Just before MWC 2010 started on Monday , Sony Ericsson had a press conference at Opium Mar in Barcelona and we brought you some live pictures from the event. One of the handsets which was interesting for the newly announced Sony Ericsson Aspen which is a Touchscreen QWERTY running on Windows Mobile 6.5.3
After the explosive rise of touchscreen phones in the market , We are so used to touch that sometimes we even tap the screens on non-touch phones unintentionally. Looks like Sony Ericsson wants to capitalize on this and the the Aspen promises the best of the both the Touch and QWERTY worlds. It packs a 3.2 Megapixel Camera and a 3.5mm audio jack.
More pics after the jump
The handset might be a good buy if you rely on Microsoft services such as Exchange. But the only deal breaker for some users might be the fact that the Sony Ericsson Aspen runs on Windows Mobile. It supports Quad Band GSM networks and Dual band3G . It makes use of panels for quick access to frequent phone functions and it looked quit attractive
The Aspen is part of the Greenheart family of phones from Sony Ericsson and is made from recycled plastic and it comes with a really small box , eco-friendly charger and no paper user guide !
PS: We have a hands on video coming up shortly
