Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness

The Xperia Pureness is like few other phones we've seen before. Above its standard flush keypad, the candy bar handset has a transparent display. Here you can see the classic Sony Ericsson menu interface with white text and icons. It's certainly eye-catching, though we wonder how the display would function in bright sunlight.

Text appears backwards when you view the Pureness's clear display from behind. Features includes a Web browser (that should be interesting), Bluetooth, messaging and e-mail, USB mass storage, a personal organizer, and a speakerphone.

Sony Ericsson Elm

Also a GreenHeart handset, the Elm is made from recycled plastics; it's free of hazardous materials; its box has minimal packaging; and it includes eco-friendly apps, like a pedometer. Other features include a 5-megapixel camera, an FM radio, a personal organizer, messaging and e-mail, a music player, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a speakerphone. It comes in two colors: metal black and pearly rose.

The rear side of the Elm is curved. Sony Ericsson said it designed the handset that way for a more comfortable and ergonomic fit in your hand. We didn't notice much of a difference, but we were pleased to see that the Elm doesn't wobble excessively when you rest it on a surface.
