Last week, we were running with the Nokia pack. This week however Pocket Picks has been especially embracing Sony Ericsson's latest range of devices.

Most particularly our focus has been captured by Satio, which you might recognise as the previously codenamed Idou. It is a gorgeous thing, dominated by a 16:9, 640 x 360 pixels, 3.5-inch touchscreen plus: a 12.1 MP camera with touch focus, Xenon flash, and face and smile detection; plus hooks to new applications thanks to its connection with the PlayNow arena. Out in October, there's still no news on pricing.

Still, there were some rather fruity pictures of a young lady in her undergarments. Classy.

Continuing on the Sony Ericsson route, the company rolled out news about its forthcoming PlayNow arena with movies service. This will launch in June in Europe with the W995 Walkman phone and enable you to download up to 60 movies annually from a rolling monthly selection of 15. You'll have to sideload them from your PC though.

We also reviewed the W705 phone, which comes bundled with the neat Zeemote JS1 wireless gaming controller. But we didn't like the phone's membrane keys much. So 19(ZX)81.

Nokia has been furiously busy this week. It launched its all-singing all-shopping all-sharing Ovi Store to 50 million users. Who all promptly tried to access the good stuff, causing bottlenecks, complaining bloggers and plenty of headaches for Nokia's IT people.

It is getting better now though. Hell, we even reviewed a couple of Symbian apps in celebration. The Skyfire browser scored highly, being free and super fast. Rather more strange was MusAic; a generative music app that costs £1.50. Bleep bloop to you.

There was plenty of news from other companies as well. Palm's Pre is looking good, and now we know it's coming with iTunes support and Twitter integration which means you'll be able to search tweets as easily as any other term entered into Google's maw.

Rumours suggested Orange UK is getting its hands on its first Android device; the HTC Hero. And China Mobile loves the robot. It announced the launch of Ophone; technically a tweaked GTC Magic (aka G2).

But things were much more quiet on the iPhone front. Well, Apple's WorldWide Developers Conference is only a week away. Nevertheless, it has been suggested the Sirius XM satellite radio station will have a streaming iPhone app out later in the year. Howard Stern will be pleased. And swearing, but he’s always swearing.

Other entries to the App Store that caught our eye included a rather average and tame effort from the Suicide Girls - the free Suicide Girls - Flip Strip. Not as much fun as Sony Ericsson’s Satio model. More sophisticated was the Drink & Cocktail Recipes Pro, which Tracy found very thirst quenching.

To go with it, he tried Eucalyptus; an e-book reader that links into Project Gutenberg. Tracy declared it much better than the rival Kindle app, although the range of books is less contemporary.

There were a couple of things that impressed me this week too. One was the kooaba visual search app, which is available for iPhone and Android. Currently it handles music CDs, film DVD, games and film posters. All you do is take a photo of these and it will recognise them (usually) and store the information - with appropriate links - on your phone or online.

Much anticipated, and clearly due soon, is the Android Spotify app. We saw the first hands on demo video of this, and very good it looked.

Finally, however, the thing that got me really thinking was BudTrap - an initiative that attempts social networking and charitable giving by organising your earphone cables. It is completely mad. You really should check it out.
