I wish Sony would bring back the Walkman & Cybershot range,
Really think they are missing a trick here.
I wonder, why phones like those hard to find this days..
It's a shame..feature phones are still very valuable..
I would buy one definitely..
This was the article from 2008. The phone featured in Quantum of Solace!
would love to see the rise of the likes of this phone again. So much nostalgia and design creativity
Looks amazing. I miss the era of featurephones.
We do have some reasonable featurephones now, but nothing like they used to be.
i bet the screen is not really responsive ... that why SE never released this ...
the screen might be a resistive type rather than modern capacitive type... but it still a cool concept back in the days... even nokia 5800xpressmusic use resistive touch screen and people buy it back then.
Isn't this prototype been around for a while? I remember reading an article about this prototype long time ago
Me likey! Looks really well. I use to have a walkman phone and I loved it!
Well, I hope Sony or Samsung take notes about this flip phone, and get some ideas of how they could apply something useful to the outer screen of those flexible phones
Wow! Now, this is a real scary movie from the past!
Too horrible to continue to watch.

Spanky, 21 May 2020Ah, Sony Ericsson. I feel like I'm in the 2000s again… I wonder how the seller got his hand... moreIt's fairly common for such prototypes to emerge only much much later after development was ended/cancelled. Sometimes, it's from a contractor who kept one and sold it in a garage sale or whatnot. Or a company branch/third-party partner who went bankrupt and sold everything they had in the building.
Ah, Sony Ericsson. I feel like I'm in the 2000s again…
I wonder how the seller got his hands on this model? An ex employee who nicked the prototype? An elaborate fake? And why wait for so long to „release“ it? It's like new 2PAC songs mysteriously getting released every now and then.
So many questions, so much nostalgia.
