James Bond will carry Sony Ericsson C902 in next flick

Oh, come on. Lets say, for some crazy reason, Sony Ericsson was the only company that made phones in the Bond universe, nullifying all non-SE options. You really think Bond would sport a half-year-old candybar over, say, the Xperia X1 in the next movie, Quantum of Solace? Bollocks.

However, the C902 gives them an advantage the unlaunched Xperia X1 does not: tie-in promotions. Timed with the release of the movie, Sony Ericsson will be doing a limited release of the Titanium Silver C902 Bond uses in the flick. It’s all the same under the hood, just preloaded with a bunch of Bond content (screensavers, wallpapers, etc.), wrapped up under a new hue.

This continues the running trend of SE handsets in Bond flicks: P900 and T68i got some screen love in 2002’s Die Another Day, and the K800i was rereleased in silver for Casino Royale. Look for this one on the shelves come November.
