Sony Ericsson brings motion sensing games to the mobile
Sony Ericsson F305 handset to include Wii-like motion-sensing technology for games.
Sony Ericsson has unveiled a new games-oriented mobile phone, which comes complete with Wii-like motion sensing capabilities.
The Sony Ericsson F305 includes motion sensor technology to detect movements which are then incorporated into game actions, like bowling a ball. The handset also includes dedicated gaming buttons and stereo speakers to enhance games playing.
Husni Al Assi, general manager of Sony Ericsson MENA commented: "Gaming is no longer something you do on your own. It's about having fun with your friends and interacting with the game. We have used motion sensor technology before in our phones and integrating it into gameplay is a natural progression."
The slider form factor handset has a 176x220 pixel TFT screen, 2 megapixel camera and quad band connectivity, with support for the memory stick micro format.
Sony Ericsson also plans to release a key-ring sized battery pack, which will add to the phone's normal eight hours of talk or playing time. The phone is due for release in Q3 of this year.
