The Sony Ericsson Vivaz also has mobile navigation with AGPS (assisted GPS). The GSM UMTS phone works in 3G networks too, operating in 850/900/1800/1900 MHz frequencies. The 3G phone Vivaz boasts a download speed of 7.1 mob/sacs.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz has dimensions 4.21 x 2.04 x 0.49 inches (107 x 51.7 x 12.5 mm), which is similar to other phones in its class. The Vivaz sports a Lithium polymer battery of 1200 mash.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is also a multimedia phone, capable of playing MPEG4 WMV and Real Video, besides MP3. The Vivaz also has an FM tuner, for those who wish to listen to FM news and music on the go.
The Sony Ericsson Vivaz has WiFI, GPS and Bluetooth connectivity options, besides GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS. The phone runs Nokia’s Symbian mobile operating system. The processor on the Vivaz is a 720 MHz chip, though the company has not revealed the name of the processor maker.

In India, customers of GSM operators like Airtel, Vodafone, MTNL, BSNL, Aircel, Loop Mobile, Reliance Communications and Tata DoCoMo will be able to use the Vivaz on their networks. However, 3G services are still in their infancy in India, with only two state-owned operators BSNL and MTNL offering 3G services. So, potential buyers of the Sony Ericsson Vivaz should be aware that the phone may not work to its full potential in their networks, unless they have a 3G connection from either BSNL or MTNL.
