Sony Ericsson has unveiled a new mobile phone with a wholly transparent screen – the first handset ever to boast the eye-catching feature.
The mobile, dubbed the Xperia Pureness, was first sighted last year when it was codenamed the Kiki and was perceived to be a concept phone.
However, following the response the mobile received from phone fans and technology sites, Sony Ericsson has confirmed that the Pureness is going into production.
Specifications for the handset are as yet unconfirmed, but a press release from Sony Ericsson suggested that its principal selling point will be its looks rather than high-end features.
The release read: "[The] Xperia Pureness approaches the mobile phone as a work of art rather than technology. The company's designers aimed to sculpt an object of design that reflected the purity of water and a sense of calmness when not in use.”
Earlier this year LG released the LG Crystal GD900 which was the first-ever mobile phone to feature a fully transparent keypad.
