By 01:02 Fri, 09 Jul 2021 Comments

Just as expected, today Sony Ericsson announced their recent Walkman phone - the Sony Ericsson W705. The high-discontinue slider is the first music-dedicated feature phone by the company to feature Wi-Fi. Unluckily the rumored GPS connectivity seems to have been dropped out but at least the rest of the specs sheet seems pretty decent.

The Sony Ericsson W705 comes with a 2.4" QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display capable of showing up to 256K colors. Some of its more vital features include a 3.2 MegaPixel (MP) fixed-focus snapper, Frequency Modulation (FM) radio with RDS, quad-band Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) and dual-band (900/2100 MHz) 3G support.

The typical for the Walkman family niceties - Shake control and SensMe are also available in the W705. The phone will come with 120 Mega Bytes (MB) of internal memory that can be expanded through the M2 card slot for storing your favorite tracks. In addition there will be a 4GB memory card included in the retail package to grant generous storage power straight out of the box.

Sony Ericsson W705 will hit the shelves in two different flavors - W705 and W705u (exclusive to Orange). It will become available in Luxury Silver and Passionate Red color versions starting from Q1 of 2009.

Sony Ericsson made also another announcement - the wireless 2.1 speaker system MBS-900. It has integrated Frequency Modulation (FM) radio receiver and a 3.5mm standard audio jack. The unit has monochrome Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display and Bluetooth functionality with A2DP support. Packing the impressive power output of 2x10W plus a 20W subwoofer the MBS-900 seems quite up to the task of sound-screening your next picnic.
