Photos of new Sony Ericsson phones

CNET captures the new Sony Ericsson Saito, Aino and Yari phones in a photo gallery.

Last week we got the good news that Sony Ericsson officially brought its Idou concept phone out into the open. Though the company made the Idou the centerpiece of its booth at GSMA 2009 , it left us hanging by holding back an official announcement of features and availability. Also, a Sony Ericsson rep wouldn't let the prototype model out of his sight.

But all that changed Thursday when the company took the last wrapping off the package. Now called the Saito, the handset offers the same eye-catching design with a brilliant display and a loaded multimedia feature set. The Satio should be out by the fourth quarter of this year. Joining the Satio in London were the new Sony Ericsson Aino and Yari. Both offer sliding designs with unique gaming features. To see the new phones in all their glory, check out our spring Sony Ericsson sideshow .
