Sony Ericsson K850i gets unboxed


Sony Ericsson's K850i candybar is likely going to be the subject of intense scrutiny around here, representing one of the company's first volley of North American 3G handsets -- and, oh yeah, there's that bit about a possible AT&T launch, too. It ain't a smartphone, but the 5 megapixel lens slapped on the back catapults it into high-end territory anyhow -- so we're delighted to see a few finally floating around in retail channels after the phone's June announcement. Boy Genius Report is in the process of putting the K850 through the proverbial ringer; we're digging what we're seeing so far (automatic lens open / close is pretty nifty, we have to admit) but we'll have to wait until we see a full rundown before we start jumping to conclusions. Of course, here's the million-dollar question: is it an N95 killer in the unlocked, US 3G market?
