Sony Ericsson has today taken the wraps off its line up of Christmas phones, but in spite of rumours to the contrary there’s no announcement of a replacement for its P800 high-end smart phone.
Instead there’s a camera phone with gaming facilities and two low-end handsets aimed at the budget market. All three models will go on sale in the UK in Q4.
Here are the three models
Clamshell design with a built in camera – designed to take on Sharp’s GX20, Motorola’s V600 and Samsung’s E700. Features include
65k colour screen
Polyphonic sound/Music DJ editor
200 hours standby, six hours talktime

4K colour screen
4.5 hours talk time, 200 hours standby

Embedded and downloadable games
32 Polyphonic sounds
13 hours talktime, 300 hours standby
