After one and a half weeks of frustration with the UPS (I might turn my frustration into another blog post when I have a chance), my Sony Ericsson c902i has arrived to my work place. You have no idea how happy I was and still am, when I unwrapped my new phone. As far as I know, the c902i is not available from any service provides such as Rogers, Fido or Telus. I am not sure about the US but this 3G phone has been available in Europe and Asia for quite some time. We, in America, are always the last group of people to get our hands on the newest gadgets.
The reason why I purchased the c902i is the fact that it has the looks of the K850i which I was extremely close to getting towards the end of last year. I changed my mind because it was just too bulky, specifically how “thick” it is. The c902i fits me perfectly because it has relatively the same design with its blueish lights but packaged in a much slimmer, thinner and glossy black body surrounded by matte black/silver. And it also has a 5 megapixel Cyber-shot camera as well.
Sony Ericsson has also released a James Bond edition which features an attractive titanium silver color housing and are offering free titanium rings with the purchase of the phone , obviously you have to pay more. With the sexiness of the c902i along with the free ring, this looks to be a great value for your money.

I will divide up the review into parts and I will write about my impression of the c902i as I go.
First thing first I don’t like is the box. Yes I know why should I even care, its just a box its not like I will be calling people and carrying around with it. But I’m a presentation person, the previous two Sony Ericsson phone boxes (T616 and K790i) were much nicer compare to this one. I’m not sure if its because its boxed by Vodafone or not. As you can see from the picture, you can clearly see the k790i box is nicest among the three.
In terms of size, it is a clear win for the relatively new c902i. It is as tall as the K790i and taller than the T616 by a little. The T616 is the slimest of all but not by much. And finally the c902i beats both phones hands down with its ultra thin design. Although it is the heaviest among all three but that is because the T616 and K790i are very light weight to begin with therefore the extra weight on the c902i isn’t too noticeable.
Tomorrow, I will play around with the phone’s interface. Stay tuned!
