As if the unique looking Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness wasn't plain enough with its translucent screen and simple telephone keys that are used for input, the joint venture is said to already be working on a sequel that will offer fewer features than the original model. Electricpig spoke with the designer of the first-gen Pureness and he told the site that a sequel is already being planned. He also said that the next version would continue his mission of making the handset simple, stripping down the device to its basic functions as a contrast to the feature packed smartphones that are now being released. Daniel Mauritzson, the phone's designer, said he is working on removing features and the site said that it sounded like he has not progressed too far with the Pureness 2. But to get a grasp on what his intentions are, he even said, "You could remove the keys..." as his voice faded away. Mauritzson says that the focus on the second model will be on the software and that limiting the hardware to a monochrome screen with huge icons and minimalist keyboard forced Sony Ericsson to be creative in its thinking. The next version of the Pureness would simplify it more. It might take some time before the Pureness 2 hits the stores. The original took 2 years to go from a side project to a phone worthy enough of wearing the Xperia brand.
