C'mon Sony, who is going to pay $600 for a feature phone?

I received a press release today from Sony Electronics regarding the new Sony Ericsson Aino unlocked mobile phone and have to really wonder if there are enough rich people who are willing to pay $600 for a feature phone. The Aino doesn't run any smartphone OS, but Ericsson's proprietary system. It does have an 8.1 megapixel camera and ability to work with a PlayStation3 for media sharing.

MobileTechRoundup show #177; Sorry T-Mobile I had to make some monthly savings

I never thought I would leave T-Mobile since we had the five phones on the family plan, but as I said in MobileTechRoundup show #177 we decided to switch everyone to AT&T and save ourselves about $85 a month by reducing my service to a single carrier. James, Kevin, and I discussed the Google Chrome OS announcement, myTouch 3G, iTunes App Store first birthday and tethering with the iPhone. We briefly talked about the Sony Vaio W too. Kevin shared a freeware of the show for the iPhone called RunKeeper that is perfect for those working out this Summer.
