Sony Ericsson Pureness gets £530 UK launch in November

Sony Ericsson's Pureness cellphone has been confirmed for the UK, but the company is not going for the usual pile-'em-high strategy.  Instead, when the handset - which has a translucent-display - arrives in November, would-be buyers will need to trek to Selfridges and design museum shops; that's because, according to SE spokesperson Cathy Davies, the Pureness is an "iconic niche product, not mass market."
