New Walkman Phones from Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson W910 Walkman Phone

The Sony Ericsson W910 Walkman phone has it all – music, 3D games, video and high-speed Web access. Its 2.6-inch LCD screen serves as a flawless viewing platform for its 3.2-megapixel camera and as a widescreen for watching video in TV quality. On top of that, it offers new ways of using a smartphone.

Flick it one way to skip your music one track ahead, or flick it back to go the other way. It’s called Shake control. If you shake the phone back and forth, it takes you to shuffle mode. In mobile gaming, Shake control lets you steer the W910 left or right, à la Wii, to make your move.

You can also 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.

The W910’s 1GB Memory Stick Micro, provided, has room for over 900 songs. Want more? Stick in a bigger memory card, or go for its bigger brother, the W960 Walkman phone which comes with an 8GB memory card.
