My husband and I will be replacing our old phone to a new one since I have been using my old Sony Ericsson K610i for more than three years now and another Samsung mobile phone for my other numberÂ for almost a year. I am not the type of person that is fond of buying new gadgets or mobile phones for pleasure because I only buy these things if it is a necessity or has relevance use to my work just like my husband but we really like innovations and good technologies. We decided to buy a new mobile phone this coming December and he suggested to me the Sony Ericsson Aspen mobile phone. One of the best specifications that I like in this product is that it is environment-friendly phone because some of the materials used in the phoneÂ are the recycled plastics and waterborne paint which help reduce the impact on the environment. Since I am a work-at-home mom with a regular online job, I have choosen the best features of a phone fitted for my needs. The image below is the actual phone design and color that I will buy this December. The information listed below are courtesy of Sony ericsson website and I just make a summary and listed its relevance for my phone review.

Here are the features of Sony Ericsson Aspen that suits me to choose this phone:
- Connectivity – WIFI, USB support, USB mass storage, bluetooth, synchronization, aGPS, microsoft office mobile, google maps, 3.5 mm audio jack, micro USB connector and Gokivo. I very much like most of these features but the top three connectivity that are most important to me are the WIFI, bluetooth and microsoft office mobile.
- Communication – outlook mobile, facebook application, vibrating alert and speaker phone. Outlook mobile and the vibrating alert are the top important feature for me.
- Messaging – text messaging (SMS), predicitive text input, picture messaging (MMS), Instant messaging, Exchange Active sync and email. The top messaging features that are most important for me are the SMS, Instant messaging and email so wherever I am I can have full access and control to all of my messages.
- Web – Web browser Internet Explorer mobile, Pan and zoom, google search, web feeds and bookmarks. Web browser Internet explorer and google search are the top web features for me.
- Camera -Â Digital zoom up to X4, camera – 3.2 mega pixel and a smart contrast. All of the camera features was fine with me.
- Organizer – Windows mobile, task, phonebook, notes, flight mode, calendar, calculator and alarm clock. These features are fine with me as I don’t like too many organizer features that I really don’t use.
- Music - Play Now, Music tones, Windows media player mobile, stereo speakers, media player, bluetooth stereo (A2DP) and album art. I am not really fond of playing music with my mobile phone because my little son will be attracted to it and he might want to play with it and may damage the phone but I would love to use this music features when I am away of just relaxing alone.
- Design - Keyboard – QWERTY, touchscreen, wallpaper animation and picture wallpaper. Since touchscreen are in nowadays for more ease and comfortability, I would love to be using this feature.
The price of Sony Ericsson Aspen phone when I inquire at Sony Ericsson Center at the mall as of September 2010 is approximately Php 16, 000 plus (approximately $364). There are other eco-friendly phones or greenheart phones made by Sony Ericsson and since I support green projects and products, I will definitely buy this phone.
