Believe it or not, this garish green gadget, the Sony Ericsson Kiki, is actually a mobile. Yes, it has a transparent screen, and no it doesn’t have any buttons, but why would Sony Ericsson let little things like that get in the way of launching a phone even fitter than the LG Crystal?
We were big fans of the latter’s smart, see through keypad when it launched in May, but the Sony Ericsson Kiki, dug up by Mobil, goes one further by stuffing in a glass screen with no back, and a UI projected onto it from, well, somewhere.
As for the keys on the Sony Ericsson Kiki? That screen is far too small to be a touchy feely job. It’s possible that the lid on the Sony Ericsson Kiki slides down to reveal a T9 keypad, but given the menu layout, don’t expect to be using it for more than the occasional text message.
Interestingly, the scan of the green Sony Ericsson Kiki has Vodafone visibly written on it, as well as a date from October last year. Has Voda been in cahoots with Sony Ericsson about this handsome handset? You’d have hoped they’d have had something to show for it by now if they were so don’t put money on it.
