Sony Davenport Phone

Sony-Ericsson's recently launched W880 Walkman phone may have been just the tip of the spear in the company's new design philosophy, according to an anonymous source. Where the current phone was codenamed after Japanese tennis champ Ai Sugiyama, a new model has been given the nickname "Lindsay" based on the American player Lindsay Davenport. The new model would exchange the candybar form of the W880 for a slider design while keeping the 2-megapixel camera and a body registering at an uncharacteristically thin 14mm (0.55 inches). Lights along the side and designer colors (including green) would stress its exotic design.

The phone may be built with the US in mind, based on the source's information. In contrast to the Europe-savvy W880, the Lindsay would drop 3G wireless support and thus be more at ease within the 2.5G-focused networks of US providers. This would likely involve removing the videoconferencing camera at the front of the current model. An announcement is planned for 2007, the tip said. [via MobileWhack]
