Sony Ericsson W800 is the first Walkman branded mobile phone and brings high quality digital music. W800 is the first product to combine a mobile phone, a high quality digital music player with up to 30 hours' battery life, and a 2 Megapixel camera in a slim, lightweight device with stylish design.
W800 probably will become a serious contestant in the digital music player market due to its supreme sound quality. The W800 is supplied with hi-tech stereo headphones and it is compatible with the proven, industry standard MP3 and AAC music file formats. Storage capacity is also plentiful as the supplied 512 MB Memory Stick Duo gives capacity for around 150 music tracks. In addition, loading music into the player is a breeze thanks to the supplied Disk2Phone software, which enables quick, convenient transfer of music CD's onto the phone via a PC.
An incoming call will ring through the stereo headphones, allowing people not to miss a call when listening music. If the user chooses to take the call, the music is paused for the call's duration. The music player is operated with just one Direct Music button that plays, pauses and stops tracks, and player and phone can be used independently of each other, so for example the user can switch the phone off for a plane journey while still enjoying the music player.
W800 has a powerful battery that will play for 15 hours if the phone is switched on, or up to 30 hours if it is not. Weighing in at less than 100g, the W800 also offers a 2 Megapixel camera complete with autofocus, picture light, active lens cover and digital still camera interface. There are useful accessories such as the MMC-60 Music Cable which connects the device to play out on a stereo hi-fi, and the HCA-60 Advanced Car Handsfree which allows music to be played through car speakers.
