New smart phones
Sony Ericsson has unveiled two new "smart" phones, the M600 and the P990. Styled much like the iPod, the M600 is a Symbian OS-based phone equipped with basic versions of Micrsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and security software. The 15mm thick phone reportedly will not come with a camera or wi-fi in order to keep prices down. The P990 (pictured below) will ship with push email support, digital camera functions, WLAN (802.11b and 3G), 64MB memory stick, numerical flip-down keyboard, and a business card reading function. Both phones are expected to ship in the second quarter this year.
