In my mad dash to get to Spain (I had a little over 24 hours to pack, find a hotel, etc), I forgot to charge my iPod. Now if I woulda had one of these mobiles by my side, everything would've been alright. Granted, none of these phones would have lasted me the full 6+ hour flight from NY to Barcelona, but they would've put a temporary end to the crying moppet behind my seat on the airplane. Here are some of my personal favorite Sony Ericsson phones that were revealed at the show. Until I see the iPhone, I think these are the best music phones out there period.

This top picture is a W850, which has indeed been on the market for ages in both black and white, along with the speaker dock that it is sitting on. Same with the first picture on the left which is a M600 (released even before the W850).

The W880 & W610 on the other hand are brand new. You should also note that Sony claims insane battery life in 'airplane mode'— up to 30 hours continuous playback. In my experience, this is closer to 18 hours, but that is certainly long enough for any flight.
