If you thought cellphones were ideal spying gadgets, you are in good (if a little fictional) company: no less a spy than James Bond. He uses a hi-tech Sony Ericsson phone in the new Bond movie, ‘Quantum of Solace’, due on our screens in November.
Sony Ericsson is launching a limited edition Titanium silver C902 Cyber-shot phone as used by James Bond – played by actor Daniel Craig – in the forthcoming new Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, due for worldwide release in November 2008. The new mobile phone, says Sony-Ericsson (with a little inspiration from Bond), will make sure you are ready for any challenge, immersing you into the world of a secret agent with interactive 007 content and a spy-style game.
The C902 Cyber-shot phone is used throughout the film by James Bond to capture evidence and assist the agent on his mission. The 5 megapixel camera, with a slide-out lens cover, illuminated touch icons providing quick and easy access to camera options, face detection, photo flash and auto focus enables James Bond to send high resolution shots back to MI6 for quick recognition of his enemies. The phone also offers BestPic, which allows users to take nine pictures of a moving object simultaneously and choose the best shot to use, plus picture blogging for uploading photos to blog sites and PictBridge for printing direct to a printer, without the need for a PC or laptop.
Sony Ericsson is unveiling the phone in an exclusive partnership between the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures/Columbia Pictures release of EON Productions’ 22nd James Bond adventure. The C902 Titanium silver edition will be available for a limited period and include a host of 007 content.
Users will get the chance to know ‚exactly what it takes to be a secret agent like James Bond‚ with the first level of an exclusive pre-loaded spy-style game. In addition, the full colour trailer of the film and content such as wallpapers and screen savers will be available on the phone.
In August 2006, Sony Ericsson also teamed up with James Bond to launch a limited edition James Bond Casino Royale silver K800i Cyber-shot camera phone. And, in November 2002, the Sony Ericsson P600 and T68i mobile phones were used by several of the cast in the 20th James Bond film, Die Another Day.
Lennard Hoornik, Corporate Vice President and Global Head of Marketing, Sony Ericsson comments, ‚We are excited to announce the continuation of our relationship with the James Bond films and unveil James Bond’s new phone for this year – the limited edition version of our C902 Cyber-shot phone. With the rich array of content on the C902 Titanium silver limited edition, fans of the secret agent will only get more James Bond with Sony Ericsson.‚
