With a design inspired by the Nordic light, the amazingly thin Sony Ericsson T650i fuses illumination effects with a stainless steel finish and scratch-proof mineral glass. Measuring just 12.5mm thin (0.49 inches), it's packed full of communication features to keep you connected and entertained wherever you roam: tri-mode GSM, connectivity for 2100 MHz 3G networks (found in Europe and Asia), Bluetooth with stereo music streaming, and an integrated FM radio. Other features include a 3.2-megapixel camera with video capture, Access NetFront web browser with RSS feeds, and Memory Stick Micro (M2) expansion slot.
This slim 3G phone conceals a high performance feature set, including 3.2-megapixel camera, full web browser, and digital audio player.
This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider and it provides tri-band connectivity (900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz). It does not come with a SIM card, and it requires that you provide a SIM card for usage with your selected service provider. When paired with a compatible 3G network that uses UMTS 2100 MHz connectivity (found in Europe and Asia), you'll enjoy a variety of feature-rich wireless services with speeds up to 384 Kbps--from data connectivity to your office to multimedia streaming, and take advantage of simultaneous voice and data services. In the United States and foreign territories where 2100 MHz 3G networks are not available, you'll continue to receive data service via EDGE network (depending on network compatibility).
The 1.9-inch display has a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and support for 256K colors. Scratch-proof mineral glass is placed directly onto the screen, which makes the colors more intense, improves visibility in bright environments, and widens the viewing angle of the screen up to 170 degrees. The unique illumination effects on the keypad and the sides of the phone interact with animations on the screen. As these animations move across the display they set off waves of light around the keypad, which stand-out against the reflective stainless steel finish.
The back of the phone includes the autofocus 3.2-megapixel camera, which is protected by a lens cover and features a xenon flash. Camera features include choices of four resolutions--from 640 x 480 pixels (VGA) to 2048 x 1536 pixels (3MP)--panorama mode, red-eye reduction, spot metering, a macro setting, and image stabilization. The camcorder function enables you to capture 176 x 144-pixel resolution video clips (QCIF) in MPEG4 format.
The T650i's mineral glass display is scratch-resistant and crystal-clear even in bright sunlight.
When it comes to keeping you entertained, the T650i is a natural. Its media player lets you to listen to your favorite tunes wherever you are, and thanks to the latest Bluetooth technology it's possible to stream music directly from your phone to a headset.

T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users. It also includes such PIM tools as a calendar, calculator, to-do list, stopwatch, and alarm clock.

The phone's voice activated dialing makes calling your favorite contacts as easy as saying their names, while the built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear.
