Sony Ericsson has announced the launch of the S312 with the claim that it will let you capture video, or snap a pic, in two "quick and easy steps".

Although it offers just a 2-megapixel camera, there are illuminated imaging shortcuts on the keypad (including a video camera key) and an integrated "photo fix" function.

In addition, Sony Ericsson says the camera can be used horizontally and users can upload the shots to the web with "just a few clicks" using picture blogging.

Sony Ericsson is angling the new clip-on Bluetooth handsfree VH300, an easy to use headset due out Q3, as a perfect partner to the GSM/GPRS/EDGE handset.

The S312 will be available in selected markets from Q2 in "dawn blue" and "honey silver". - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
