Sony Ericsson's Naite may classify as an eco-phone, but its packed feature set makes it a good pick for socialites shopping in the midlevel range--daintier carbon footprints notwithstanding.
Get to know Naite
Sony Ericsson is positioning the Naite as a green machine, but though it is indeed made from recycled materials, we're guessing that "Earth-friendly" is the last thing you'll notice. You'll instead be drawn to the sharp and bright display typical of Sony Ericsson phones, and to the pack of features inside. These include an FM radio, video camera, and video and photo editors in addition to MMS, e-mail, and Google Maps.
The Naite's 2-megapixel camera is decent enough for a midrange phone, and has multiple shooting modes that include black and white images and burst photography. Switch the software to video mode for recording long or short clips.
Sony Ericsson has elected to keep the Naite's spine relatively clear of buttons, with the expected exception of a volume rocker on the right spine, and the strange decision to put a charger port on the left spine instead of at the base.
