Sony Ericsson today launched the first mobile phone under the Walkman brand - the W800. This multifunctional phone allows you to call, listen to music and to take pictures and video. The Walkman phone from Sony Ericsson combined a digital music player with up to 30 hours of battery life with a 2 megapixel camera.
The Walkman cell phone should offer excellent stereo sound quality, it supports both the MP3 and AAC music file formats. With the included 0.5GB Memory Stick Duo you will be able to storage roughly 150 music tracks on the W800.
The W800’s intuitive interface makes it a breeze to use the music player and the functionality of phone, music player and camera are carefully integrated. Also, owners need never miss a call when listening to music, as the phone ring is played through the stereo headphones. If the user chooses to take the call the music is paused for the call’s duration. The music player is operated with just one Direct Music button that plays, pauses and stops tracks, and player and phone can be used independently of each other, so for example the user can switch the phone off for a plane journey while still enjoying the music player.
Battery life is a key consideration for owners and the W800’s battery has enough stamina for the longest journeys – it will play for 15 hours’ if the phone is switched on, or up to 30 hours if it isn’t.
Although weighing in at less than 100g, the W800 also offers a 2 Megapixel camera complete with autofocus, picture light, active lens cover and digital still camera interface, so great photos can be taken in a variety of conditions.
