Sony Ericsson W950 Walkman Brings Entertainment With Large Storage to 3G Phones
A major addition to Sony Ericsson’s family of Walkman phones, the W950 is an ultra-slim, ultra-stylish, UMTS-enabled device with 4GB of onboard storage complete with touch screen for simple navigation through music genres, playlists, individual songs or music albums.

The W950's sleek and compact form is finished in Mystic Purple, fingerprint-proof matt with orange accents. The keypad is flush with the surface, and with orange backlighting.

The music player within the W950 has the functionality and sound quality of an equivalent standalone device. Its 4GB storage can take up to 4,000 songs. A new graphic-rich interface on the Walkman player makes it easy to navigate around the music library by song, artist or playlist and now it’s possible to search visually by browsing through album covers using the stylus and touch screen on its QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) TFT 2.6’’ colour display.

The W950 has all the benefits of a combined phone and music player, enabling multitasking between listening to music, SMS texting, emailing and browsing the Internet.

Users can enjoy the mobile multimedia applications, from web browsing, push email and video streaming to 3D gaming and store-and-share of media files. The 4GB storage space can be used for photos, video’s or email attachments in addition to songs.

The device supports Bluetooth stereo profiles (A2DP) and can connect to the Bluetooth Stereo Headset HBH-DS970 also announced by Sony Ericsson. It measures 106 x 54 x 15 mm and weighs 112 grams. Its battery provides up to 2.5/7.5 hours (UMTS/GSM) talk time, or up to 250/340 hours (UMTS/GSM) standby time.

W950 is the third Sony Ericsson phone based on the new Symbian v9.1 and UIQ 3.0 platform, benefiting from a growing multitude of third party applications.

The Sony Ericsson W950 is a Dual Mode UMTS Walkman phone and starts shipping during Q3 2006. Regional variations are:

W950i - Dual mode UMTS (2100MHz) - GPRS 900/1800/1900 for Europe, Asia Pacific,Middle East, Africa

W950c - Dual mode UMTS (2100MHz) - GPRS 900/1800/1900 for Mainland China (launch for mainland China dependent on availability of 3G services.)
