Sony Ericsson W900 Walkman Phone for UMTS


Sony Ericsson has released their fourth music phone and first UMTS handset today, the W900; it sports 470MB of user free memory space which can be increased to 2GB by adding a Memory Stick PRO Duo card, now that’s a music phone.

The W900 features over-the-air (OTA) music download services, allowing tracks to be purchased and downloaded directly to the phone while on the move, as well as from a PC from your personal collection with a simple drag and drop.

With the internal 470MB of space, users can store around 120 to 240 MP3, AAC or AAC+, MIDI, WAV and XMF files. With the added 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo card, that can be increased to almost 1000 songs.

Multitasking between functions is supposed to be easier then ever, the phones ring cuts into the audio and pauses your track while you receive an incoming call.

The 2 Megapixel, autofocus camera comes with an LED flash- or picture-light, and is operated with both hands in a horizontal position for maximum stability. The camera also shoots video at up to 30fps (frames per second), double the speed of most conventional imaging phones and the playback quality threshold for television.

The Sony Ericsson W900 UMTS Walkman phone is available in black or white and is expected to ship at the end of Q4 2005. The variants will be:

* W900i Dual mode UMTS (2100MHz) – GPRS 900/1800/1900 for Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa

* W900c Dual mode UMTS (2100MHz) – GPRS 900/1800/1900 for Mainland China. Launch for mainland China dependant on availability of 3G services.
