Sony Ericsson launches new W660i Walkman phone

Sony Ericsson's new W660i Walkman phone is essentially the W880i but with a different design. It's comes in a Record Black veneer or a rather new fetching Rose Red finish (something of a departure for the orange and black Walkman family) and is quite trim with a 14.5mm profile but when it comes to features nothing has moved on.

So just like the W880i, you get 3G-capabilities, a two-megapixel camera with integrated picture blogging (but sadly lacking autofocus), a Memory Stick Micro slot to store your tunes (a 512MB card is supplied). and a front loaded camera for video calling.

The W660i also carries the latest Walkman 2.0 music player that offers album artwork and a slick new graphic user interface. Sony Ericsson's version of Shazam's music recognition technology, TrackID, is also embedded so you can identify music by holding the phone up to the source. The W660i also supports the A2DP profile for wireless Bluetooth streaming of music in stereo to compatible headphones and speakers plus packs a built-in FM radio. The phone is expected to be available sometime between April and June.

Also launched with the W660i is the MPS-75 snap on speakers. You basically plug the speakers into the phone's charger port and blast out your music. The MPS-75 will again be available between April and June.
