Sony-Ericsson Bravia Phone

Sony-Ericsson is hoping to expand its range of Bravia-titled phones into Europe, according to a source at the Esato forums. While the poster has consciously avoided posting many specific details to protect himself, he reveals that the phone will be the first from the Japanese and Swedish partnership to support DVB-H, the mobile digital TV standard for Europe. To reflect this, the currently unnamed device will be the first in the continent to use Sony's Bravia engine for improved video quality and should have a large, 240x432 widescreen that slides to reveal the keypad. No launch details have been given.

Bravia phones have already enjoyed success in Sony's native Japan, where both the SO903i and W44S have already used the Bravia engine. A version of the latter is rumored for a European launch next year.
