Sony Ericsson has announced that it will be bringing three new phones, all to bring out "new consumer experiences”, the Satio – a phone that allows you to “access to all your media in one place”, the Yari – the “ultimate phone for mobile fun”, and the Aino – a phone with a “unique mobile interface”.
The Satio (above), previously known as the Idou at the Mobile World Congress, features a 3.5-inch touch screen, a 12.1 megapixel camera with Xenon flash and will run on the Symbian operating system – a OS that is typically associated with Nokia.
The phone will support Exchange, have a Facebook and YouTube applications, Bluetooth with Bluetooth Stereo (A2DP), GPS and Google Maps with Turn-by-turn navigation and Wi-Fi support. The phone will come with an 8GB Memory Card.
The phone will come in three colours: black, silver and Bordeaux.
The Yari, however, is modelled on “mobile fun”, allowing you twist, tilt, turn and smash the phone. It will include a A/B button for game shortcut keys, a 5 megapixel camera, a feature called “Music call” – where your music is transmitted in a phone call while you talk, and has a 2.4-inch screen.
The phone will also have FM Radio, a YouTube application, Bluetooth, GPS and Google Maps, Exchange support, geotagging features and Bluetooth stereo (A2DP). The phone will also come thin a 1GB microSD card, along with the 60MB the phone has in internal memory.
It will come in Achromatic Black and Cranberry White.
Finally, the Aino – a phone that sets itself from the others. The phone uses a 3-inch touch screen and allows you to control your PlayStaiton 3 via the Remote Play feature, which was traditionally used by the PSP. It will also grab files from your PC over Wi-Fi via it’s MediaGo feature.
The phone will feature an 8.1 megapixel camera, Bluetooth support with Bluetooth stereo (A2DP), Facebook and YouTube applications, Exchange support, GPS with Google Maps, and Wi-Fi. The phone will include an 8GB microSD card slot, on top of 55MB of the phone’s internal memory.
It will come with wireless stereo headphones, and will comes in black or white.
All the phones are expected to hit selected markets in Q4 2009, and are all quad-band GSM, and supports HSPA 800, 900 and 2100 bands.
