The latest phone from Sony Ericsson may not be gold, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. (In fact, it's a good thing, in our opinion.)
The "Z310" clamshell does have a "mirror finish," but it's still more tastefully designed than so-called luxury phones we've seen recently--and even though pricing isn't yet known, we'll go out on a limb and guess that it'll cost considerably less. Its asthetic sensibilities continue inside, according to I4U News, as the phone includes "lighting effects" that allow you to color-code and personalize contacts.
Other features include a VGA camera, speakerphone and MP3 ringtones. It also has a small screen on the outer shell that can display the time, which we appreciate for those many occasions when we lose our watches, among other things.
