Swedish-Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson unveiled two new color-screen camera-phones to boost its offering of imaging phones in a fast growing market.

The world's fifth largest mobile phone maker launched the P900 camera-Personal Digital Assistant-phone, which is an improved version of its successful P800 predecessor.

"It is smaller, faster, simpler, and more flexible," Sony Ericsson said in a statement. One of the phone's new features is the ability to record and send short video clips.

The P900, at the top of the price range, will be sold in Europe and the Asia Pacific region in the fourth quarter, when consumers traditionally spend the most. It will come to China and the U.S. in the first quarter of 2004, the company said.

The second new handset is the T630. It resembles Sony Ericsson's T610 model, the sales of which helped the company make a profit in the third quarter after a long string of losses.

The T630, which Sony Ericsson said will be priced similarly to the mid-range T610, will be sold in China in the fourth quarter and will be available in Europe and the Americas in the first quarter of 2004.

The two new models follow three color screen phones launched in September, which were to broaden the less expensive range of Son Ericsson's handsets. (AP)
