The Sony Ericsson C702 is a higher-mid-range candybar handset. It has several different releases, the C702i, C702a and C702c. The latter two are the North American and mainland Chinese releases, respectively. It must be noted that only the C702i has 3G capabilities, even though all of them are quad-band receptive on the 2G network. The C702's other main feature is a GPS receiver which automatically geotags photographs. The camera is 3.15-megapixels and has autofocus, video capture and LED flash. There is also a secondary videocalling camera as well as mp3 player with track recognition. Internal memory is 160MB, and this can be expanded with M2 memory sticks up to 4GB. Also included is the NetFront Internet browser, picture editor and blogger, and stereo FM radio. The screen is large, at 2.2"-diagonal, and the whole phone is shock-, dust-, and splash-resistant, and is somewhat targeted at those who will use their phone outdoors often.
