Sony Ericsson has a nifty new prototype named the Aino, named after a Finnish mythology creature. The smartphone features an 8 megapixel camera, syncs to your PC via 3G or WiFi and (here’s where the nifty part comes in) connects to your PS3, no matter where you are. This version will only show you what content is on it but hey, it’s a start. The Aino comes with a Bluetooth headset, headphones that light up and a wireless dock.

Add to that stereo speakers, dedicated music keys and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Plans are to release the Hikaru phone before Q2 although no exact date or price has been mentioned, but our best guess is that will be high-end as well.

Sony Ericsson new CyberShot slider phone was oddly enough code-named Frances. (We wonder if this will start a trend.) The C903 has 2.4-inch TFT screen with 320x240p resolution, A-GPS, an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and active lens cover. Included are capabilities in other CyberShot phones such as PhotoFix, Face Detection and Smile Shutter. Available in a choice of 2 colors, Frances should make its debut at the end of Q2.

We got pretty excited before we knew this was only a prototype. Created by French Designer Vincent Palicki, it shows a USB port going into a Sony Ericsson Phone, an extremely clever idea. How nice to be able to download files, videos, and/or photos with only a flash drive. We think perhaps this will lead to the concept of doing the same with handhelds. Come to think of it, we could attach all those very cool USB gadgets to our phones like mini-Christmas trees or mini-fans on a cold day.

Sony Ericsson has released the MBW150 Bluetooth 2.0 Watch. One generation removed from it’s 100 model, it is made of stainless steel and crystal and comes in Classic, Executive, and Sporty designs. Designed to go with their Walkman phone, the timepiece features a remote control for the music player and shows what track is playing on the watch face. The device vibrates when you receive a call, can trace IDs, and has mute and reject buttons. We suspect that in the near future, this watch will become the phone.
