>> Kent German: Hi. I'm Kent German, Senior Editor at CNET.com. I'm here at CTIA 2009 in Las Vegas. I want to show you the Sony Ericsson t707. Now, Sony Ericsson did not officially announce the phone at the show. They actually announced it about a week before, but they are showing it. So it is our first chance to see it. It is a flip phone. It's pretty thin. Sony Ericsson never really got exclusive into the thin thing. Not like Samsung and some of the other manufacturers, but they definitely did it here, and it works pretty well. It does come in three colors. It comes in the green you see here. It also comes in a grey. It comes in a pink as well. On the outside, you'll see a kind of a circular design. It does pulsate with light when the phone rings. You can also see the time. It's not showing right now, but the time shows up along with the caller ID and all that sort of thing. It's just the external display is pretty small. On top, you'll see a camera lens. That's for the three megapixel camera. Back's pretty plain. Just a speaker. You'll see the standard Sony Ericsson charger slot here. That is proprietary. Sony Ericsson is moving toward the universal micro USB port for charging so that's a good sign. And then you have a volume rocker over on this side. Inside, pretty nice display. Phone doesn't have a SIM card, but you see it's pretty bright, colorful. Maybe almost a little too bright for my taste, but still, pretty nice resolution. Keypad and controls. They are flat with the surface of the phone. You see that here. You can see the circular design on the front. They mixed this right here so that's a nice touch. Have a navigation toggle. Couple of soft keys. Talking NT. You have a menu button so that gives you the short cuts, and a clear button. Then the circular keypad buttons. The numbers on the keys are big. Maybe the letters are a little bit small, but not too bad. As I said, it is flat with the surface of the phone so dialing by feel is going to be difficult, but it does have a bright backlighting. Inside, you'll find a music player, that three megapixel camera. You'll find organizer features, Bluetooth, speaker phone, messaging. So pretty much what you'd expect from a mid-range multi-media phone. No word on if this phone is going to make it to the U.S., or at least a U.S. carrier. It will be available unlocked, of course, probably the second quarter of this year. And if you're a tennis fan, you might want to know that this phone is officially endorsed by Maria Sharapova. I'm Kent German, and this is Sony Ericsson t707. [ Music ]
