Sony Ericsson has launched a trio of new Walkman phones, the W302, W595 and W902. Each focuses on music, although in the case of the W902 there’s also a very respectable 5-megapixel camera, 2.2-inch QVGA display and built-in stereo speakers. An included 8GB Memory Stick Micro M2 card has space for over 8,000 songs.
Ubiquitous wireless headphones are perhaps the no-brainer Next Big Thing in the portable media market, waiting only on battery life that can keep up. Last year we reviewed one of the first PMPs to feature the Bluetooth A2DP profile, Samsung’s YP-T9, and now Gear Diary’s Doug has been spending some time with Sony’s long-coming retort, the NWZ-A828K Walkman. Announced back in February as part of the company’s new PMP lineup, the headline feature might be wireless but the 2.4-inch display and 3/8ths of an inch thickness don’t hurt either.
Sony has unveiled its latest entry-level Walkman PMPs, and if the battle with Apple’s Shuffle was based on color options then Sony would be ahead of the game. The NWD-E020F-series will be available in 1GB and 2GB capacities and feature Sony’s Quick Charge technology; that means up to 28hrs of continuous playback from just a single hour’s charge. It also has an FM radio and 3-line color LCD.
Those that have a relative to shop for this Christmas that can’t let go of technology that was abandoned long ago might want to keep this Walkman Necklace in mind. Not only does it have that sentimental value, it is one of the better designs I’ve seen. Although it is slightly cheesy, it features great craftsmanship.
The first wave of W910i’s are all being recalled by Orange. Why? Because the phone function is somehow causing the device to switch off after 10 seconds and its also not answering calls.
Well, that kinda makes a phone, well, not a phone, doesn’t it? Some people who are returning them, are getting exchanges, and then the exchanges are having the same damn problem.
Late last month a mysterious Sony Ericsson handset purporting to be the W890 showed up on a Polish auction site; now researchers at Swedish cellphone magazine Mobilhave spotted an advert for the upcoming handset, set to succeed the popular W880i. With larger, less tic-tac-like keys and HSDPA access, the phone will also support European UMTS high-speed cellular internet access.
