Sony Ericsson Vivaz hands-on video

Sony Ericsson just uploaded a short hands on video of the Vivaz smartphone. The UI looks smooth and as you can see it also supports Opengl ES 2.0 (TI-OMAP chipset I gues):

Here’s the official Press released:

The new Sony Ericsson Vivaz™ is the latest mobile phone in our new family of communication entertainment phones which launch during the first half of 2010. Communication truly becomes entertainment with high quality HD video allowing consumers to produce and broadcast their very best experiences with the latest video capture and sharing features. Camera API is available to both Symbian and Java code.

- Capture – record video in crisp high resolution (720p). The dedicated video key allows consumers to shoot video instantly with continuous auto focus for the perfect film every time.
- View – review video content in the standby panel or online via Wi-Fi on the 3.2 inch widescreen
- Share – upload via Wi-Fi onto YouTube™ and Picasa in high resolution while still using other features on the handset

The Symbian Camera API includes HD Video capability. A Camera API is also available in Java (video restricted to VGA capability).

Vivaz™ is based on the open Symbian^1 (S60 5th Edition) platform, like Satio™. Users can personalize their communication entertainment experience by downloading applications games and much more from PlayNow™, Sony Ericsson’s popular one-stop content store. Now there’s twice the reason to submit your Symbian & Flash content! Read more.

Adobe™ Flash Lite™ 3.0 is integrated seamlessly into the Vivaz™ UI. The five ‘home screen’ panels first seen on Satio are extended and made more user-configurable, including the ability to select Flash Lite content such as apps, games and animations. The included Twitter app is written using Flash Lite™ 3.0.

Flash Lite, 3.0 introduces Flash Video (FLV) support – FLV is rendered directly by the Flash player rather than by the handset. There are also significant improvements in performance and security. Read more

Project Capuchin support means that Java code can add powerful data logic and API support to Flash content.

Vivaz™ has a 3.2 inch 360 x 640 pixel TFT resistive touchscreen with 16 million color depth. OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0 are supported for superb graphics. The 8.1 megapixel camera has 4x digital zoom and Sony Ericsson’s face and smile detection features. An 8 GB microSD™ card is included; up to 16GB is supported. Connectivity includes Wi-Fi 802.11g and HSPA at 7.2Mbps download; naturally we include seamless integration with Facebook™ and Twitter.
