Sony Ericsson illuminates web with K660

Light-up keys...

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sony Ericsson’s latest is aimed squarely at youngsters, to provide “web for youth”, as the company puts it. The K660 packs HSDPA connectivity and a host of web-friendly features.

The quad-band handset can link to RSS news feeds, helping give it a wider appeal than just a portable email checker. Web pages are displayed in landscape mode on its 2in, 240 x 320 display, while its keys light up when users surf the web - maybe so you can use it to surf in the dark.

Alternatively, its display also allows for browsing through your collection of pictures snapped on the handset’s two-megapixel camera, and stored on the bundled 256MB Memory Stick Micro card.

But since this capacity’s a little limited, the built-in Bluetooth and USB will help you save some storage capacity by giving you a way to transfer content off the phone and onto a PC.

Its Bluetooth connectivity also extends to A2DP, for wireless music streaming to, say, a pair of wireless headphones or compatible stereo.

The K660 is available from Q1 2008, but a price hasn't been highlighted yet.
