Another new phone presented today by Sony Ericsson is their W910 Walkman phone. One of the most special features of this phone is that it features motion sensing: Select Shake control and just flick the phone to control games or skip and shuffle between tracks. Or opt for SensMe and discover music to match your mood and tempo.
Shake it up
With Shake control you can skip your music forward one track if it’s flicked one way and back if it’s flicked another. Shake the W910 back and forth and it shuffles your playlist. It also adds a new dimension to mobile gaming. If you tire of using the dedicated gaming buttons, just steer the W910 from left to right to make your move.
Bring it down
The W910 Walkman phone will feature the latest version of the PlayNow mobile download service (PlayNow 4.0). This gives the user instant access to an extensive catalogue of games, mastertones and music, including thousands of tracks from Sony BMG. Preview, select and pay for tracks, all in just a few clicks, and download them on demand directly to your phone.
Match your mood
Choose your music to suit your mood with SensMe, a completely new way to browse music on your Walkman phone. Search your collection and create playlists based on tempo and style rather than on artist or album. The unique visual shows each of your tracks as dots in a matrix, placed along a horizontal and vertical axis according to their attributes. This way you can circle a group of tracks that match your mood to create a playlist, or simply select individual tunes as you wish. An alternative to the phone’s more conventional music catalogue, SensMe is the perfect way to create a soundtrack to your life.
The phone has a 2.4" LCD display, 40MB build-in memory and a 2 megapixel digital camera. It measures 99 x 50 x 12.55m and weighs 86g. The standby time is 400 hours (350 with UMTS), talk time 9 hours (3.5 hours with UMTS), video call time 3 hours 20 minutes and the music listening time 20 hours.
The Sony Ericsson W910 Walkman will be available in the fourth quarter of this year.
