Releasing handsets in multiple colors seems to be Sony Ericsson’s “thing” lately. More specifically the Xperia X10 Mini and the recently announced Xperia X8, showing up in more colors than we’ve ever seen before. While the Vivaz doesn’t have quite as many colors, a new color model will be released soon. Currently the Sony Ericsson Vivaz is available in Cosmic Black, Silver Moon, Venus Ruby and Galaxy Blue (or black, silver, red and blue to the rest of the world). Pink will be the fifth color for the handset. All specs of the phone will remain the same, it will just be a different color chassis.

The all new Sony Ericsson Vivaz is finally here.  Considered to be a step ahead of Sony Ericsson Xperia, Vivaz is the second offering from Sony Ericsson in its family of high end communication entertainment phones.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz comes with robust Symbian operating system. The most striking feature of this mobile is its HD video recording capabilities which offers videos with quality that could match those with videos from digital video recorders.  Vivaz is no exception to the latest trend in mobile shapes. It is slender, sleek and curvy. Its HD 720p video recording capabilities come with continuous auto focus, meaning users can be rest assured of high quality videos and pics even when they are driving.

kurara-preview

Sony Ericsson have been working on the Kurara handset, also known as the U5. Kurara will be part of the Entertainment Unlimited range, following in the steps of the Satio (U1). Design wise, it looks like Sony Ericsson have taken a leaf out of LG’s book as it looks very similar to the LG Viewty Smart (GC900).

U5 is powered by Symbian and has a Cortex A8 processor and PowerVR graphics chip. Other specs include an 8.1 megapixel camera as well as a 3.5 inch AMOLED touch screen. European price is rumoured to be around 300 Euros but, no specific release date. However for the UK, the handset is rumoured to hit shelves in April. Currently the UK price is unknown but, hopefully there’ll be an announcement at the Mobile World Congress with more information.

entertainment-unlimited-to-3000-satio

While the Satio may be the first of Sony Ericsson’s Entertainment Unlimited range, the handset is actually quite opposite. If you’ve transferred previous photos and music over to your new Satio handset, like I have, depending on how much you transfer, you’ll shortly find that new pictures and videos do not show in the Media section, or on the navigation bar. At first it looks like the phone hasn’t saved the photos but, the files can be accessed through the File Manager. After a look around after experiencing this problem, I’ve find why the photos aren’t showing.

satio-firmware-update
With the Satio being taken off many UK stores shelves it’s not surprising Sony Ericsson have rolled out an update very quickly. Unfortunately though, the update only appears to be for unbranded handsets. Just Another Mobile Blog reports updating an unbranded Satio, while no update was found for a Vodafone handset, which I can also confirm. Hopefully the update will be available quickly for all Satio handsets. The update has reportedly made the phones respond faster.
