Sony Ericsson's Wilma / K800 / K790 Cyber-shot phone gets official

Ahhh Wilma, you have arrived at last. Sony Ericsson just announced their K800 and K790 (pictured) cellphones; their first to be tagged with Cyber-shot branding letting you know there's some good digicam lovin' on the inside. True to the name, these handsets bring a big 3.2 megapixel camera with flash and lens cover, dedicated shutter button, auto red eye reduction, PictBridge support, image stabilization, and a brand new feature called BestPic -- press the shutter once and get 9 full quality snaps; 4 before and 4 after the actual image you captured all presented as icons on the display. You select the best image(s) from the bunch to keep. The handsets differ in network coverage with the K800 going dual-mode UMTS/GPRS while the K790 goes tri-band EDGE with the K790a and K790i destined for the Americas with support for 850/1800/1900 and 900/1800/1900 MHz respectively. The K800 also features a second, front mounted camera for video conferencing. No surprises from the specs we already saw, but if feels good to run 'em down again: 2.0-inch QVGA 262K TFT display, 64MB internal flash memory with Memory Stick Micro M2 expansion slot, Bluetooth 2.0, an RSS reader, video recording and playback, Music Player supporting MP3/AAC, and RDS FM radio all in a 106 x 47 x 18/20 mm (4.1 x 1.8 x 0.7/0.78 inch) "Velvet Black" package. You'll have to keep lusting a bit longer though, 'cause these won't hit globally until Q2. Many more pix after the break.
