We love classic handsets as much as anyone else, but it seems that Sony Ericsson is going the nostalgic route with their unannounced Sony Ericsson Remi. It’s still a rumor at this point, but the handset bearing the codename “Remi” is apparently Sony Ericsson’s remake on the tried-and true favorite, the Sony Ericsson T610.
The Sony Ericsson T610 was a huge hit for the handset manufacturer back in 2003, so we can’t blame the Japanese-Swedish for yearning for the good old days. From the looks of the Remi, Sony Ericsson has taken a page out of the T610’s design playbook with a two-tone exterior and non-Walkman branding.
The Sony Ericsson Remi is apparently based on the Sony Ericsson W890 platform, and so will feature a 3.2 megapixel camera and HSDPA. But, the company has seemingly dropped the “W” (Walkman) branding for this nostalgic handset. And, in keeping with the slim monoblock profile that we love seeing on the Sony Ericsson W890, the Sony Ericsson Remi will be about 10mm thick!
More on the Remi as we hear it…
