Sony-Ericsson CES 2008

Not content to hold until the Mobile World Congress in February, Sony-Ericsson tonight took the wraps from three phones, all of which are destined to reach US shores. The pictured W350 is unique in the lineup with an unusual flip that covers the keypad when not in use, covering it instead with an extra-simple navigator that gives basic music controls. Despite this, the device measures just 10mm (0.39in) deep, Sony-Ericsson says. It also claims a 1.3-megapixel camera, an FM radio, and the latest Walkman software with AAC and MP3 track support. The device will ship in several black, blue, and white color schemes during the spring and will come packed with a 512MB Memory Stick Micro card. Versions for China, the US, and the world will be available.

Upping the level of performance is the W760; this second Walkman phone switches to a slider form factor and adds 3G Internet access over HSDPA, including for US owners. It also adds true GPS, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and a motion sensor that can be used for gaming as well as to change the interface and media playback to work in landscape mode. Its music emphasis remains in place with integrated stereo speakers as well as a 1GB Memory Stick Micro card bundled along with the device. Sony-Ericsson plans to ship the W760 in the spring.

The Z555 is the Japan/Sweden partnership's sole fashion phone for CES and sports a diamond-like outer shell with a hidden outer OLED to reveal callers without flipping open the phone. It supports motion controls and comes with a 1.3-megapixel camera but is not bundled with any memory cards; it ships first among the lineup and will be ready before the end of March for both American and international buyers.
