It's not exactly the mobile mecca the Mobile World Congress was, but CeBIT has kept its end up on the opening day...

First up is Sony Ericsson which has polished up its entry level offerings with the introduction of the 'T303' - a mid-size (83 x 47 x 15mm, 93g) slider with 1.3MP camera and decent 1.8in screen that acts as a mirror Shine-style when not in use.

Inside is a rather measly 8MB of memory, but this can be expanded by the usual Sony M2 slot and being quad-band it's travel friendly. An FM tuner is thrown in for good measure along with Bluetooth, USB mass storage support and a media player while its nine hour talk time and 400 hours of standby is nothing to be sniffed at. Expect it mid-2008 on both monthly and PAYG price plans.

Also keeping up its end today is Samsung which has further detailed the G400 - which we caught a brief glimpse of at the MWC. The G400 is a Soul influenced 3G clamshell with 5MP autofocus camera (2nd VGA for video calls), 2.2in 262k QVGA LCD and integrated Gmail client. There's 100MB of onboard memory and a microSD expansion slot which takes its place beside an FM tuner and MP3, WMA, AAC music player. It won't surface until June now, though I suspect it'll drop 5MP cameraphones to a new affordable low when it does.

Also helping the mid-range is Nokia which has pulled out the '6650' - a 3G clamshell with integrated GPS and external touch-sensitive music controls. A 2MP camera and FM tuner means this isn't anything we haven't seen before (if you follow that?), but T-Mobile is said to have landed it as an initial exclusive in Europe and it's bound to be reasonably priced.

Now let's go high-end and touchscreen fellas, please...
