Sony Ericsson's clamshell 3G handset

Mobile phones

More Vodafone 3G handsets. This time it’s Sony Ericsson’s turn. The V800 has a rotating 1.3-megapixel camera with an integrated flash for taking night shots. (It’s not clear if you can also use it for shedding some light on night time video calls, however.)The clamshell design is slimmer that Sony Ericsson’s previous 3G behemoth, the red Z1010. We’re quite partial to that nice flared bottom, which helps to make the big barrel camera look less ungainly. It’s got a small external colour screen, Bluetooth and Sony’s Memory Stick Duo expansion card slot. We’re hoping that, like the Japanese, we get the choice of three different colours as well, but we’re not holding our breath.
