A sleepy CTIA for Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson makes few announcements at CTIA.

Shhh! It's Sony Ericsson Kent German/CNET Networks

Sony Ericsson may have a shiny booth at CTIA, but the company is hardly showing us anything. We saw the Sony Ericsson Z750a announcement yesterday, but so far the company hasn't unveiled any brand-new handsets. In fact, the best news concerns a smartphone we already know about. This time we actually got to touch the fancy Xperia X1, which the company announced at GSMA World Congress. At the previous show the Windows Mobile 6.1 handset either rested behind glass or in the firm grip of a Sony Ericsson employee. It's disappointing to see the company phone it in (sorry) like this, particularly after its very high-profile presence at both CES and GSMA. Yet, we hear that Sony Ericsson will surprise us with a few announcements this year that are outside of the normal trade show circuit. We'll be waiting.
