Sony Ericsson Introduces Entertainment Accessories for Walkman Phones
Posted on 18-Oct-2005 11:39. | Tags Filed under: News.


Sony Corporation and Sony Ericsson have announced a new jointly developed Home Audio System that enables owners of Sony Ericsson Walkman music phones (such as the newly annonced Soiny Ericsson W900) to enjoy mobile music collections in full Hi-Fi sound quality. The Home Audio System MDS-70 is a phone cradle which connects to a set of high performance speakers, so all the user need do is nest the phone in the cradle, press Play and enjoy the music.

The audio of the Home Audio System MDS-70 is made possible by Sony S-Master, a digital audio technology that is embedded in Sony products ranging from home Hi-Fi, home theatre systems to car audio, TV and Vaio PCís.

The speaker stand can be controlled from the remote control and the system charges the phone while itís nestled in the cradle. The speaker stand will be available globally from Q1 2006 from both Sony Ericsson (Home Audio System MDS-70) and Sony (Cradle Audio CPA-001) and will be distributed through consumer electronics as well as mobile telecoms outlets.

Also part of a new line of sound accessories, the Walkman-branded FM Music Transmitter MMR-60 can be attached to a Sony Ericsson mobile phone and transmit music from the handset over the FM radio frequency band.

The transmitter attaches to any Sony Ericsson mobile phone incorporating the new system connector Fast port. Menus in the mobile phone allow the user to control the transmitting frequency at a range of up to 10 meters. When a call comes in, the music stops playing and continues when the call is finished.

The MMR-60 measures only 43x27x11mm and weighs 9 grams. It will be available in limited markets (USA, South America, Australia and some countries in Asia) during December 2005, depending on each countries policies regarding FM band use.
