Rumour: Sony Ericsson Aino does not have an onscreen keypad

31 May

After oohing-and-aahing over the magnificent Sony Ericsson Aino, yup the one that can get content from your PS3, it is now time to hear the bitter truth. We have learnt that the Aino will have limited capabilities when its alphanumeric keypad is hidden beneath the lovely touchscreen.

Apparently, in its closed position, a user will only be able to access limited functions via the touchscreen. These functions have been limited to multimedia – games, music, videos and camera to be precise.

If true, it is most likely that the developers have not toiled hard enough to give an onscreen keypad to type text messages or e-mails or even make a call! One would have to inevitably slide open the keypad for everything.

Why Sony Ericsson, why? Why did you have to break our hearts?
