Sony Ericsson W880i - MP3 phone|
“Our Walkman phones have proven to be phenomenally attractive to our consumers - we have sold 20 million Walkman phones since launch - and we are continuously developing the portfolio to extend their appeal,” says Steve Walker, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Ericsson. “The W880 / W888 mobile phone proves how the Walkman phone can appeal to different lifestyles. The Sony Ericsson W880 / W888 is a hi-specification device that looks every bit as good as it sounds.
Sony Ericsson W880 mp3 phone - 1GB capacity
The W880 / W888 represents a milestone in the Walkman phone portfolio. Although without doubt one of the slimmest music phones available with a 1GB capacity, the true beauty of its design is seen in the brushed stainless steel finish and the stand-out colour variants; either Steel Silver or Flame Black.
Sony Ericsson W880 - Features
Of course, the W880 / W888 is about more than just good looks. The Disc2Phone music management software allows the user to transfer their tracks easily and with no fuss from PC straight onto the phone. With Bluetooth Audio Streaming, all of that music can be enjoyed wirelessly on a Stereo Bluetooth Headset such as the HBH-DS970, or by streaming music directly to a home or car stereo (via the new Music Bluetooth Receiver MBR-100). Importantly for a music phone, all of this functionality has been introduced without having to compromise on battery life. The W880 / W888 delivers up to 18 hours music listening time & features a Flight Mode which allows the phone to be switched-off in mobile-prohibited environments.

Sony Ericsson also announces 2 new music accessories that make your Walkman phone a complete music listening centre. Users can listen to the music on their phone in hi-fi sound quality with the Bluetooth Music Receiver MBR-100. This discreet accessory streams music via Bluetooth from the user’s phone straight to a home or car stereo, using the phone as a remote control to alter the volume or skip through tracks. The 3.5mm input or RCA cable provided fits most home or car hi-fi systems. The MBR-100 was announced in January 2007 and will be available from Q1 2007.
Sony Ericsson Portable Speakers MPS-70
Of course, if a user wishes to share their tunes, no matter where they are, they can do this with the Portable Speakers MPS-70. Light on power as well as weight, these compact speakers plug into the phone, contain an FM antenna for improved radio reception and will also run off the phone’s battery. Tuned for Sony Ericsson phones, the MPS-70 delivers great sound and, with a design that’s a true match for Walkman phones, no one will want to leave home without them. Available from Q2 2007.
