Sony Ericsson has unveiled its new K770 Cyber-shot phone which it claims is a ‘digital camera, a photo album and an elegant phone all in-one.’

It says the 14.5 mm slim phone will allow you to send and share your photos as soon as you’ve taken them on its 3.2 megapixel camera.

Sony Ericsson claims the K770 can take pictures as well as a standalone digital camera, which can then be printed up to A4 size.

The camera can also be used for video and comes with a photo light for indoor picture taking and filming.

Once in camera mode the 1.9inch screen becomes the viewfinder, while eight lit icons across the keypad act as shortcuts to each of the camera’s key functions.

You can then either transfer the pictures to your PC or direct to a printer or alternatively upload them to your own personal online gallery.

The Head of Central Marketing at Sony Ericsson,  Helene Barnekow, said: ‘If you like the idea of having a snapshot camera on your phone, and want shots that look good in your family album, then the K770 is perfect.

‘The real beauty of the K770 is that you can let your friends and family share your experiences.’

Media Player

The K770 comes with a 256 MB memory card that lets you store up to 200 photos, an FM radio and Media Player and is due to hit shops later this year.

Which? mobile phone expert Jon Barrow said: 'We plan to test this new handset when it is launched later in the year.'
