Posted by on in iNews | 0 comments

Sony-Ericsson, the mobile maker, has launched 4 new mobile phone models, two of which introduce auto-focus cameras & one that’s got Walkman branded music player, reports Reuters. WOW!! 😀

Mobile handset market is seeing some of the toughest competition that I’ve seen in any market with all makers trying hard to woo customers. They are packing a tiny device like a phone with so many features that its no longer meant for only sending & receiving calls and messages. It can snap photographs, play recorded songs, play radio, send MMS/Picture Messages, record audios-videos, let you play games, checks your email, browse internet, keep your schedule diary/to-do list/appointments, and just every other damn thing. What the heck!! 😀

Every company wants to increase their business, that’s why they are into business. And everyone cashes in on their major selling point.

Now that I’ve sorted out most of the things(changed jobs, I’ll talk about it later in another post), I’ll have some free time each day & over the weekends too. So I’ll be able to devote my some time to my little projects.
