Sony Ericsson's mirror magic
Sony Ericsson is set to launch the Z610, a 3G handset with a ‘magic’ external display that appears and disappears.
The display illuminates when the user receives a text message or a phone call and disappears when not in use. The handset has a mirror finish and comes equipped with a two-megapixel camera, MP3 player, expandable memory and Bluetooth. It also supports push-email and has a picture blog application to allow users to share photos via websites.
The Z610 marks Sony Ericsson's latest foray into the fashion handset market. As is typical for the manufacturer, the device features relatively high-end specifications despite being targeted at the style market.
The handset will ship in a choice of black, pink or blue and is expected to be available by the end of September.
