SONY Ericsson, the Swedish-Japanese phone maker, has unveiled a Wii-like handset which allows users to play games using the phone as a motion sensor.

"This is our first foray into motion gaming," Howard Lewis, vice president and head of the product business unit, said of the F305 mobile phone launch held in conjunction with CommunicAsia, an industry convention and exhibition.

"We see gaming as a way to interact with our young customers ... it's a new area of the market that Sony Ericsson is entering into," he said.

With the F305 phone, the device itself acts as a motion sensor when playing pre-loaded games including bowling and bass fishing, the company said.

Japanese video game giant Nintendo's wildly popular Wii console is known for its innovative motion-sensitive controller.

That seems kind of strange... I assume you would have to hook it up to a television? If so, you'd think the quality of the games would be infinitely better on the Wii (shovelware aside), so why not go for that? If not, then... how would you see what you're doing? Bowling might work if you bowl and then look at the screen after, but fishing?
