Sony Ericsson and its brand ambassador, Maria Sharapova have just announced the new handset, T707, a flip phone that already surfaced in China weeks ago.

Sony Ericsson T707 supports gesture control and works in quad band GSM, UMTS/HSDPA 2100, UMTS/HSDPA 850/1900/2100 networks. There’s also a 2.2 inch TFT internal display on board (240 x 320 pixels), Google Maps, FM radio with RDS, a 3.2 megapixel camera with video recording and geotagging and 100 MB of internal memory.


The new flip phone also packs the NetFront HTML browser, email, Exchange ActiveSync, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, a media player, YouTube and a Memory Stick Micro slot (cards of up to 16 GB). T707 will hit the shops in Q2 2009 for a yet unannounced price. Here’s Maria Sharapova detailing the device:
