However, if you're addicted to your social networks like Twitter and Facebook, have a boatload of pics on Picasa, and consider music and videos a necessary evil in life, this could be the phone for you. Find out why (and see more images) after the jump.

Twenty-one year old tennis star Maria Sharapova not only endorses Canon PowerShot cameras, but she's recently signed on with Sony Ericsson as its "first global brand ambassador." According to Crave, Sharapova will be working with the Japanese-Swedish company's designers on a range of products and accessories. Right now, Sharapova is promoting the Sony Ericsson W350i, which she is posing with here. The W350i is a sleek slide phone that comes with a walkman player, a 1.3-megapixel camera and internet/email functionality. Stay tuned for purchasing info.
I can't decide whether I'm digging this phone because of my early obsession with Rainbow Brite or Jem and the Holograms, but the giant star and colorful stripes make this gadget absolutely adorable! Designed by fashion designer Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada, the Z310 special edition Sony Ericsson phone was recently launched in Europe by Vodafone. Gizmodiva also reveals that the phone comes with interchangeable face plates and wallpapers designed by "la Prada." Priced around $132. What do you think?
The new Sony Ericsson K770i Cyber-shot cell phone has just been announced and it's sleek as ever. This skinny 14.5mm thick phone comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera, a media player, FM radio and includes 256MB memory. Displayed on Gizmodo the K770i will easily connect to your PC or laptop for the quick-sharing of images. Set to be launched in Europe later this year, the camera should be making its way to the US not long after. After seeing this digital cam, I swear brown must be the new pink — it's so sexy!
Sony Ericsson has announced a new phone born out of its design teams' "love for the materials and colors found in the natural world." You would expect that means a phone made of hemp, patchwork and blue sky, but it actually came out more like a mood ring.
The Sony Ericsson S500 is a 14mm slim slider with color accents and changing desktop themes. You set the in-phone themes and external light effects to change when you want - with the seasons, as day turns to night or when the weekend begins.
The phone also includes regular phone functions such as a 2.0 megapixel camera, a media player and expandable Memory Stick slot.
Sony Ericsson's special silver and black versions of the K800 and K790 Cyber-shot camera phone took center screen in Casino Royale and if it means being one step closer to Bond man Daniel Craig I don't know how anyone could resist them.
The exclusive camera phones, which were available for a limited period of three months, are highly capable mobile phones that also provide a 3.2 Megapixel camera with Autofocus, Xenon Flash for lowlight conditions and BestPic, which allows the user to take nine pictures of a moving object simultaneously and choose to keep the best shot. It also allows high speed 3G data transfer then allows the user to share images easily and instantly so you can share them with friends, colleagues - or even MI6 – as you take their picture.
Sony Ericsson has finally released photographs of the rumored new model of the Walkman(R) phone and I must admit, I'm very impressed. The W880 Walkman(R) phone combines the good looks of the hottest thin phones of the day (think Blackberry Pearl and RAZOR) with updated music-centered features of the old-school Walkman.
The W880 will launch within the first half of 2007 when more details will be provided. Overall, it looks like 2007 will be the year of the music phone. Every manufacturer is scramming to make the ultimate MP3 player/phone combo before the competition. I suspect the best of the best will come from a company like Sony, which already has experience with music players.
