Sony Ericsson's W525: curvy

The W525 is a curvacious slider with 2GB of on-board memory, a two-megapixel camera and a Memory Stick Micro M2 card slot. The screen is a video-friendly widescreen 2.7in, 240 x 432 job with Sony's RealityMax image enhancement technology - a key component, the company claimed, of its Bravia LCD TV family.

The handset's dedicated music playback keys are on the side of the phone and illuminated for easy access. The W525's good for almost four hours' talk time, Sony Ericsson said.
