Sounds like every other cell phone on the block right now, no? So I guess we'll see if Sony Ericsson has something up their sleeve this week at MWC, aside from big bulky QWERTYs on their smartphones.

My first thought is fugly. a word I haven't used since Zune 1.0.

My second thought is this thing was designed by a committee of people who don't message themselves but think they know what messaging is.

I do think the form factor, if done right, could be useful for some situations. It's a solution looking for a problem.
