A month after Sony Ericsson introduced three high-end media phones , the company scaled things down just a bit by unveiling the midrange Sony Ericsson T715. Also released in London, the T715 sports a very Sony Ericsson slider design in galaxy silver or rogue pink. It's relatively compact (3.6 inches by 1.9 inches by 0.6 inch) and it offers a 2.2-inch display that supports 262,144 colors.

Features include a 3.2-megapixel camera with video recording, stereo Bluetooth, a personal organizer, a speakerphone, messaging, USB transfer and mass storage, PC syncing, and a music player. And in a new (and welcome) move, Sony Ericsson ditches its proprietary Memory Stick format and opts instead for a microSD card slot.

The handset comes in two versions: the T715 and the T715a. While both are quad-band GSM world phones, the former is formatted for European 3G bands and the latter will support North America 3G. We don't have pricing yet, but the phone should be available in the third quarter of this year.
