Sony Ericsson Vivaz

What? The latest touchscreen multi-media phone to challenge the iPhone's dominance.

What does it do?
The Vivaz's unique selling point is it's fantastic video camera, which allows you to capture everything that's going on around you in super high-defintion.

The stills camera is also substantially better than the iPhone, with 8.1Megapixels, compared with the iPhone's 3, as well as useful features like smile shutter and face recognition - and a xenon flash.

Sony Ericsson are aiming for the same "fun" market as the iPhone and have created a PlayNow marketplace, where you can buy games, music and applications.

What we like
Very light - just 97g - and a really nice shape
Very attractive
Camera and video camera are exceptional

What we don't like
For most people, there will be one big issue - it's not an iPhone!

Price?
Free on monthly call plans of £30 or more.
Available in Cosmic Black from carphonewarehouse.com

Rating?
If you want a phone for fun, this could be for you. Great camera, HD video facility and easy access to all your social networking sites.
