Damn you, Indecision!

Continuous-autofocus camcorder phone Vivaz launched by Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson has just launched a new flagship media smartphone, the Vivaz, running S60 5th Edition and a tweaked version of the software in the Satio. It’s a smaller device (think Nokia 5800), with 3.2″ screen and ‘human curvature’ design(!) and available in silver, black, blue and ‘ruby’. The star feature though is the camcorder functionality, with full 720p video capture and continuous auto-focus, a first in production phones. Stills are at 8 megapixels with single LED flash. Availability is this quarter.

Kind of a silly commercial, but the video/camera specs are impressive. I think Sony Ericsson has great cameras in their phones. I was really interested in the Satio, and this phone seems to be based on it, but with Android, webOS, and iPhone 4.0 at the forefront of my interests, S60 has unfortunately taken a backseat to them.
