Sony Ericsson W595 - Future phone

Sony Ericsson W595

Sony Ericsson W595

25 July 2008
Written by Mike Meers

The third release for Sony Ericsson’s Walkman line this week is the W595 – an all-rounder built for sharing music with friends around you. The handset comes with the usual Walkman functionality as well as an included 2GB memory card, support for HSDPA networks, a QVGA resolution LCD display, 3.2mpx digital camera, Bluetooth and USB, and direct printing support courtesy of PictBridge.

This funky slider has built-in motion sensors which work hand-in-hand with the Walkman music application to change tracks, pause, and perform other functions. Who needs buttons anyway? The player supports MP3, AAC, and a range of other audio formats. With Sony Ericsson’s SensMe technology you can let the W595 do the hard work for you and create playlists based on tempo and mood – slow or fast, happy or sad. MegaBass technology is also included.

The W595 has built-in high quality stereo speakers for you to share your music with friends, but if you’re after a more personal experience plug in the sharing jack inside the sales package to split the audio between two sets of headphones. Cute!

Other multimedia features include the 3.2mpx digital camera with 2.5x digital zoom, PlayNow MP3 ring tones and an FM stereo radio with RDS technology.

Sony Ericsson have been kind enough to load the W595 with a 2GB memory card out of the box, but if you find yourself cramming that with songs and music and you’re after something a bit larger you can go for a higher capacity card. The W585 supports Memory Stick Micro standard cards.

With HSDPA technology mobile internet has never been faster. Streaming video is better than ever and you can download full songs to your handset in a matter of seconds. E-mails with large attachments? No problem. The W595 supports the UMTS 2100MHz band (HSDPA up to 3.6Mbit/s) which is widely used in Australia for 3G connectivity. A forward-facing digital camera can be found on the W595 for video calling, too.

The W595’s LCD display is a 262,144 colour panel at 320 x 240 pixels. On the front of the slider you will find the LCD and a strip of circular navigational keys – so for many functions, you don’t even have to slide the handset open (which will reveal the numerical keypad).

The W595 will be made available in four colour combinations: active blue, cosmopolitan white, jungle grey, and ruby black. You can expect the handset on our market sometime in Q4 2008.
