Sony Ericsson Aino review
Sony Ericsson the leading handset manufacturer has released pocketable Sony Ericsson Aino that is the flagship product of Touch screen domain. Being the leading innovator in technological realm Sony Ericsson blends the phone with Remote Play feature that enables controlling the PlayStation3 and viewing online video streaming either through Wi-fi or net. Realistically hopes are sky high for this exceptional device in terms of pricing, compatibility and functionality.
Embedded with a bonus feature identified as Media Go that enables browsing of media through Wi-fi (enhanced by third generation GSM) with the handset positioned in the charging base.
Well the chunky feel of the Touch screen phone deters the palm friendly factor featuring the clichéd design of buttons that need no applause. Though Sony Ericsson has carved a niche among its consumers through its appearance and functionality, it has never experimented or reinvented itself with regard to weighty issues. This particular Sony Ericsson smart is available in Luminous white and Obsidian Black colors
