Sony Ericsson Employee Busted After Stealing Secret Prototype Phones Worth $US90K

A Sony Ericsson employee working in their Sweden HQ has been arrested for stealing top-secret prototype phones worth around $US90,000.

Naturally, no details have been released on the phones, but Sony considers them "highly valuable to competitors." Based on that, I can only assume that the employee planned to sell them to the enemy like some sort of cold war mobile phone spy. Either that, or he is just a really early adopter. [IDG via USEB]
