Sony-Ericsson RAZR Rival

Cellphone partnership Sony-Ericsson is designing an ultra-slim cellphone in response to the RAZR, according to a source speaking to Reuters. To be released in March 2007, the phone -- currently known as "Ai," a tribute to Japanese tennis player Ai Sugiyama -- is described as a recognition by the company that slim handsets have propelled first Motorola and now Samsung to success. Few details of the phone have been revealed, Reuters says, but the source divulged that the Ai will be clothed in black and silver, and should achieve a thickness of only 9.4mm (0.37 inches), noticeably smaller than the RAZR's 14mm (0.55 inches) but thicker than Samsung's recently unveiled V9900. Sony-Ericsson has historically preferred thicker but sometimes more advanced designs such as the K790 and its Walkman series of phones.
