MTV does another phone for Europe

Latest special edition is a Sony Ericsson W760i Walkman handset.


MTV is continuing its march across Europe to get its logo on various continental-based gadgets. Its latest effort is a co-branded "MTV Edition" of Sony Ericsson's W760i Walkman phone.

It's the second MTV handset released on the European market, following one designed by Paris-based ModeLabs for France. Both are sliders, though the newest version at least tries a different design, as opposed to the rather lame logo on ModeLab's red 3G phone.

The Sony Ericsson version also features a GPS receiver, games, and an "enhanced music experience," according to MobileWhack, as well as a speaker that doubles as a protective case. That could come in handy if you run into some soccer hooligans on the Tube.
