Sony Ericssons Vivaz makes its way to At&t for a September 5 release date
Sony Ericsson has been making waves lately with the introduction of their Xperia X10 stateside. Now I know the Xperia X10 is not the biggest or badest device on the planet, I mean really it runs Android 1.6 out of the box. But the unit is powerful enough to keep the company afloat in the past few quarters and obviously it did not do it alone. So the next chapter in the saga of Sony Ericsson is the “other” – keep us in the black – device the Vivaz!
When Sony Ericsson announced that their baby the X10 would arrive stateside via At&t it was known that the Vivaz was soon to follow. Today brings us a press release from the folks over at At&t that the Sony Ericsson Vivaz is making its way to their shelves. The Vivaz runs Sony Ericsson’s own S60 operating system, an 8.1 mega pixel camera that can record video in 720p, a 3.2 inch nHD resistive touch screen display, Bluetooth, aGPS, and a micro-sd card slot. The Vivaz which will be priced at $79.99 after a $50 mail in rebate will be available in Galaxy Blue or Venus Red. That about it in a nutshell guys, but it seems that At&t is quite excited about the relase of the Vivaz, hopefully it does as well in the states as it did worldwide. The coolest part of this Viviaz has to be its nHD screen; nHD is technology that has been developed by Texas Instruments. The new nHD chipset is being called the nHD DLP chipset and can reach resolutions up to 640×360. So add the recording capabilities of the 720p enabled camera and you have yourself a very nice mobile media device.
