Sony Ericsson unveils the W890i, K660i and W380i

Perhaps in response to the imminent arrival of the iPhone, Sony Ericsson unveiled three phones last night -- the W890i, K660i and W380i

Last night Sony Ericsson commandeered the Scala club in London's seedy King's Cross to show off three new handsets, including two new Walkman phones.

First up, we had a look at the W890i Walkman phone -- the W880i's successor. If you like your phones thin, the W890 will definitely float your boat -- it measures only 10mm thick.

Impressively, Sony Ericsson has managed to squash in HSPDA (3.5G), a 3.2-megapixel camera, FM radio and a 2GB Memory Stick Micro (M2) card bundled with it, which will store up to 1,800 songs.

After playing around with it for a few minutes we noticed one overwhelming factor that makes it better than the W880i -- it has a usable keypad, not rice-grain sized keys.
