The Jalou was unveiled in August

A new handset from Sony Ericsson may interest those mobile recycling for a compact, practical model, if one expert is to be believed.

Taking a look at the manufacturer's new Jalou, Jonathon Parkyn explained the unusual design of the device may only appeal to "roughly 50 per cent of the population".

However, he added although style is one of the key points Sony Ericsson have decided to focus on with the unit, it is some of the handy features that are likely to impress many.

"From a purely practical point of view, the Jalou is an extremely convenient way of combining your phone, camera, music player and of course, your compact mirror in a single, tiny device," he said.

The model is available in three colours - purple, black and blue - and a Dolce & Gabbana special edition has been launched that comes in rose and gold.

Originally unveiled by Sony Ericsson in August, the Jalou offers a 3.2-megapixel camera, integrated media player, FM radio, 3G and HSDPA connectivity and up to 4 GB of storage with microSD card support.
