Sony Ericsson will debut the s710 camera phone in early January 2005 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV, U.S.

The camera has a dual design: held horizontally, the phone looks like a digital camera and serves as one, plus it records video clips. But held vertically, it has the look, feel, and function of a cellular phone.

The device has a mini-organizer, plays games and music, and can be used for messaging. The s710 has a 180-degree swivel open design that converts the handset from a mobile phone to a digital camera. The resolution on the camera is 1.3 megapixels, which creates 4- by 6-in prints.

The user interface for the camera is similar to the one Sony uses in its digital cameras. The phone is a tri-band device that can receive calls on the GSM, GPRS, or EDGE networks. (
