Excerpt: July 2006 By Olav Hellesø-Knutsen Print Sony Ericsson K800i Cyber-shot is the official name of the new camera phone from Sony Ericsson. The model was announced in March 2006 and should now be available in most markets. The K800 is a 3G (UMTS) video phone and has an impressive 3.15 mega pixel camera being the first model to wear the Cyber-shot name which originally was used on the high class digital cameras from Sony.
