We’ve been bombarded with all sorts of leaked pictures and conjecture-powered specs, but now it’s official: the Sony Ericsson W880/W888 super slim Walkman phone is here, and it’s bringing its W610 cousin along for a ride.
Previously known as the Ai, the W880/W888 is the slimmest Sony Ericsson phone to date. Measuring just 9.4mm thick, this multimedia phone has Walkman 2.0, a 2.0 megapixel camera, Disc2Phone, Memory Stick Micro (M2) expansion, and your choice of stainless Steel Silver or Flame Black finishes. The W880 comes with video telephony capabilities, thanks to its UMTS 2100 radio, whereas the W888 is more of a straight-forward GSM unit. Both sport 1GB of Memory Stick Micro.
The W610 probably won’t get the same level of attention as its slimmer cousin, but it’s still got all the goodies you’ve come to expect from an adequately equipped Walkman phone, including the music player, 2 megapixel camera with auto focus and video, Picture blogging support, RDS FM Radio, flight mode, Bluetooth A2DP, and quad-band GSM with EDGE. Look for it in Plush Orange and Satin Black with 512MB of Memory Stick Micro.
The W880/W888 and W610 are expected to start shipping to “selected markets” in Q1 and Q2 of this year, respectively.
