From the forum:
Simple sophistication’ sums up the Sony Ericsson T250,The stylish metal finish of this compact phone gives it a premium feel that up until now has been the preserve of high end models.
Add to this a feature set that makes it easy to stay connected, either with friends or the latest news, and you have the perfect partner for keeping in-touch with style.

“Now you can have quality design and finish in a phone without the high-end price tag,” says Steve Walker, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Ericsson. “We realise that some people want just a straightforward phone, but we don’t feel that this should equate to straightforward design. Although technically the new T250 focuses on doing just the basics well, its advanced design clearly resembles the more premium T650.”

Of course, the T250 is not only about style. For easy communication the T250 has a speakerphone that lets you share your call with others in the room, predictive text input for fast text and picture messaging, and an in-phone calendar that comes in handy for noting key dates or appointments.

Based on consumer feedback, an built-in FM Radio is included on the T250 for music and news around the clock. The T250 kit includes a stereo handsfree headset. To complete the picture, an on-board camera allows you to capture your favourite moments, share them with your friends, or save them in the phone’s memory as a pocket photo album.

With a colour choice of Black or Silver, it’s difficult to determine which is the more elegant. Whichever you choose, though, be sure that the T250 will get you noticed.
The Sony Ericsson T250 will be available in two versions (GSM/GPRS 900/1800 and GSM/GPRS 850/1900) and will ship in selected markets from Q3 2007.

so the call end buttons are back just just like T68i... nice thing, even better than once of my "durablest" SE phone; K300 except memory. but i'm devoted to the SE P1 which suits the best thing for me. tech,style and intuitiveness.....=D

Wow classy design

Is this the lovechild of the recent SE-Sagem agreement? if so, its quite nice... although UI may be a little retro-ish due to the call and end buttons, but what can you expect from a budget phone... this feels nice as a secondary textphone!

i like the design, but sounds like a good way of marketing a cheap product for SE. agree with the need for a C key, but this seems to be a phone for the individual who hasnt evolved apposable thumbs and still drags their knuckles on the ground. "We realise that some people want just a straightforward phone" btu if this is the case what is the need for a camera at all if it is just for txtn and calling? i can see the point of a cheaper phone, but i think the purpose is confused.

ref lastikci ya man you are rite se is gaining in technology but loosing their looks. k750 and w550 is dam good looking.

Did old Ericsson phones have a "C" button? They had "Yes", "No" and "Clear" as far as i remember from my GH688.

Although i didn't quite like the new design (K750 - W810 - W550 looked better in my opinion), it looks better than K550 or K810 or this year's other SE's. Let's see how they can compete with other manufacturers..
