Sony Ericsson's W880i – the hunt is on

Any plans for this Saturday? Well then, you won't be able to take part in Sony Ericsson's giant treasure hunt to give away five of its super-slimline W880i Walkman phones, will you?All we've seen so far of the music-spinning handset is this enigmatic photo (pictured) and one other showing a corner of the screen. Sony Eric says the lucky five who get the phones will be the first anywhere in the country to have them, 'before it’s in the shops, before it’s officially announced and before pictures are even released to the press.' Charming!Entrants will receive a hangover-disturbing text first thing on Saturday, alerting them that the opening clue has gone online. Then it's just a case of solving the clues until the treasure location is revealed.At that point the game takes on a more Rat Race element (arguably John Cleese's finest hour) as eager sleuths race to the secret location. The first five there bag a phone, the sixth just gets to lie in a pool of sweat knowing it was all for nothing.Should all this sound like too much work, we'll be attending the real launch next week, so expect the first look to come straight from Stuff.tv and direct to you from the comfort of your desktop.
