Sony showcases PS3 synching phone

Chicago (IL) – Sony Ericsson has unveiled the Aino – a mobile phone that allows users to remotely access media content on PS3 consoles. The Aino also features Media Home, an application that transfers media to the device over a standard Wi-Fi connection.

“Users just insert their Aino into its charging stand and it automatically synchronizes with all the latest media content on their PC,” the company explained in a statement.

Other notable items include:

  • 8.1 megapixel camera
  • 6x digital zoom
  • Image and video stabilizer
  • Bluetooth stereo (A2DP)
  • Phone memory – up to 55MB
  • Screen – 16,777,216 True Colour TFT
  • Resolution –  240 x 432 pixels

In addition to the Aino, Sony debuted two other phones: the Satio and Yari. The Satio, first introduced in Barcelona as the Idou, is designed to provides users with “access to all media in one place.”

“With Satio you can enjoy any form of entertainment anytime, anywhere. Whether its music or movies you will never be more than a tap away from your favourite tracks or shows,” explained Sony Ericsson spokesperson Fredrik Mansson. “Snapping perfect pictures also got so simple thanks to the 12.1 megapixel camera, intuitive touch focus and Xenon flash.”

The Yari is apparently the first mobile phone to support gesture game technology outside of the Japanese market. It offers:

  • Twist, tilt, turn and smash motion gaming
  • A/B buttons – gaming shortcut keys
  • Desktop gaming carousel
  • 5.0 mega pixel camera

All 3 new phones are expected to be available in early Q4.
