Sony Ericsson Introduces Stylish W980 Walkman Phone

Sony Ericsson today revealed the W980 featuring stereo speakers, audio enhancing technology, Walkman on Top design and 8GB of internal memory. It comes with the latest Stereo Portable Handsfree HPM-77 (available from June 2008 in selected markets).

The W980 Walkman phone has a built-in FM transmitter, which allows you to send whatever's playing on your phone to other devices with a built-in FM radio receiver.

The novelty has 240x320 262K color TFT display; is available in "Piano Black" color; is sized 92x46x17 mm (3.6x1.8x0.7 inches); and weighs 100 gr (3.5 oz). You may also want to visit the product page.

With the recent evolution of PlayNow arena, Sony Ericsson's over-the-air (OTA) and web download service being launched this May, you will be able to access up to 5 million tracks to maximise your music collection. The W980's TrackID feature, which can identify any track that you just can't put a name to, will be fully integrated into PlayNow arena.

You can tailor the W980's Walkman player to the music that you're listening to. This latest Walkman phone provides a choice of eight equaliser presets, each of which contains a distinct profile that is suitable to a range of music.

The Walkman on Top feature on the W980 gives you the full functionality of a Walkman player without even having to open your phone. The entire Walkman player that would normally be displayed on the inside of your clamshell is also replicated on the outside of the phone, so navigation through your music library is effortless.

Every music enthusiast knows that a great audio experience requires great quality speakers or headphones. The W980 Walkman phone comes with the new Stereo Portable Handsfree HPM-77; a headset that lets you enjoy music in powerful stereo sound. The HPM-77 also allows users to take their calls handsfree.

The new phone is a UMTS/HSDPA 2100 GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 handset that will be available in selected markets from Q3 2008.
