3 signs up Sony Ericsson

Three becomes four

Sony Ericsson K608 3, the 3G mobile operator, is adding Sony Ericsson handsets to its stable. S-E joins NEC, Motorola and LG as a preferred supplier of 3G video mobiles to the 3 group of companies.

The K608i (pictured left) is the first handset to go on sale - it debuts in the UK at start of August. The handset features a 1.3 mega pixel camera, capable of digital still and video capture, as well as support for various smart phone functions such as picture messaging and Bluetooth.

3 chief exec Bob Fuller said Sony Ericsson will ensure 3 "continues to offer the widest choice of 3G video mobiles in the UK. The video mobiles available in the market in the second half of this year are comparable in size and weight to GSM phones, but come with the full range of exciting video mobile features, full-length music videos, video calling, live over-the-air interactive gaming and video messaging."

Which is nice. ®
