Sony Ericsson unveiled four new mobile phones Monday, from a basic handset with text and calling options to a more advanced phone with third-generation technology allowing downloading of music and games and videoconferencing.

The K608 is a lightweight 3G handset with a camera, FM radio and digital music player. The other phones, using the GSM standard, were geared toward younger, fashion-conscious users, including the J210 with basic voice and messaging features. GSM phones, or global system for mobile communications, account for a majority of the world's wireless users.

The S600 includes a camera and advanced gaming features, while the clamshell Z520 was geared toward young women "who want to carry an attractive accessory just as much as a mobile communications device," Sony Ericsson spokesman Jan Wareby said.

The new phones, launched at a telecommunications show in Singapore and at a news conference in Stockholm, will be available in the second half of the year. Prices were not announced.

Sony Ericsson is a joint venture between Japan's Sony Corp. and LM Ericsson of Sweden.
