Announced – Sony Ericsson txt

Earlier we told you of the new handsets from Sony Ericsson. The Sony Ericsson Ray and Active are now here, but so too is the Sony Ericsson txt – a device with a 2.6″ 240×320 screen screen and a 3.2 megapixel camera. It’s pretty squarely aimed at the young texters, emailers and “Facebookers”. It’ll be available in white, black, pink and blue and comes with a “Friends” app for checking your Twitter and Facebook mates easily.

Other specs include WiFi, stereo Bluetooth, FM radio, 3.5mm audio and a 1000mAh battery.

We’re currently trying to see what OS this is running as it may not be Android..
