Sony Ericsson Walkman phones let you rock out in style.
Mobile phones come feature-packed these days. From GPS systems to high-resolution cameras, phones are never just phones, and music players are now inseparable from mobile devices. You'd struggle to find a mobile that doesn't play music in some shape or form.
Despite strong competition from Nokia's N-Series and Motorola's ROKR music phones, the Walkman branded Sony Ericssons stand out with distinctive design and arguably the best music application in mobile devices. The strong black and orange colour palette of the Walkman family has become synonymous with mobile music. This isn't to say there isn't room for improvement, for example, we'd love to see a Walkman phone with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
In the last 12 months Sony Ericsson have piled seven new Walkman phones into the market, with more on the way: the W760 and the ultra-affordable W350 due for release early in 2008. This year's Walkman phones have been slimmer and sexier than those of the previous year; including the W880i which still stands out as one of the slimmest mobile phones available in Australia.
