Insider: SonyEricsson going kinky with hinges

We’ve seen straight phones and bi (dual hinge) phones, we’ve seen slider phones and swivel phones. Having informally stating that they’re giving up on swivel phones (not forever, hopefully), SonyEricsson is said to be working on yet another form factor. Supposedly the newly designed hinge will do what the W44S can do, i.e. landscape and portrait viewing, but shredding off some bulk. No, the 3″ screen will be retained (phew), the new hinge should first appear on the upcoming W5 series (W51S) for AU KDDI. According to our sources, who managed to predict the Toshiba TX80 announcement correctly, Most of the functions on W44S will be retained, the speed will be upped to EVDO Rev.A, DMB recording can now be done in VGA resolution. They got the fruits, we want the juice. Not far from announcement. Stay tuned.
