Sony Ericsson T68i

Here’s the best photo I could find of Sony Ericsson’s first handset, the T68i — via this Chinese image site.

This particular phone is legendary enough to merit a rather substantial Wikipedia entry. I already knew that this refreshed Ericsson T68 was the first product of the Sony-Ericsson partnership, but here’s something I didn’t know:

You can check the specs on GSM Arena here and read Steve Punter’s review from December, 2001 here. Oh, and apparently MobleBurn was publishing reviews back then too!

Note that I only had this phone for about a week in May of 2003, so my chapter about it may end up being as brief as this database entry.
