The T700 offers a 2in screen, 3.2 megapixel camera with 3 x digital zoom, and more importantly for us, some attention to sonic detail.
As well as the headphone output there's a set of stereo speakers attached complete with Bluetooth connectivity for wireless music transfer.
AAC and MP3 ringtones are available while you also get track ID information, Sony's 'Play Now' technology and an FM radio.
The T700 comes with the Sony Ericsson PC Suite, a USB cable for transfers and a 512MB memory stick micro card, so there's room for later expansion with a larger card.
Available in 'early Q4', the phone is available in black on silver, black on red and shining silver colours.
