Reports from the GSMA World Congress have been touting that Sony Ericsson are releasing a new line, the G series which will be Symbian Based, Touch Screen phones.

Two models have been announced, the G700 which is entry level and the G900 which is geared towards a photo happy crowd. The G900 is reported to have a 5 mega-pixel camera, with red eye reduction and a flash. One cool feature is that when using the touch screen in camera mode, you can actually manipulate the camera’s focal point, which does sound promising if you are into mobile photography

Both are candy bar phones, but one would have to think is this all because of the Iphone?
