Nano-style Walkman phone

Sony Ericsson today unveiled its latest Walkman phone, and announced it has sold over 3 million Walkman phones since their debut last year. Reuters reports that the W950 phone has 4GB of memory, thus providing the same storage as an Apple iPod nano. The new iPod-competing phone comes as more companies are planning MP3 capable phones. The phone will reportedly cost between 300 and 400 euros, and will run on the Symbian operating system (availability was not stated).

    these phones rock!

    I love the Sony Ericsson line of phones, and the Walkman phones are even better. If Apple was going to work with a phone maker to integrate iTunes I wish it was SE. I'm planning on getting the W810 or 950 whether it integrates iTunes or not. Small workaround to get my songs on there but it's worth it.

    I've brought up my concerns with wanting to go to the gym or hiking and wanting to be able to listen to music, the radio and have my phone for calls. Someone always writes that I should carry my iPod, a small fm receiver, and a phone.

    I've always thought that I shouldn't have too. With the Walkman phones, you don't compromise.

    Sweet phones and work great with bluetooth, iSync, and Salling Clicker on the Mac. The most Mac friendly phone maker out there.

    not that friendly

    first of all, you can't sync a 610 walkman phone with mac osx (could be apple's fault, could be sony's), without hacksie workarounds.

    secondly, while i love my orange phone and put up with the retarded flip around to open, their interfaces are clunky. i have had my walkman phone for two weeks and it has some idiotarian UI functionalities. i miss my moto.

    there is a reason sony is not dominating the personal electronics market.
