Tuesday, November 6th should be a great day for the Sony Ericsson faithful
The company is rumored to release 3 new handsets, each with a unique feature set that is sure to please and impress. First up is the SE W890i, a 3G-capable Walkman phone that sports an accelerometer, 3.2 megapixel camera, and a new version of Sony?s Walkman media player software. Next on the block is the W380i, a mid-level Walkman phone that will sport a mysterious new feature known as "gesture control" which should allow for some level of media control by way of physical gestures. Nice! Finally, SE will debut the K660i, which is an internet-centric handset designed to allow users to browse the web in both portrait and landscape mode. It also features an on-screen cursor a-la Opera Mini. This is a 3G handset. No word on price point or availability, but we?ll be sure to let you know as soon as anything else surfaces!
The brand will announce three new handsets and a range of Bluetooth accessories. As reported yesterday, there will be two new Walkman phones and one phone in the emotional design category. Check out the details.
W890i: A 3G Walkman phone with accelerometer, it is an upgrade of the W880i. This will have Play Now 4.0 as well as a new version of the Walkman player. There will be a 3.2 megapixel camera onboard.
W380i: An upgrade of the W300i, it will have a new feature called gesture control. I'm not very sure of what it will do, but it will control the Walkman player by some gestures. It is not a 3G phone.
K660i: The USP of this 3G phone will be its web browsing capabilities. It will allow users to browse the web in the landscape mode and will come with a pointer cursor.
