Report from the launch of the new Sony Ericsson W600 and Z520. Hands-on report and photos from the launch event in New York City.
Today in New York and other cities around the world, Sony Ericsson introduced a handful of new phones. Most of the basic info was leaked a few weeks ago, although the rumor mills didn't quite nail the specs.
The new additions to the lineup include the company's second Walkman phone, and first quad-band phone, both for the U.S. market. Those hoping for the company's next smartphone or a 3G phone for the U.S. were disappointed, but overall, the new arrivals seem to be well-rounded models with extra features that will appeal to many.

The two new models for the U.S. are the W600 (left) and Z520 (right).
The W600 is a swivel-style model, and Sony Ericsson's first Walkman model for the U.S. In an unusual twist, those of us in the States get the better model, and Europe gets a trimmed-down version, in the form of the S600. (Although the lucky Europeans do have the snazzy W800.)
The Z520 is a solid update to the Z500 currently released with Cingular. The big news here is the addition of both quad-band GSM roaming and Bluetooth.
