Sony have released a new Bravia TV, which just from the TV specifications is a great deal. The Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 features a 22 inch display, along with four HDMI ports, two USB ports, SCART socket, component ports, two Ethernet ports, PC input and built in freeview. Most TVs with these kind of specifications go for at least £250, for a quality brand at least and that many connections. The KDL-22PX300 on the other hand, goes for a very reasonable £200.

“Sony is the world leader in entertainment with the unique position of not only creating content, but also delivering highly advanced devices that allow consumers to view that content in their homes,” said Toshifumi Okuda, senior general manager, Home Entertainment Business Group, Sony Corporation. “Extending our relationship with Yahoo! is another example of how Sony is focused on delivering attractive features to worldwide consumers.”
Sony UK has started promoting the new Bravia which comes with 3D technology with an interesting and unorthodox commercial. The ad is just a blur as it is entirely in 3D. The new 3D glasses which use advanced Active Shutter technology are needed to view the commercial.
The commercial features football star Kaka and runs in a fake 3D style. The ad shows shots of a teams training session which goes all wrong , scenes of excited women running, a grimacing bodybuilder, a sports car doing a burnout and a shattering trophy cabinet. This is then followed by a shot which shows Kaka shooting into an empty goal which explodes.
Two new phones have been announced today for those living in Japan. First up is the Cyber shot S003 which, from the looks, is a cross between the C905 and the Satio. On the front, it features a slide out keypad (like the C905), with a 3.2 inch display. The handset can display up to 16.7 million colors and display in 480×854 resolution. Where as on the back, the S003 looks very similar to the Sony Ericsson Satio, including the 12.1 megapixel camera. It also features a Sony Exmor image sensor. It appears to be available in white, black, pink and purple.
