Sony Ericsson W902 W595

Sony Ericsson this morning launched a major upgrade to its Walkman series, starting with two higher-end models. The W902 (shown) promises to improve on other music phones with an enhanced stereo field and bass response; the bar phone also comes with premium earphones and an 8GB Memory Stick Micro that lets it hold as much as many portable media players. It also touts a 5-megapixel camera unusually sharp for the class with 16X digital zoom and basic on-phone image editing.

The W902 supports GSM and EDGE data for the US but supports 3G data only in Europe and similar areas; the phone should launch in black, green, and red sometime during the fall.

A slight step down, the W595 slider goes without the sound field enhancement, 2GB of bundled memory, and carries a 3.2-megapixel camera; unique to the W595 is a "share jack" that lets two users listen to the same music over earphones. It supports the same US bands as the W902 and will be available at the same time.
