Sony Ericsson phones cover all the bases

At CES, Sony Ericsson shows green phones, a handset with a transparent display, and a designer model with gold plating. Check them out in CNET's slideshow.

The spiffy Xperia X10 wasn't the only notable phone sitting pretty in the Sony Ericsson booth. We also checked out a few new models that range from eco-friendly to runway-worthy to just plain odd. Catch them in our Sony Ericsson CES slideshow , but read the highlights here.

Xperia Pureness Weighing in with more than a little wow factor, the Xperia Pureness has a transparent display on top of its otherwise ordinary candy bar design. It's certainly a conversation piece, but we're wondering just how it will perform in the real world.

Jalou If you're a slave to fashion, then you might consider the Jalou. Designed in partnership with Dolce & Gabana, the sparkling pink Jalou has a jewel-like design with a mirrored finish and diamond-shaped keypad buttons. And what would a designer outfit be without designer accessories?

Naite, Elm, and Hazel Part of Sony Ericsson's GreenHeart series, these handsets feature parts from recycled plastic; they're free of harmful materials; they use less packaging; and they have energy-efficient chargers. Plus, they're not lacking in features, either.
