Sony Ericcson Jalou phone
Sony Ericcson has debuted its latest clamshell handset, the Jalou, along with a Dolce&Gabbana special edition. The handsets are designed for the style-conscious, with a small form-factor measuring 73mm long. The two-inch display doubles as a mirror after pressing a dedicated key.
The device features a 3.2-megapixel camera, with support for video recording, along with A-GPS, an integrated FM radio and Bluetooth connectivity. A Walk Mate step counter can be used to keep track of exercise.
The Dolce&Gabbana edition features a rose-colored finish and 24-karat gold plating. The handset ships with three satin bags to protect the phone or hold accessories, as well as a Dolce&Gabbana branded headset with gold accents. The interface also offers a variety of fashion themes and links to gossip blogs.
The Jalou phones are expected to ship sometime in the fourth quarter, although carriers and pricing information have yet to be announced.
