Sony Ericsson W51S
Japanese carrier KDDI will be the first to the feature the W51S phone by Sony Ericsson. The most arresting feature about the phone is probably its exterior, which like the Z310 has glowing white icons, but in this case hides them behind a less reflective surface. The screen meanwhile is 2.7 inches, and its 2.01-megapixel camera plays and records QVGA video. Internal storage is a sizable 120MB but can be further supplemented by Memory Sticks. And while no wireless connections are mentioned other than IrDA, the phone will have Internet access, through which users can lock a phone and delete its contents should it be stolen. Talk time is 3.5 hours with 270 hours of standby. No exact release information has been shared, but it is a part of KDDI's Spring Collection. Colors will include black, gold and pink.
