Sony Ericsson Naite (Unlocked)

 

Sometimes you just need a phone. Maybe you're traveling internationally, or your AT&T or T-Mobile contract isn't up yet. The Sony Ericsson Naite is a great affordable, unlocked phone for folks who need a GSM voice and multimedia phone, to use either...

Classy style. Good voice quality. Well designed UI. Excellent music and video playback. Inexpensive for an unlocked world phone

No GPS. Proprietary headphone jack. Weak speakerphone

Sony Ericsson scores with the Naite, a powerful unlocked phone that works on high-speed networks here and overseas and rings in at a tempting price.

Sony Ericsson Naite (unlocked) review:

 

It may sound like an object in an interplanetary tongue, but the Sony Ericsson Naite (pronounced nigh-tay) has its roots sunk deep in Earth. Like the Samsung Blue Earth , the Samsung Reclaim , and the Motorola Renew , the Naite is billed as an...

Sony Ericsson's Naite offers a clear, sharp display with smooth navigation and plenty of organizational and multimedia goodies under the hood. E-mail, an FM music player, and music, photo, and video-editing tools stand out.

A nonstandard headphone and charger jack, slightly cramped dial pad, and terrible speakerphone don't do the Naite any favors. Some of the best multimedia features like video calls don't work in North America. Associating a contact with a photo is less...

The esoterically named Sony Ericsson Naite may classify as a feel-good eco-phone, but its packed feature and toolsets make it a good pick for socialites shopping in the midlevel range--daintier carbon footprints notwithstanding.

Sony Ericsson Naite Review

 

The Sony Ericsson Naite (J105i) is part of the company's GreenHeart initiative. The GreenHeart mantra is that your mobile phone can match your priorities in being responsible and conscientious with regards to energy efficiency. In that vain, the Naite...

Sony Ericsson Naite

 

In terms of raw specifications, the Naite is not very exciting. It has a 2.2" 240 x 320 pixel display, a 2 megapixel camera, an FM radio, stereo Bluetooth and 3.5G data. The Naite also drops Sony's proprietary Memory Stick Micro expansion and uses...

Sony Ericsson Naite mobile phone

 

Sony Ericsson's first GreenHeart mobile phone is eco-friendly but basic

Made from recycled plastic; charger minimises power consumption; solid design; good keypad and controls; 3G; Facebook, Twitter and YouTube apps pre-installed

Price; no 3.5mm headphone jack; rear cover can be tricky to remove

Sony Ericsson's first GreenHeart mobile phone is a solid yet largely uninspiring handset. Its green credentials are admirable, but it is expensive for a low-end mobile phone.

Sony Ericsson Naite review

 

Manufactured from recyclable materials, shipping without a physical user guide and featuring a charger that minimises power consumption, the Sony Ericsson Naite is the first "GreenHeart" mobile phone.

The Sony Ericsson Naite is a solid yet largely uninspiring handset. Its green credentials are admirable, but it is expensive for a low-end mobile phone.

Sony Ericsson Naite Review

 

The Sony Ericsson Naite is a 'green' phone - not literally, it's actually silver and black and looks a lot like Nokia's popular 6700 classic. But it's purported to be environmentally friendly as part of…
