Summary: Design Sony Ericsson C702 doesn't stand out from the crowd and those that have previously had a Cyber-shot series handset won't be surprised by its looks. The classic bar factor, the almost identical curves, shapes and lines make C702 a totally “boring” device. Its rather big size (106 x 48mm) and thickness (15.5mm), as well as its weight (105g including battery), don’t recommend it as a pocket-sized device.
Summary: We love the number of different functions offered on the Sony Ericsson Cybershot C702i, in particular its camera and geo-tagging facility. In fact, we were so impressed, we're prepared to overlook our minor gripes about its design and recommend this phone.
Summary: Our C702 unit was loud enough to break our preconceptions about muffled sound of ruggedized handsets. The phone’s vibra alert turned out to be average strength-wise, though. The reception quality of the C702 was quite good – we got strong signal levels in most places and didn’t notice any significant differences from other contemporary solutions.
The C702 is set to arrive this June at a price of 320 Euro.

First, the back is difficult to remove.
Excerpt: Joining the Cyber-shot lineup of photo-majoring cameraphones, the Sony Ericsson C702 has been given a more resilient, outdoors-and-active kind of twist than others in the snap-specialist range.
