CTIA 2007: Sony Ericsson W580 Walkman Phone announced

26 Mar 2007 | CTIA , Sony Ericsson | 18 comments


For a second, I thought Sony Ericsson is announcing the K850i, but I was wrong. Instead, a new Walkman phone is being revealed.

At only 14mm thick, the Sony Ericsson W580 features a Walkman player 2.0 with MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+ support and according to the company, it can play up to 20 hours. The traditional FM Radio with RDS and speakerphone is also included.

The W580 will also come equipped with Music Illumination Effects, which is a fancy word for light effects along the side of the phone. Other features include a 2.0" QVGA 262K TFT screen, 2.0 megapixel camera, 12MB internal memory, 512MB Memory Stick Micro (M2) in the box, Bluetooth 2.0 (with A2DP), full HTML browser with RSS, IM, USB Mass storage and POP3/IMAP4 email.

The Sony Ericsson W580 Walkman phone will be avaible in Style White and Urban Grey starting Q3 2007.

Oh wow, this phone is perfect. Its got the bluetooth, the expandable memory for all the music i could want on a phone, and that nice 2MP camera that I know will be great. Originally, I wanted to save up to get a W900i, but since im in the US, it wouldve been pretty pricey, coming out at around $470, plus shipping and what not. but with this, ill get it as an upgrade
