SE launches two new handsets


Sony Ericsson has announced two new handsets and further details on its 12.1 megapixel cameraphone that it announced in February.

The Aino (pictured right) handset includes Media Go software, enabling users to transfer, play and organise their media from a PC using Wi-Fi.

Connecting the phone up with a PlayStation 3 enables users to access media content anywhere with Remote Play, as initially designed for the Sony PSP. This means they will have control and media access of media content on their PS3, including TV with the PlayTV service. Users will then be able to pause and record live TV from a range of free channels via Aino.

The Aino also comes with a 3-inch widescreen display, 8.1-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, bundled wireless stereo headphones and a matching charger stand. It will be available in Q4 in black or white.

The Yari (pictured left) is aimed at gamers and includes gesture gaming, meaning users can control games purely from their own movement. It will come with a mix of preloaded motion games and standard ones.

Also included is a five megapixel camera, GPS, stereo speakers and music player. It will go on sale in early Q4 in black and white.

The Satio (pictured centre), which was introduced as the ‘Idou’ at Mobile World Congress in February, comes with a 12.1 megapixel camera and Xenon flash, with the latest PlayNow content that includes video clips, movies and games.

It also includes a 3.5-inch touchscreen is the first Sony Ericsson phone to use a Symbian operating system and Nokia’s Series 60 5th edition user interface.

The Satio will be available from October in a choice of black, silver and ‘Bordeaux’.
