Sony Ericsson Introduces the Sony Ericsson W850 Walkman Slider
Sony Ericsson’s first GSM/UMTS slider, the Sony Ericsson W850 has been combined with a full horizontal mode camera experience and the latest Walkman player 2.0.

The phone is configured for operator over the air (OTA) music download services and accepts many popular music file formats including e-AAC+, which reduces download time and space needed for tracks. It is supplied with a 1GB memory stick PRO Duo which is enough for around 1,000 songs in e-AAC+, but it supports cards of up to 4GB.

The Walkman player 2.0 software simplifies navigation through music genres, playlists, individual songs or music albums and there’s also a TrackID feature powered by Gracenote Mobile MusicID. This is a new service where users can can record a few seconds of a song, either via the microphone or the in built FM radio, and then with one click send that clip to the Gracenote worldwide music database which will identify the track and relay the information back to the phone.

The Walkman music player presents a more intuitive user interface and makes it easy to search and play tracks as well as download them. New graphics capabilities make the experience more visual and provide music metadata and album art. And the download service is integrated, so there’s no need to come out of the music player and into the web browser to visit online music stores.

The phone has a built-in 2 megapixel digital camera. It also supports Bluetooth stereo headsets, and is compatible with car handsfree sets. Other accessory available is the Music Desk stand speakers that allow the W850 to be used as a stero player.

Users will be able to use the phone as a USB 2.0 mass storage, and access the Internet through it Access Netfront HTML browser. The phone is also compatible with RSS feeds.

The Sony Ericsson W850i is a UMTS 2100 and Tri-band GPRS 900/1800/1900 Walkman phone for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and starts shipping during Q3 2006.
