Sony Ericsson today announed two entry level phone models. Sony Ericsson W205 Walkman slider model and the Sony Ericsson S312.

Sony Ericsson S312
Record videos in an instant on the Sony Ericsson S312. From spotting a celebrity on the street, to your friend's dancing in a club, the S312 allows you to capture these moments in two quick and easy steps.

Want to highlight the moment with a picture instead? The two megapixel camera can be used horizontally and with the help of the illuminated imaging shortcuts on the keypad you can change the settings and get the shot you want quicker. Not quite what you were after? Use the integrated Photo fix function to get the best picture quality in one step – picture taking has never been this easy!

Sony Ericsson S312"Capture life's spontaneous moments the easy way with the S312 and its instant video recording." said Quentin Cordier, Marketing business manager at Sony Ericsson. "The S312 also allows you to get organised and keep track of your hectic lifestyle by ensuring that you never miss another birthday or appointment again – store all you important dates, add reminders – then sit back and relax."

Sharing your pictures with friends is easier than ever before. Showcase them on the S312's two inch screen or forward to another mobile phone via Bluetooth. Share your pictures on the web with just a few clicks using picture blogging. Whatever the occasion post photos straight from the phone with just a few clicks – and don't forget to send the web address to others to check out your photography skills.

Take the hassle out of capturing daily moments:

  • Dedicated video camera key – just one click away from recording your best moments
  • Two megapixel camera – can be used horizontally to take picture perfect stills
  • Illuminated imaging shortcuts – take great shots with ease
  • Photo fix – enhance the picture quality and share with family and friends
  • Picture blogging – upload your images to the web with just a few clicks
  • Get organised – calendar, alarm and 1000 contact phone book

Sony Ericsson W205
Get the most out of your best music and favourite radio channels with Walkman player, FM radio and TrackID music recognition. The slider mobile phone comes with a complete package of entertainment features and the power to set up playlists to ensure you have the right music no matter the occasion. Share your tunes with friends via the speaker phone function – if you love your music they will too.

Need a change? Tune into the FM radio to listen to the latest news, music, sport commentary and talk shows. Heard something you like? Use TrackID to name that tune and artist, and you can even record a sample of a song from the radio to use as your new ringtone.

Sony Ericsson W205 Walkman"The W205 is perfect for those who love portable music but have never had the Walkman phone experience." said Timo Maassmann, Marketing business manager at Sony Ericsson. "The W205 is a stylish slider phone allowing you to enjoy your music wherever you are – whether it's on the bus, at college or chilling in the park. You can also share more than music with the 1.3 megapixel camera. Capture the action in stills or video and send them to friends via MMS or via Bluetooth. The multiple phonebook function is an added bonus - share your phone with your family but keep your contacts separate from theirs."

The W205 Walkman
Fill it with pop and make it rock with the following features:

  • Enjoy your music with the Walkman experience
  • FM radio – catch up with the latest news and views
  • TrackID - name that tune at a press of a button
  • 1.3 megapixel camera – capture your favourite moments on film
  • Bluetooth - share your favourite songs, pictures  and video clips, or connect to a wireless headset
  • Multiple phone books – keep your contacts in order if someone needs to borrow your phone

No one can Beat SE design team at original phone design and the "WOW! factor" of each piece. So, the green is in as will every me-too version will soon shout out loud.

Want LED flash with walkman models too you know. And as usual bigger screen please.

Nice design for both S312 and W205 in such low to mid range category phone. I reckon the designer had pushed to the limit to get such an appealing design. Great works!

Looks like a great low end.
