Walkman Phones are Here

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

In case you haven’t heard, Sony Ericsson has recently announced their line of Walkman Phones (cellphones) including both the ‘candy bar’ (non-flip, buttons on the front) style w800, and the swivel version (the top swivels up to reveal the keypad) w600. They have also just announced a w550 for Europe and the Asias.

The w600 has a ton packed into it’s tiny 3.6 x 1.8 x .9 inch, bright orange frame.


Says the Sony site, the w600 Walkman Phone is a “mobile phone for music lovers. FM radio, an advanced digital music player inside and everything you need to enjoy your music on the move. CD ripping software is included in the kit to get your favorite songs into your phone. Drag and drop using Disc2Phone. Swivel-action W600i has a 1.8″ color screen for best possible video viewing and gaming experience and dedicated gaming buttons for fast and action-packed 3D gaming on the go. When you want to catch some action, W600i is also an impressive 1.3 megapixel camera with video recording and digital camera menus.”

Did you catch that? The Walkman phones don’t just play your favourite ripped music, they also have built-in FM tuners!
Even better, it is Edge-compatible, and Bluetooth-enabled, making it the perfect work-around-town phone.

With up to 8.5 hours of talk and 400 hours of standby on a single charge, it’s just the phone for a gal (or guy) on the go!
