Even though I currently use a Nokia, deep down I’m still a fan of both Sony Ericsson and the flip-phone form factor. Unfortunately SE’s flip-phone offerings to date have been typically far too large to nicely fit into a pocket (especially in the era of the RAZR) but it looks like things are improving.
Falling under the Bravia product line of all things this new Sony phone has some pretty impressive features. It’s a 3G FOMA model with a QVGA screen that actually uses the same “Reality MAX” buzzword-technology as Sony’s HD Bravia TVs do. The phone also functions as an MP3 player with a usable 1GB of internal storage but a very impressive 45 hours of playback time when in walkman mode. It even has a 3.2 megapixel camera with built-in image stabilization for the photographically challenged.
