A cost conscious Cybershot
Sony has released a Cybershot camera for those who want to own a model in the famous line that touts a strong digital camera and sleek design but aren’t willing to break the bank. The K550, though being one of the most affordable models, certainly doesn’t skimp on the features as the phone has a 2 Megapixel camera, 2.25x digital zoom, 64 MB internal memory, and Bluetooth 2.0.
On your initial encounter with the K550, the simplistic but stylish design looks as though there isn’t much too this phone. A common problem with phones that fall into the budget category is that they lack the hi-end features that come with other phones, and also don’t have the same kind of attention to design more expensive phones. So when people see boring design they often associate it with uninspired quality.
Multimedia on a budget
This is definitely not the case with the K550 which has enough standard features to make it worthy of any situation. As a successor to the K510, Nokia has upped the ante and upgraded the integrated camera to make it worthy of the Cybershot name. The 2 Megapixel camera which supports resolutions of up to 1632x1224 takes pictures with stunning clarity and precision that most 2 Megapixel cameras can’t hold a candle to. The Autofocus and LED Photolights guarantee that even if you don’t take the photos in the best conditions, you’ll get pristine pictures.
The K550 includes all the next-gen technology that you would expect Sony to outfit their phones with. This quad band phone takes advantage of the fast connections available with EDGE and uses it with the NetFront internet browser to ensure your web browsing is lightning quick. This phone wouldn’t be a part of Sony’s Cybershot line if it didn’t include mp3 playback in the features so that you could listen to your music on the go. With the mp3, WMA/AAC playback option you can be sure to enjoy all the files you’ve got on the computer.
