Sony Ericsson Jalou Review


Welcome to the Sony Ericsson Jalou review/information page. The Jalou is one of the few flip phones made by the company.  The Jalou is not a feature powerhouse but marketed as a design statement for females.  Themes and functions are largely pointless unless you are into horoscopes and step and calorie counting.  Unfortunately most style conscious girls prefer the iPhone despite the high price.

The Jalou is a relatively small phone but quite thick.  It is not as stylish as the older Motorola V8 or V9 but it does look and fit into your bag well.

As with the latest SE mobile phones we haven’t been able to get our hands on a real one yet so this page is ‘reserved’ for the full review when that happens.  However we don’t think we’ll do one due to the expected high end price.

In mid-2010 the Jalou has finally been released and the surprise is the price tag.  You can buy one for less than $200 in most stores that stock them.  It does look quite good and it something different from the mass of touch screen and candybar models.
