Sony Ericsson to announce 8-megapixel "Hikaru" Walkman phone at MWC09?


Take the 8-megapixel shooter and slider form factor from the Sony Ericsson C905, up the screen from 2.4″ to 2.6″, throw in stereo speakers, dedicated music keys and an oh-so-necessary 3.5mm headphone jack, and stamp on the Walkman logo. What do you get? The Hikaru.

According to the SEMCBlog, we’ll see this high-end camera phone/music phone hybrid get announced at Sony Ericsson’s MWC press conference on February 15th, with a launch window sometime before the end of Q2. We can’t really say what we think about this one until we get a chance to touch it, but we can say that we really want to touch it.
