The golden age of the flip phone may be behind us (at least in the USA), but that doesn't mean there's no demand at all. In order to meet whatever demand remains, Sony Ericsson
has today pushed out a new flip phone destined for the airwaves of T-Mobile USA, and apparently it's destined for the purses and pockets of those who appreciate fashion.
Aside from providing users with a unique pulsating night effects that enable users to never miss a call or text message, the 3G-equipped phone touts built-in GPS, various color LEDs and a 3.2MP camera. There's also a direct-to-YouTube upload feature, integrated FM radio, Stereo Bluetooth and a gesture control system that lets users reject incoming calls or silence an alarm with the wave of a hand.
There's no mention of a price, but you should be able to sneak into your local T-Mobile story and find out starting today. Oh, and did we mention that this thing is Maria Sharapova-approved? Hooray!
