The high quality of the C905's photos means that we can definitely leave that standalone digital camera at home but what about our entertainment and communication needs?
Well, the Sony Ericsson C905 also offers a built-in MP3 player with a large memory that is also expandable with the use of a Sony Ericsson Memory Stick, so yes, we could also leave the iPod or other MP3 player on charge. The media player comes with an FM Radio, TrackID, Album Art and Play Now, to make the music experience much smoother.
