We got a quick hands-on with Sony Ericsson's latest Cyber-shot camera phone, and it's a sweet 5-megapixel camera shoehorned inside a great-looking little cellphone. It's the K850 and it has a dual-front style, with a camera on one side and a cellphone on the other. We especially like the raised-button keypad with contextual icons, making it easier to handle the two sets of features within. When you're using the camera, a different set of icons are highlit, letting you make things happen without that cumbersome menu-dive that's usually necessary.

It's also bringing SE's Best Pic feature, a great way to take five photos in rapid succession, letting you pick the best of the five. It's also packing easily scrollable menus. Even though the screen is just 2.2 inches, it's still packed with nicely designed icons that are easy to decipher. It's a fine-looking phone, available in black with shiny green trim that we found striking, and there's a brushed metal model with blue trim, too.

Ericsson does have some pretty slim phones. I remember my mom had a tiny SE when she first got T-mobile.

I wish they made a sprint version of their smartphones, although they are extremely expensive. I remember the P900 being 700 bucks.
