se4.jpgSony Ericsson is launching Z750, a HSDPA handset in US. The high-gloss texture gives the cell a touché of glamour too. This clamshell Z750 is presented in Phantom Grey or Rose Pink and has mirror-like qualities that hide an external display that lights up to show an incoming call or text message. And a 2-megapixel cam, VGA video camera, Bluetooth, and a Memory Stick slot.

sanyo-scp-7050.jpgThe Sanyo SCP-7050 is said to be one of the toughest guys around. Talking of a flipper, one would mostly associate it with a breed of slim weaklings, but here’s an exception. It enters the ring at 4.1 ounces, an extendable antenna and a speaker grille on its front face. The 1.0-inch diagonal monochrome external display is pretty useful. The internal display supports 265,000 colors and measures 2.0 inches (diagonally) and offers 240×320 pixel resolutions. Sanyo. And finally, with 4.4 hours of talk this phone is quite a thing.

For real men, yeah, right.

nokia_3310.jpgNokia re-did the legendary phone. Remember space invaders? The new rendition is not at all like the classic, it comes refurbished with support for GSM networks, a 1.3-megapixel camera and microSD slot.

We do not know, how much will it cost. Still, there will be no other Nokia 3310.

helio-ocean.jpgThe Helio Ocean is a dual slider phone with a really nice design. The QWERTY keyboard that slides out of its side is great to use because of nice key ergonomy. The numeric keypad slides in the opposite direction. It comes with EV-DO radio and an inbuilt GPS system. Internet support for services like Yahoo!, AOL, MSN, Gmail, and email are available in the Ocean as also are messaging services, Exchange Server and ActiveSync integration. You can upload your photos with Helio UP and can also exploit the built-in Google Maps available in this one. And for gamers the PlaysForSure tunes will take you out od this Universe for 15 hours, with 200MB of internal storage and a microSD slot. Features like a 2 megapixel cam, Bluetooth and USB connectivity will surely be onboard.
The Helio Ocean will be available this summer for a mere $295.

lg2.jpgLG showed two clamshells, who operate over CDMA. The LG VX-8700 is with a 2 megapixel shooter and EV-DO radio connectivity. Also, there is Bluetooth and microSD. The external display blends into something called a ‘brushed aluminum façade’. Next on is the LG LX-570. Glossy black music phone. Yeah. It comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, FM tuner, EV-DO and Bluetooth and a tune-controlling D-pad. To make music toggling easy, this one is touch-sensitive. There’s also a micro-SD slot for extra storage.

There is no news on the release date of price of the LG VX-8700 and the LG LX-570 for now.

– Didn’t want to switch carriers/get out of contract (~23%)

They didn’t count mine ‘omgno can’t wait want this one’

motorola_lazr.jpgAfter the RAZR, KRZR and the RIZR it seems is Motorola working on another phone, the LAZR. Familiar shiny and reflective looks from the KRZR, the lamshell has 512 MB of memory and a cool 2 inch internal display. The LAZR runs on Linux with a nifty text to speech feature for writing SMS’s and E-mails. Unfortunately the phone lacks the much needed memory expansion slot.

No more information is available for now but the trend of motorola’s naming looks scary. When we’ll have ’shizzl ma nizzl’ phone?
