Sony Ericsson announces W995, the new Walkman flagship
To begin with, the W995 will have a 2.6-inch QVGA scratch-resistant TFT screen, supporting up to 262k colors. The phone will be equipped with an 8.1-megapixel camera with autofocus, which we consider a really good achievement, having in mind that this would be more of a music-oriented phone. In addition, “standard” features like Wi-Fi and aGPS are also included. Out of the box, the new Walkman will come with an 8GB M2 memory card, in order to extend the 118 MB built-in memory. The music-dedicated control keys will be on the right side of the phone, and the 3.5mm jack will be on the top. Other tasty features include a PlayStation 3 compatibility, which means that you will be able to share media from the W995 to your PS3 over Wi-Fi and thus easily get it played on your TV.
The W995 will come in three color solutions: Progressive Black, Cosmic Silver and Energetic Red, aiming to satisfy all tastes. We will be able to enjoy this one in select markets from Q2 2009, available in two versions: one for the European/Asian markets with a dual-band 3G (900/2100 MHz) support and another for the U.S market, coming with a tri-band 3G (850/1900/2100 MHz).
