Reducing security risks from open source software

James Bond always has the latest hardware on hand to defeat evil-doers, but the latest crime-tackling tech in the new Quantum of Solace film is a limited edition Sony Ericsson C902.

Sony Ericsson's James Bond C902

Unfortunately, the phone hasn’t been stocked with a Micro SD card that also acts as plastic explosive or Bluetooth that lets Bond blow-up other mobiles with the feature switched on.

Instead, Sony Ericsson has decked the talker out in “Titanium Silver” and pre-loaded the internal memory with a host of James Bond goodies, such as: screensavers, ringtones and a trailer for the film. A Memory Stick Micro (M2) that’s bundled with the phone package also contains five wallpapers and a James Bond game.

The phone still features a five-megapixel camera equipped with a 2.5x digital zoom and face detection. Users also get quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge connectivity and 3G HSDPA.

Sony Ericsson is set to ship the James Bond C902 later this year, probably around November when the film launches. Pricing information still seems to be classified. In the meantime, a Register Hardware review of the original Sony Ericsson C902 is available here.
