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..
