Solidworks and Sony/Ericsson dancing down the street

Solidworks and Sony/Ericsson seems to be more than individual line dancing, actually seems like they really like to dance together.

Back in December 2008 there was this blog post here on cadcamstuff.com.
Will James Bond call Solidworks next time?” describing how the Scandinavian cell phone manufacture where buying Solidworks seats.

A month later it was posted that Sony/Ericsson was going to go on stage at SolidworksWorld 2009.

Jon Hirschtick made a visit to Sweden and out of that visit came this cool look inside there design process at Sony/Ericsson.

3D rapid printing is not new, but it is getting very affordable, looking at the video you can see Sony/Ericsson is using a Viper HA model from California based 3D Systems, and of course to create the circle, 3D Systems are a Solidworks partner.

Will James Bond call Solidworks next time?

Sony Ericsson who has supplied James Bond with cell phones in his last couple of adventures announced in the beginning of this month that they have purchased 20 seats of Solidworks Professional in a attempt to shorten product development time.

So maybe next time James Bond is in the situation where a hot girl need to reach him, or he just need to call mom, Q himself could have been using Solidworks.
And with Solidworks I off course would expect a cooler looking phone, especially if it is almost $300.
