Sony Ericsson presents the S312 and the W205
As it seems, the manufacturer promotes the S312 as a phone that would allow you to seize the spontaneous moments in life, thanks to the easy to press camera-dedicated key. Having that said, the camera is actually 2-megapixel with Photo Flash and video recording. It also features Photo fix, which should help make your images better, along with an option for photoblogging. A nice extra here are the illuminated icons next to the keys with camera functionality. Being a pretty standard phone targeted to the common consumer, the S312 would not surprise you with a large and fancy touch-sensitive screen. Just the opposite – it has a 2-inch display with a resolution of 176x220 pixels and 262k color support. Expect this one to show up anytime in the second quarter of the year on the European market only.

Sony Ericsson has also come up with a budget solution for the ones that would prefer listening to music to talking. If you are that kind of guy, well, the low-end W205 may just be what you need. Here we have all the basic Walkman stuff, including the renown Walkman player, TrackID, shuffle and loop modes. The phone is a stylish slider, coming with a color solution which is intriguingly named “Acoustic Black”. The W205 has a modest 1.3-megapixel camera (just in case!), and a 1.8-inch screen with a 128x160 pixels resolution. We hope that it will be able to deliver at least the promised 13 hours and a half of music playback, since this wouldn’t be such a great performance for a contemporary music phone. The W205 should hit the stores in Q3 2009 with two dual-band versions, one of which is designed for the American market.

The manufacturer has not informed us of the prices of both handsets, but they should definitely be on the affordable side.
