If you've been wondering what's next on Sony Ericsson's agenda for release from their "communication entertainment" portfolio, wonder no more, for the first quarter of 2010 will bring their new Vivaz handset to the market. 

The Vivaz promises HD video capture and direct upload via pre-loaded applications for the shoot-and-share generation, coupled with the 'human curvature' ergonomics introduced with the Xperia X10. Operating on the Symbian S60 5th edition system and featuring an 8.1-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, Media Player and 3.2-inch wide touchscreen, the Vivaz aims to offer an intuitive and spontaneous user experience. The handset will be coming to you in four out of this world colour options - Moon Silver, Cosmic Black, Galaxy Blue and Venus Ruby.

Gaia Phone Concept By Ahmad Bittar

Industrial designer Ahmad Bittar has come up with an interesting, if slightly worrying, handset concept that combines (or should that be exploits?) our increasingly emotional bond with our technology. Behold Gaia Phone, the emo phone of the (possibly not too distant) future that's like a party in your hand, if indeed you have enough friends for a party. The all-singing, all-dancing Gaia Phone comes alive with all the excitement of a well-adjusted puppy when in receipt of updates or contact from loved ones, friends or family. Of course, if you keep your friends close but your enemies closer, Gaia will keep you informed via the glow that keeps you in the know. Yes, the more contact you have with a person, the brighter the light, which will probably compound the misery of a break-up as that light will, quite literally, go out of your life. And so, sort of an ironic product for Generation Geek, as hermitic life sets in and the wide circle of friends slowly but surely dissipates. Nevermind, emo phone will feel your pain.
