Sony Ericsson Unveils Walkman Phone



Courtesy of Mobile Pipeline

Sony Ericsson Tuesday unveiled a device that combines a cellular phone with music playback.

The company said its W600 Walkman Phone will be released in the U.S. in the last quarter of this year. Besides supporting music playback, the device has built-in Bluetooth and EDGE cellular data capabilities, although it doesn't have Wi-Fi support. It comes with software for moving music from PCs or online music stores to the device. It also has a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera.

Users also can turn off the cellular phone functionality and simply listen to music, which is useful for preserving battery life and while in-flight, the company said in a statement. It said the device will operate for 15 hours with the phone on and for 30 hours with the phone switched off.

While the company didn't specify how much memory was available for storing audio files, it did say that it could store between 80 and 120 songs, depending on formatting, which is far less than most dedicated audio players.

The company provided no pricing information.

Like it. The price is about right.
