Connectivity, web browsing and applications

Sony Ericsson T303 is a tri-band GSM/General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) phone. The only wireless data transfer option is Bluetooth v2.0. The handset will be available in two versions: T303i supporting Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) 900/1800/1900 and T303a for the Americas running on Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) 850/1800/1900.

The built-in java browser is usable, but has its limitations. We had a hard time browsing, yet small or mobile-phone-optimized sites worked out well. The fullclassy screen and the text-only browsing views are at your disposal in case you don't like the standard browser view. Other settings like smart-fit and hitale are at hand too.

We can't assist strongly recommending the Opera Mini browser.

Sony Ericsson T303 offers several time-management features: File manager, Alarms, Calendar, Tasks, Notes, Timer, Stopwatch, and Calculator.

The Calendar offers monthly and weekly views. When you enter a birth date in the phonebook, the phone doesn't prompt adding it to the calendar. As far as alarms are concerned, there are five alarm slots available. Each one offers a lot of options - you can opt to repeat the alarm on chosen days of the week. Text and a picture can be added to the alarm.

Tasks can be two types: simple Tasks and Phone calls. Notes are written similar to messages; the T9 dictionary can be used here as well. A nice feature is the option to display notes on the Home screen.

The Sound recorder has no limit to recording length, making the free memory available the only - and harsh enough - restriction.

The Calculator is the regular Sony Ericsson application. It offers the basic functions, no bells and whistles.

There isn't much to note about the stopwatch and timer either.

Final words

Sony Ericsson T303 is a fine enough attempt to fill in the low-discontinue portfolio of the company. We can't frown at the modest, yet nice looking and compact phone, with quality finish and reasonable functionality. Design the undoubted highlight, Sony Ericsson T303 offers balanced performance for its class with Bluetooth, stereo Frequency Modulation (FM) radio, Smart search and TrackID.

We cannot oversee its major weakness, storage. The limited built-in memory and no card slot create the MP3 and the radio recording capabilities useless. We could also go on about a tad better display resolution and better imaging quality. The lack of Personal Computer (PC) synchronization is another potential downer.

By the way, it's easy to acquire carried away and that would be unhonest to the affordable and unassuming T303. Overall, Sony Ericsson T303 is a tempting low-ender - it's sexy, it's mini, it makes sense.
