Sony Ericsson W8 Sleek

Sony Ericsson being one of the leading manufacturers in Mobile Phones and Smartphones has gone one step ahead for the music lovers. It has introduced its first Walkman Android Phone, the W8. Walkman being the favourite series of mine and also because i own two of them, i always wanted it to be more advanced and packed with more features, Sony Ericsson has again proven just that which makes it so unique than the other companies.

Lets take a look at what features this phone has to offer:

  • Nice features first, the Phone is loaded with Android 2.1 (Eclair) OS. Thanks to this, now you are not restricted to just Java apps but can install all the free Android apps and also play the latest Angry Bird Rio game too.
  • Upto 23 h 40 min of music play. (Surprised? Well dont be, thats the advantage of having a WALKMAN phone.)
  • 600 MHz ARM 11 processor with 168 MB of RAM, Qualcomm chipset and an Adreno 200 GPU.
  • Great connectivity options such as 3G, WiFi giving you a ย faster internet experience.
  • 3.2 MP camera with Geo-tagging and videos recorded at 30 FPS.

  • That’s cool, man. But I have always wondered why they prefer to use mobile phones as music players instead. ๐Ÿ˜
    Anyway, thanks for keeping us updated Gautam! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • thanx a lot for the comment muru! ๐Ÿ™‚ as for your question, its simple, mobile phones serve all the three purposes…they r mobile i.e. portable, they r phones which are communication devices and they are walkman i.e. music players on the go!!! Whereas separate music players are designed to deliver only music, they are not multipurpose or versatile devices! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I was quite disappointed with Sony Ericsson as it had not introduced any Android phone. Thanks for the update. This phone will rock for sure provided it has decent pricing.
