The Sony Ericcson Z555

Sony Ericsson has unveiled a mobile phone which you can silence with a wave of your hand.

The Z555 incorporates ‘Gesture Control’ technology which lets users mute a ring tone and ignore a call by moving a hand back and forth over the handset.

Similarly, anyone using the phone as an alarm clock can activate the snooze function by waving across the phone.

Walkman range

The handset was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas alongside two new handsets in the company's Walkman range of mobile phones.

The W760 is a slider phone with a 2.2 inch screen and a 3.2 inch megapixel camera.

It also comes with tri-band HSDPA technology to allow broadband speed downloads of the latest music and content wherever in the world it is used.

MP3 player

The handset also has GPS, which Sony says will let you search more than 20 million points of interest around the globe, and built-in stereo speakers.

The W350 is 10mm thick, can store up to 470 songs and has been designed with the music player’s controls on the outside of the phone so that it can be used like a standalone MP3 player.

It also has a 1.9 inch screen, and a 512 MB memory stick is included as part of the package.
