 8.1 megapixel camera, capable of HD video recording @ 720p resolution.
Also, the cameraphone supports direct upload via YouTube and Picasa, plus its camera comes with image stabilization, smile recognition, continuous autofocus and geotagging. SE Vivaz is scheduled for a Q1 release in selected markets, but its price is not yet known (probably around $670 – $750).
