Sony Ericsson’s Aspen is notable for a couple of reasons. First, it’s the latest phone in the GreenHeart line of eco-friendly phones introduced last year. Second, it’s one of the first phones to come out rocking Mictosoft’s updated Windows Mobile 6.5.3. Now you can finally accomplish that dream you’ve always had of multitasking while helping the environment.
A business-friendly candy bar style phone in the same vein as any number of Blackberry’s or Samsung Jack’s of the world, the Aspen features a thin, sleek, and angular design, an integrated QWERTY keyboard, a crystal clear 2.4-inch QVGA TFT touchscreen LCD, 3.2 megapixel camera, A-GPS with Google Maps, 3.5-mm audio jack, Wi-Fi, and a microSD expansion slot. Under the hood, Windows Mobile 6.5.3 (say that three times fast) provides for a more touch friendly Windows experience, Support for multitouch can now be enabled, and gestural actions like flicking and panning are now a lot more responsive. It really comes in handy when you need to dig through menu’s trying to check your email, surf the web, keep up with all your social networking sites or listen to music.
You’ll be able to pick one up in Iconic Black or White Silver sometime in the next few months. Price and exactly where these will be dropping has yet to be determined.
