Sony Ericsson Introduces W710 Walkman Phone for Sports Fans
Sony Ericsson is introducing the W710 Walkman phone, designed to support an active, sporty lifestyle. The Sony Ericsson W710 includes a motion sensor plus new fitness applications that measure the user's running speed, distance and time, or simply count steps.

The jogging application can be accessed from both the secondary display and main display to measure both speed and distance covered while out running. There’s also a daily step counter that resets automatically at midnight and progress is displayed even when the phone is on standby.

The fitness application, Walkman player and FM radio can all be controlled using the external display and the quick access keys next to it.

Users will notice the Walkman player updated interface, niw including search and sort by artist, album, track and playlist, plus the FM Radio with RDS.

A music recognition service is also present. The users can discover the title and artist of a song through the TrackID service powered by Gracenote Mobile MusicID. It is possible to identify songs by simply recording a few seconds 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 W710 phone.
