Sony Ericsson Disappoints from
Product Perspective"> Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB presented one of the most disappointing booths at CTIA from a new product perspective. Although it offered a few, mostly noninteresting handsets, the only really captivating device was the $800 P900.
For some reason, most of the booth was taken over with fun, games andfor reasons I cannot fathomAIBO. Perhaps Sonys robotic dog will be getting his own cell phone soon?
Also, inexplicably, a DJ was spinning soft music. Why, I cannot say. It added little to the sense of excitement.
The company was showing off one interesting addition to the phone line-up. This gaming add-on turns a Sony Ericsson phone into a poor mans GameBoy. I guess its the companys 2004 answer to the delayed PSP.
Thats all for now. In Part Two, we wrap up Nokia, Motorola, LG, Kyocera and more.

The phone boasts a nice, big screen, but Im a little concerned about the fragility of the unit. I dropped one over the weekend, and the front cover broke offturning $800 into zero in seconds.
