The Sony Ericsson S312 is an entry-level phone that’s expected to be released in the second quarter of 2009. As usual with Sony Ericsson’s cheaper phones specification wise is not much to write home about however some users will be delighted to know that it does comes with Bluetooth which seems to be something that a lot of manufacturers tend not to have on their cheaper mobile phones.
In terms of other spec it comes with FM radio, a 2-inch TFT display, a speakerphone, and GSM/GPRS/EDGE/900/1800 connectivity. On the side of the phone if you will find a dedicated camera key for the two megapixel camera. One feature I like about Sony Ericsson phones is in the TrackID, which allows you to identify a music track by simply recording a small sample, this in turn then connects to a database which will return the name of the track and the artist.
The video below is a quick overview of what the phone looks like it’s only 36 seconds long so they do not cover any specifications. No pricing is yet available for the S312 but I’m sure this will be available in lots of markets on contract plans and pre-paid pay-as-you-go plans. We can see with the economic conditions worldwide that many cell phone manufacturers are bringing out more entry-level phones as demand rises.
