LG and Sony Ericsson phones hit the market
LG and Sony Ericsson have released new handsets this month, livening up the post-Christmas contract market.
Sony Ericsson’s W890i, a Walkman phone with a 3.2-megapixel camera, has been taken by all five networks and is being promoted in Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4u stores.
Meanwhile, rival manufacturer LG has released the KF600, a touch-screen handset with a camera as powerful as the Sony Ericsson device and its own MP3 player to match.
The most striking feature of the split-screen LG device is its ‘InteractPad’, a touch-screen keypad that offers different keys depending on the function.
While the KF600 is available in black, the W890i has two exclusive colour variants, including mocha brown with O2 and black with Vodafone.
