When compared with its presence last year at the GSMA World Congress, Sony Ericsson is taking a quieter turn this time in Barcelona. Instead of unveiling a handset like the Xperia X1, the company is focusing more on strategy with an intense focus on entertainment.

As part of this move, the company unveiled just one new phone, the W995, but it also gave an advance peek at a new high-end, touch-screen handset.

Tentatively named the Idou, it will pack multimedia in a thin candy bar design. Features will include a 12.1-megapixel camera, a Xenon flash, a 3.5-inch display, a Symbian OS and "full music and video capabilities." We're not exactly sure what that means, but we'll make an attempt to find out.

The Idou won't officially be announced until the second half of the year. As such, we don't have a release date or availability information.
