Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications introduced the T608 today, reportedly the first CDMA phone with integrated Bluetooth(TM) wireless technology available in the U.S.

With Bluetooth technology embedded in the phone, the T608 is able to communicate with other Bluetooth-enabled products by means of a radio link, eliminating the need for a physical connection via cable. Bluetooth wireless technology has been adopted by many leading consumer electronics companies, including personal computer, PDA, and printer manufacturers.

The T608 features Java, enabling users to download ring tones, games, images, and other applications directly into the phone. The phone features a 65,536-color screen and 128 x 128 pixel resolution. The phone's capability to perform simultaneous key press functions caters to gaming enthusiasts, while the speakerphone adds another dimension to the hands-free technology.

The T608 also features a graphical user interface, including a five-way navigational joystick and soft keys, advanced voice operation capabilities, and a wide range of personalization options, including picture caller ID and customizable backgrounds. Sixteen-voice polyphonic sound produces a "layered" tone quality that makes ring tones sound like real songs.

The T608 is small 4.2 x 1.9 x 0.75 in and weighs 3.5 oz. The phone's design incorporates an internal antenna and a long-life lithium battery.

The model will be available in the second quarter of 2003.
