Sony Ericsson announces W760 Walkman Phone with HSDPA
      01/07/08 01:59 AM

Sony Ericsson today announced the W760, the first truly global Walkman phone with tri-band HSDPA and Quad-band EDGE, enabling broadband speed downloads of the latest music and content wherever in the world it is used. Offering music on your mobile and much more, the phone delivers built-in GPS to help you find that secret gig, built-in Stereo Speakers for sharing your music and the latest hit games, including Need for Speed ProStreet.

Find your way with GPS
Looking for the location of a gig or a new club? Even a new city poses no challenge for the W760. The phone?s built-in GPS with Wayfinder Navigator lets you search over 20 million points of interest around the globe and talks you to your destination every turn of the way. There?s also a GPS-supported fitness application called Tracker that can tell you how fast, for how long and how far you ran (or walked!).

Share your music with your friends
Become the focal point of a spontaneous party or gaming experience with the W760?s powerful built-in stereo speakers. If outdoors, use the phone with the Active Speaker MAS-100 ? a revolutionary case that not only looks fantastic, but also protects your Walkman phone at the same time as being a built-in speaker and FM radio antenna for enjoying music with friends.

Set the mood with the right music
The W760 helps select the right music for the occasion. Store up to 950 tracks on your phone, and uses SensMe to pick the music and tracks that match your mood in an instant. Navigate through a playlist with Shake Control ? shuffle and skip through tracks, or adjust the volume, with just a shake of the phone.

The TrackID functionality allows you to identify any song you are listening to on the FM Radio or at a club. And with TrackID Charts, you can also review the most searched tracks in your country or anywhere in the world.

The intuitive Media User Interface rotates depending on how you?re holding the phone, so you can see everything you need at a glance. Auto rotate works for photos, videos and games too. Just twist the phone to change the view.

Get a piece of the gaming action
With the W760, gaming is more fun than ever. The phone allows you to play in landscape mode, with sound from stereo speakers and use of dedicated gaming buttons like a game console. It is preloaded with the latest games, including Need for Speed ProStreet ? where high speed and utter adrenaline collide. The W760 is built for fast-paced action with a large 2.2? screen for great gameplay and Motion Sensor Gaming that allows you to play top games on your phone in 3D quality, using the motion of the phone to control the game.

Capture the moment
A quality 3.2 megapixel camera is built in to the phone. Just slide open the phone, press the camera button and capture the moment! Pictures can be stored on the 1GB Memory Stick or transferred to a PC using Media Manager.

The W760 is a UMTS/HSDPA 850/1900/2100 and GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 phone that will be available in selected markets from Q2 2008.
