The new Sony Ericsson Aspen is a stylish cell phone optimized for mobile productivity, messaging and multimedia, being included in the company’s GreenHeart series of eco-focused handsets.
It is a Windows phone with support for multi-tasking, touch input and a QWERTY keyboard for composing emails and other types of messages, but one key feature is the Microsoft MyPhone service through which users can erase all the phone’s data remotely, in case the handset is stolen or lost.
