Sony Ericsson Plays Nice With Thumb Drives

You know, industrial designers seem to love conceptualizing what future Sony Ericsson mobiles will look like. Designer Vincent Palicki is just one of many but his design actually looks like it could be made today and fit right in with the SE family.

It’s a slim candy bar style phone complete with a big screen, standard SE key layout but touched up with stainless steel buttons. Yes it’ll do music, movies, text, email, blah blah and blah so where’s the innovation here? It would be the full size USB port, perfect for any thumb drive. Of course it’s not meant to have a “sore thumb” sticking out at all times, but it’s a way to transfer files like music, videos, and pictures to and from without the need of a computer.

    The phone doesn't look bad. I'm not a fan of the tiny round buttons, that could be improved and the for a phone to have a USB port is a fantastic idea.

    Isn’t that one of the half usb ports?… the buttons on the phone certainly have to be re-thought. But very nice concept!

  • Rainydayinterns says:

    Nice! …and it’s about time Sony stopped putting that stupid MemoryStick port in their devices.

  • Nikeplr says:

    I like the idea of a USB port….but seriously something is really wrong with the kinda keypads SE is making….

  • Taime says:

    Sure a USB port might be easier for some people, but I don’t have a problem with hooking my phone up to a computer with a wire and transfering files that way.

    Sony Ericsson Always one step head with other mobile makers as they introduce a usb port with mobile phone.

    instead of making the phone’s UI more user friendly and more easier to us, you go and add one gaping hole to an other wise beautiful phone…. why would i want to plug this thing into my phone, plug it out and plug it into my comp again.. isnt that making it redundant and pointless… instead of minimalising steps… you add more to it… it should be just connect phone to computer.. computer does the rest.

    If your computer isnt smart enough to detect your phone… than .. change a computer…

    I had a teacher who would always say “Before you do something, ask yourself if there is a good reason why it hasn’t already been done”. My wife’s samsung takes micro SD. With an SD adapter already in a card reader, and even when it’s not, going from the phone to the desktop is not that big of a hassle. And the reason nobody has already done it.

      Read the text – it is not a real phone it is just a concept – it is not even a Sony concept. USB would need 5v and a bus controller. MicroSD or memory stick are much easier to implement for same outcome.

      it was very useful to handling.it was very faster than other mobiles.price is also equal to the quatity

  • Lucian says:

    The Neo Freerunner (openmoko.com) can act as a USB host and thus use thumb drives. Small adapter from female usb to female mini-usb is needed.

  • Hello says:

    Is it gonna come out?
    i hope so…
    looks really cool and the usb port could be so usefull !!!!

  • dinesh reddy says:

    I want to buy this moblie can u tell me the model number

  • bizzybody says:

    It has Palm’s “Athena” connector on the bottom, minus the power connector. That’ll never be on a Sony product.

    BTW, that connector is one of the most pointless things ever to come from Palm. It tends to get a thin layer of transparent corrosion on it and you have to press hard on the synch connector and wiggle it to restore contact. Palm PDAs with this connector can also charge via the synch cable. The power connector design is equally silly, proprietary simply for the sake of being proprietary and more expensive when a standard USB mini B (like on the Tungsten E) would’ve been far sturdier and more reliable.

    In the image displayed above the usb port is @ the bottom side of the mobile.

    But It could be better if the position of the usb port on the the Top Left of mobile

    When will we can expect for that?Is that available now in this 2011?
