The Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot family welcomed two new members in February. We already gave you a glimpse of the 5-megapixel C902, and now junior has the stage all to itself in our Sony Ericsson C702 review. The two sharpshooters clearly have different targets. The yummy camera features like Auto Rotate, BestPic and Photo Flash, along with the TV Out, were obviously reserved for the 5MP Cyber-shot C902. Sony Ericsson C702 on the other hand is keen to impress with GPS and splash and dust resistance. Its 3-megapixel camera takes advantage of geotagging, and features face detection, red-eye reduction, autofocus and dual LED.
The C702 also bundles up HSDPA 3.6 Mbps, FM radio with RDS, Media center, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP and the respectable 160MB of built-in memory.

Sony Ericsson C702 is a new Cyber-shot bar. Enough has been said already about the new Sony Ericsson naming convention. Suffice to say, it’s now C for Cyber-shot.
Another interesting fact is that this is the first splash and dust resistant Sony Ericson handset. The C702 also features the GPS-based Tracker sports application. Clearly, it’s a phone for the youth and the sports minded. We’re reviewing the Cool Cyan variety (yeah right, someone had to tell us it’s cool), but there’s a Speed Black alternative for the not so easily trusting.
