Sunday 10th February is the start of the Mobile World Congress telecoms event, and some manufacturers are expected to reveal their hand for the week on the opening day.

We know that Sony Ericsson are preparing a big announcement for the 10th but it now seems we can perhaps speculate about exactly what it be revealed.

Sony Ericsson fan sites and forums are reporting that the company will launch an entirely new range of phones - the "G" series also being dubbed the "Compact Touch Series".

Two models are predicted for the official unveiling on the Sunday, the G900i and G700i, which may feature touchscreens as well as ordinary keypads.

The G900i (codenamed Tyra) will supposedly have a 2.6-inch screen, WLAN, and a 5-megapixel camera. The G700i (codenamed Josephine) will also feature the 2.6-inch screen, but with a smaller 3.2-megapixel camera and no Wi-Fi.

Pocket-lint will be attending the MWC event so will bring you all the news from Sunday's Sony Ericsson announcement, as well as much, much more...
