Sony's Ericsson's super-garish S001 8megapixel Cyber-shot mobile – with OLED screen

Cameras, Mobile phones

It would appear that “bling” culture is alive and well in Japan, where Sony Ericsson has revealed its latest OTT camera-slash-phone-slash-TV-slash-media-player-slash-ladies-fashion-accessory hybrid mobile conversation piece.

Boasting a decent eight megapixel Cyber-shot-branded camera, the S001 slider features a TV tuner because the Japanese are totally into watching TV on their mobiles, Bluetooth, a GPS receiver and the screen is a whopper – a 3″ OLED display that manages an extremely high 480 x 854 resolution.

It’s available exclusively in Japan at the moment, so don’t go getting too excited.
