Sony Ericsson Touchscreen Smartphone coming in H2

Now that the euphoria about the 'Fab 5' ie..the X10, Vivaz, Vivaz Pro, X10 mini, X10 mini Pro, is over, it was about time we got some info about the next batch of handsets right? ;)

Well, in a news article regarding Sony Ericsson's Taiwan partners, it's been revealed that Sony Ericsson is expected to release orders for two ODM handsets to Arima Communications in 2010, with shipments of one Walkman handset to begin at the end of the second quarter and the other, a touch-enabled model, in the second half of the year.

The article further goes on to say that orders for feature phones released by Sony Ericsson to Taiwan production partners will be reduced significantly in 2010 as the handset vendor is switching its focus on smartphones.

While the news that Walkman is back in the picture isn't new, most of us will be hoping that the touch enabled device is the rumored Playstation Phone.

I'll keep you posted as and when further details are out. For the time being, you can hit the link below to read the entire article.
