Sony-Ericsson Z310

Cellphone partnership Sony-Ericsson on Tuesday launched the Z310, a new budget cellphone meant to be stylish without the accompanying high cost. Much like the earlier Z610, the Z310 uses the mirror-finished shell from Sony's Walkman music players to conceal its external display until needed. The effect creates a solid, unbroken surface until caller information or a notification icon must be lit, the cellphone maker says. Lights on the phone can also flash in different colors depending on the caller, helping to identify important calls without first looking at the external display.

Inside, the phone is built precisely for its relatively low-cost audience and sports Bluetooth, EDGE Internet access, and a VGA camera. The phone will ship in black, bronze, and pink shells beginning early next year but has not revealed a price. Profile photos of the handset are available after the jump.
