Sony W880 and W200 Phones

Cellphone partnership Sony-Ericsson today added two new phones to its Walkman music player line. At the highest end of the spectrum is the now official W880, nicknamed the "Ai." Although the company provided few official details beyond a teaser image for the handset (pictured), previous leaks confirm that the phone will be one of the most advanced Walkman phones and will have HSDPA as well as a front-facing video chat camera. Sony-Ericsson promises a release by mid-2007.

At the opposite end of the spectrum is the W200, a simpler model the company hopes will serve as an ideal starter for music phones. The W200 shares the same quick access button for the Walkman music player but foregoes some of the technologies that regularly price other phones out of reach. The phone is equipped with a VGA camera and supports GPRS for Internet access, and comes pre-supplied with a 128MB Memory Stick Micro that holds enough AAC or MP3 songs for a playlist. Versions of the phone will be ready for the US, Europe, and other regions by the spring of this year. Click through for a profile photo.
