Sony Ericsson W960i to launch in October?

4 Jul 2007 | Smartphone , Sony Ericsson | 47 comments


Remember that tri-band W960i Walkman Phone announced last month by Sony Ericsson? It looks like the Symbian OS based handset will launch earlier rather than later.

According to a poster on the SE-NSE forums, the company's newest smartphone will roll out in October and not in December as some people thought. The poster first talked to a Carphone Warehouse employee then to a Sony Ericsson representative that confirmed the launch date.

We remind you that the W960i will feature a a 2.6", 262k color TFT touchscreen (240 x 320 pixels), a 3.2 megapixel camera with 3x digital zoom, Walkman Touch Player, an 8GB hard drive and Wi-Fi.

This phone has lots of great features, too bad it's not as hyped as the iPhone.

Looks pretty cool, large screen (as the N95), good camera, very nice design - whoah 8GB integrated memory!!! It's gonna be interesting to see how the touch-screen works and what it costs - I WANT ONE!

by bic on Aug 25, 2007

I'm planning to get this unit yet it has some features I don't quite get.

Does a stylus come with it?

"Walkman Touch Player" >> Does this mean that its touchscreen is only good for the walkman menu? How about just the plain menu?

Sony ericsson w960i wowww , i have not seen a phone like this , it is classical , amazing and awesome , clarity of voice , it is indeed the flagship of technical prowess . touch sensitive screen making it even easier to navigate around. Along with a great design it comes complete with an internal memory of 8GB which will be more than enough to store thousands of music, videos and images,The display used on the Sony Ericsson W960i Mobile Phone is a 262,144 colour touch screen which gives a resolution of 240x320 pixels making it visible in even the worse lighting conditions
why wasting time and delay go get yours now to buy contact me via or you call wright on

One other issue is that if you are in a predicament where you don't have a cosigner then you may really want to try to exhaust all of your financial aid options. You can find many grants or loans and other scholarship grants that will ensure that you get money to support with classes expenses. Many thanks for the post.

Interesting information, I have definitely acquired something new. I did notice that your site was loading a bit sluggish which can really effect just how Google decides to promote your content and pages. Keep up the great work! Time to get back on the Beach, thanks!
