Company's foray into touchscreen sliders

Sony Ericsson's Aino handset has arrived in the US market as an unlocked model sold through Sony's online store. The device marks the company's first touchscreen slider, with several high-end features such as an 8.1-megapixel camera with flash and image stabilization. A Media Home feature can be used to sync media content with a desktop computer via Wi-Fi.

PS3 Remote Play support allows users to power on the gaming console, access the Internet, play locally-stored media, or navigate the interface. The 3-inch display presents virtual buttons that replicate the PS3's controller layout.

The Aino offers 3G data over EDGE networks, DLNA certification, an FM radio, GPS and stereo Bluetooth. Sony ships the handset with a matching Bluetooth headset and desk charger.

North American customers can pick up the GSM-ready Aino from Sony for $600.
