Sony Ericsson M600iSony Ericsson introduced the M600i today at an event in London. The phone shares design similarities with both Sony Ericsson's consumer and professional product lines--it features an integrated keyboard, though one with each key serving two letters. The handset will come in both black and white, ushering up thoughts of Apple's latest iPod.

Spec wise the M600i is loaded:

  • Just 15mm thick
  • Symbian 9.1 and UIQ 3.0
  • GSM 900/1800/1900 plus UMTS 2100 MHz
  • QVGA touch screen with 262K colors
  • 80 MB internal user memory, plus Memory Stick Micro slot (a new format aimed to compete with microSD)
  • USB 2.0 for syncing and charge
  • Media player with support for MP3, AAC, ACC+, E-AAC+ and m4a
  • Bluetooth with support for stereo headsets

The Sony Ericsson M600i is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2006. Because of its radio it's doubtful a US carrier will pick it up, but like other models (such as the P910i) it will be available for import and possible purchase direct from Sony Ericsson USA.
