This year's 15 most anticipated mobile technologies

From smartphones to mobile operating systems


We've rounded up the 15 most highly anticipated mobile technologies set to appear later this year.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro: sexy and Symbian

One of the new Sony Ericsson 'fabulous five' smartphones, the Vivaz Pro has a full QWERTY keyboard, runs on Nokia's Symbian platform, and features a 3.2in display (360x640-pixel resolution) in a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The slick-looking phone also has a 5.1Mp camera with autofocus and face detection, plus a flash and an image stabiliser, together with video recording capabilities.

I've snapped a few photos with the Vivaz Pro and was impressed with the quality of my images - especially as showcased on the Vivaz Pro's brilliant display.

Sony Ericsson's Vivaz Pro comes with an 8GB microSD card included, but is expandable up to 16GB.

The 3G phone is expected to arrive in the second quarter; pricing is still to be announced.

Docomo's eye-controlled earphones

Japan's Docomo never fails to deliver the most unique technology , and this year's show was no exception.

Though they look like regular earphones, Docomo's eye-controlled earphones have sensors that can track your eye movement.
