E72 Tour Karma Exclaim LX370 Sony Ericsson Comments  10  

We were able to spend some time with a whole bunch of Sony Ericsson devices. These phones are all very early models, and none of them had working software. We'll reserve final judgement when they have units that are closer to production quality.

Sony Ericsson Satio  

The Satio (pronounced sah-TEE-oh) is meant to be Sony Ericsson's flagship camera phone with 12.1 megapixels on board. To be honest, this version of the device felt flimsy and weak. The materials were low-grade and some of the buttons weren't working at all. It's a fairly long phone, but is reasonably wide from side to side. It is very silvery and the screen was easily smudged. It will run the first version of Symbian Foundation Symbian OS, with Sony Ericsson features built in.

Sony Ericsson Aino  

The Aino (pronounced AY-noh) is a slider with a regular numeric keypad and a touch screen. This is a pretty thick phone, but it has nicely rounded edges. I liked the weight of it, and the slider mechanism felt pretty good. It is also what Sony Ericsson believes will be its flagship phone for consuming media. It can sync with the Sony PS3 gaming station, and even stream content from the PS3.

Sony Ericsson Yari  

The Yari is a more traditional slider and has a 5 megapixel camera and accelerometer-based gaming controls. It looks good, has a good size and weight, and I liked the feel of the numeric keypad.

SE Greenheart  

The Naite (red) and Greenheart (white) phones are both bar-style devices that aim to help reduce carbon output. Neither had working buttons and they were clearly models. The shape and feel of both devices was good overall.
