The Sony Ericsson W995 Preview

Walkman is a revolutionary new mobile device, which will never leave you bored. In addition to being a striking new mobile phone, the W995 Walkman will also accept and organize your media, allowing you to take it with you, and enjoy it wherever you go. This new marvel of technology, utilizes Turbo 3G wireless technologies, coupled with the existing Wi-Fi network systems, to bring you the most reliable and fastest access to the internet that you have ever seen on a mobile device.

The W995 Walkman boasts the capability to screen movies, television shows, or news in extremely high quality on the phone’s high definition LCD screen. Because the phone uses an LCD screen you will see an unparalleled battery life in the W995, even while using it to watch movies on the crystal-clear 2.6 inch screen. The built-in 3G and Wi-Fi access capabilities, will allow you to check your emails and receive attachments, no matter where you are travelling or what you are doing. These features will allow you to update your own personal or business websites, or simply check out the latest and greatest YouTube videos at the press of a button. This would have to be the most versatile and advanced mobile entertainment device on the market.

The W995 Walkman also makes downloading media, and sorting it, easier than ever before, as it comes equipped with Sony’s new Media Go software. This allows you to transfer any number of media files between your computer and the phone with the press of a button. It can sort your files by type, genre, artist, and many other criteria, plus offers handy web browsing technology to help you track down podcasts and other downloadable or streaming internet media. Sony spokesmen promise that the Media Go software will preserve frame rates and resolutions during the transfer processes, so that anything that you download from your computer will look just as stellar when you replay it on your W995 Walkman.

This system also sports phenomenal audio capabilities, being able to store and sort thousands of full-length songs. It can play them through a high quality speaker system built right into the phone or through headphones. The W995 Walkman is also equipped with an 8.1 megapixel camera, so you will take only crisp, high-quality pictures with your mobile phone, and your friends and family will swear that they must have been taken using a cutting edge digital camera. You are even able to take pictures up to the full A3 size without having to sacrifice any qualitym as is typical with older generation mobile phones. The system memory is composed of an 8 GB memory stick, allowing you to store thousands of files of any type.

The phone itself is a chic little package. It is incredibly thin and sports a built-in stand, which can be used for viewing media with friends. The 2.6 inch screen is not equipped with touch-screen technology, which is a blessing in a system like this. Touch screen mobile devices, such as the iPhone, quickly develop unsightly scratches and smudges on the screen which make it unreadable. This becomes a problem if you want to watch videos on your mobile device, or even navigate through your address book. Rather, the W995 Walkman is equipped with an ergonomic tactile interface that will leave your screen, scratch and smudge-free, but still will not make your fingers ache from using a complicated interface.

The Sony Ericsson W995 Walkman truly combines the best aspects of modern mobile technology to bring you the best in audio and video playback. The camera on this phone rivals even the best digital cameras on the market, and the new Sony Media Go software makes it possible to manage up to 8 GB of media without any effort at all. The W995 Walkman is by far the best value for a mobile entertainment device on the market.
