|Sony Ericsson is to take Motorola and Samsung head on next year by launching an super-slim Walkman-branded candybar handset of its own, it has been claimed. Codenamed 'Ai', the phone is said to be a mere 9.4mm thick.|
An industry source told Reuters that Sony Ericsson is working on a super slim high end Walkman model with camera , whose codename is taken from Japaneese tennis player Ai Sugiyama . Everybody seems to be calling it the Motorola RAZR-killer, but the more featured Sony Ericsson M600 already went that slim, at 15mm versus the RAZR’s 14, and the RAZR was a clamshell anyway. It is supposed to be unveiled in Q1 2007, and will be available in black and silver.
