A spring of Sony Ericsson phones

In the last day of May, Sony Ericsson made its Idou concept phone official. The handset, now called the Saito, offers all the features we saw at GSMA 2009. Sony also announced two brand-new handsets. Both the Yari and Aino focus on gaming. Check them out in our photo gallery.
