We're still smarting from the apparent cancelation
of the fabulously powerful K850 from AT&T's 2008 lineup, but as consolation prizes go, the Z750a
ain't bad. That being said, it's solidly seated in the midrange, which seems like an unusual place for Sony Ericsson's very first carrier-launched 3G handset for the US to be; the 2 megapixel camera isn't going to "wow" anyone, and the choice of colorful, ultra-gloss shells definitely limits the phone's appeal to a certain demographic. On the bright side, the music player has an XMB appeal to it -- users of other recent Sony Ericssons will feel right at home with the app -- and it's one of the better built-in players currently available on any handset. The Memory Stick Micro slot makes that player just a little trickier to use for anyone that isn't already using Sony Ericsson kit, but c'est la vie
, we suppose. Check out some shots in our handy dandy gallery here.
Hands-on with the Sony Ericsson Z750a for AT&T
