Sony Ericsson offers Valentine’s Day special

Love is in the air, is it not? Just when Nokia has released its E63 messaging smartphone just in time for Valentine’s Day (or for lonely folks who want to text and email their single friends to do something come February 14th), Sony Ericsson gets into the groove with a trio of sleek, sexy red phones. The three handsets will be the Scarlet TM506, the C902 and the W760. We shall look at them in greater detail right after the jump, but this got me wondering – when did cell phones become Valentine’s Day gifts for people? Have you ever gotten a cell phone or given one out as a Valentine’s Day present? Do leave comment on your experience, and what do you think is the perfect geeky Valentine’s Day gift.

First of all we have the Scarlet TM506 that is a T-Mobile exclusive, and it comes complete with red accents and eye-catching design, making it a perfect choice for your sweetheart. It is equipped with all the relevant multimedia tools every couple needs for capturing those special lovey-dovey moments, including a 2 megapixel camera, slide show and video blogging capability. Not only that, you can be sure of where your other half is always thanks to the robust messaging options as well as GPS with location-based services from TeleNav.

Up next is the Luscious Red C902 Cyber-shot that denotes your passion in life, and this handset works with most GSM networks. It will allow you to capture key moments in your life with greater detail and clarity thanks to a 5 megapixel camera accentuated by illuminated camera touch keys for that added notch of elegance. In addition, the C902 also features Auto Focus, Face Detection, the ability to transfer photos anywhere you go and an integrated FM radio.

If you prefer to sing your heart out or let a song do the talking, why not consider the Red W760 Walkman phone? It lets your Valentine enjoy the latest tunes and game at the touch of a button. This is the first global Walkman phone that boasts broadband speed downloads of the latest music and content regardless of where you are. Other features include tilt gaming, the ability to play games in landscape mode with sound from stereo speakers, and the use of dedicated gaming buttons similar to a game console.

Pricing details have yet to be released as at press time.
