Sony Ericsson Aspen early review: Call, text and tree-mail
Sony Ericsson says all its phones will meet the enviro-friendly GreenHeart standard in 2011, so you may want to hold off buying a Sony Ericsson Aspen for purely green reasons, unless the idea of a touchscreen Qwerty phone running Windows Mobile 6.5 really floats your boat. And if it does, that's one odd boat you're sailing, buddy.
The Aspen looks handsome, in a business-like way, but WinMo 6.5 isn't very touchscreen-friendly, and the small 61mm (2.4-inch) screen doesn't make it any easier on your fingers. There's a full Qwerty keyboard, however, and a traditional five-way function button that makes navigation possible, if not pleasurable.
We got our hands on the Aspen at last week's Mobile World Congress, so click 'Continue' to see more tree.
The Aspen wants to make your life more organised with panels you can customise with your favourite functions and widgets. We find them confusing.
You can set up a timeline so different panels are active during the day, so your phone's home screen morphs from work mode to weekend fun times.
The Aspen makes room for a 3.2-megapixel camera on the back, but at 117 by 60mm, this phone isn't small.
The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue
he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
