Sony Ericsson Yari

Sony Ericsson Yari is a look-a-like phone to Sony Ericsson W715 Walkman phone. Both are similar in physical aspects but one thing that separates Yari from other Sony Ericsson hansets is the motion sensitive gaming feature.


Till now we have been hearing about Nokia phones (N-Gage) which provide quality gaming features, but here we have an exciting new phone by Sony Ericsson. Yari basically uses different techniques to provide users with a thrilling feel while they are gaming. The hidden sensors in its bezel identify body movements along with gesture controls and accelerometers that create a stimuli while you are gaming.

Yari is also equipped with a new Gaming Carousel menu which provides access to desktop for downloading different games.Sony Ericsson have ensured that Yari is a complete gaming phone and for this they offer a portable stand which holds Yari upright while playing games.

Sony Ericsson have also done well with Yari when we view it as an overall cell phone. It supports 3G as well as quad-band GSM networks along with GPS system. Yari also has a 5 mega-pixel camera with auto focusing, auto face detection and geo-tagging features. Unfortunately, there is no flash light for Yari.

In all, Sony Ericsson Yari is a fabulous phone to have. It will be availble in markets somewhere around Q4 2009 for an estimated price of $558 (unlocked).

  3. It seems Sony Ericsson Yari has nice and decent features but it surely does not have an exterior to show off…

  5. I like the phone. Features are awesome and looks are ok. Overall, Yari flows smooth

  6. No doubt Sony Ericsson have put up a decent show in the form of Yari but its wrong to say that it gives a though competition to N-Gage. Nokia is Nokia!
