Sony Ericsson has just announced their latest addition, the K630i which is a mid-range 3G handset with a wide range of features. The handset measures 103 x 47 x 15.5 mm (HxWxD) and it weighs in at 97 grams, all of which makes it quite a nice and pocketable phone. It comes in either what Sony Ericsson calles Quick Black or Havana Gold.

The K630i has a 2-inch display which can display 262,144 colours at a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. Not that impressive considering that more and more phones today features higher resolutions than this. It supports GSM/GPRS and EDGE at 900/1800 and 1900MHz as well as 3G (UMTS) and HSDPA at 2100MHz. It also has support for Bluetooth 2.0 and there's also a built in FM radio.

The rear mounted camera features a 2 Megapixel sensor but there's no auto focus or flash. The front facing camera allows for video calls and manages VGA resolution. A Memory Stick M2 slots allows for memory expansion, as the built in memory is only 32MB. The handset ships with a 256MB M2 card, although up to 4GB is supported.

The supplied headset allows for any normal headphones with a 3.5mm jack to be used in place of the ones that ships with the handset and the K630i also comes with a USB cable for easy file transfer from your computer. Sony Ericsson claims a talk time of up to 9 hours in GSM mode and 5 hours in 3G mode with a standby time of up to 300 hours. You should also be able to use it as an audio player for over 21h.

In related news, Sony Ericsson also launched a new Bluetooth speaker the MBS-100 which looks rather interesting and offers 5 hours of music streaming and then takes less than 5 hours to charge back up again. It's compatible with any device that supports A2DP Bluetooth profiles and it proved a not so powerful 1.5W of music power, but at 225g it's quite portable.

The K630i should be available from some time this quarter and you can find the product page here. You can find the MBS-100 here.
