Sony Ericsson shows shake-to-shuffle Walkman phone

Sony Ericsson’s been busy, busy, busy this week: in addition to announcing an upgraded Cyber-shot camera phone, it debuted a pair of new Walkman music phones – once controlled simply by shaking, rattling or rolling it.

Sony Ericsson’s W960: Symbian runner

What really makes the W960 stand out is its foundation on the Symbian operating system – it’s smart phone as music phone – complete with 240 x 320, 262,144-colour touch screen, stylus and jog dial as per Sony Ericsson’s P-series smart phones.

Likewise, it has Wi-Fi on board and the Opera web browser pre-loaded. For cellular connectivity, it has tri-band GSM/GPRS and 3G radios.

It’s a more traditionally styled, black model, and comes bundled with a Bluetooth stereo headset. There’s a 3.2-megapixel camera on board and 8GB of memory. Like the W910 it has an RDS-capable FM radio.

All three handsets are due to arrive in the shops in Q4.
