Sony Ericsson W910i - Future phone

Sony Ericsson W910i

Sony Ericsson W910i

16 June 2007
Written by Mike Meers

It’s been a busy time at the Sony Ericsson camp, announcing several new phones in Berlin over the last day or so. Introducing the W910i – the newest sliding form factor handset from Sony Ericsson. The W910i is a HSDPA-enabled music companion “designed for entertainment.” The handset includes the latest Walkman music player, a 2mpx digital camera, Memory Stick Micro support, stereo FM radio, USB Mass Storage Device and Bluetooth connectivity, and dedicated Internet applications.

Following the usual slider form factor design, the W910i has its display and basic functionality keys on the front for easy accessibility. Sliding the top forward reveals the numerical keypad for number and text input. The display itself is 262,144 colours and measures 240 x 320 pixels.

The W910i supports HSDPA and UMTS data on the 2100MHz frequency, but also supports the three usual GSM networks – GSM 900, 1800, and 1900MHz. The HSDPA data protocol brings high speed broadband access to the handset, practically eliminating wait times on file downloads. You can even stream video and audio to the handset using the integrated multimedia player. There is also an integrated forward-facing digital camera for video calling over 3G networks.

The 2mpx camera module on the W910i captures still images at up to 1600 x 1200 pixels, and has 2.5x digital zoom. It doesn’t look like the camera is an autofocus model, which is a bit of a shame. The camera viewfinder application can blog images and video direct to your online blog in a few button presses. If you prefer to share your multimedia with a select few, there’s also MMS and e-mail messaging.

The W910i has motion sensors which can be programmed to play a song or playlist when a specific movement is made. The operating system can also be oriented horizontally or vertically, depending on which way you are holding it. The motion sensors also come into play when gaming, tilting the handset forward, backwards, left or right will perform the appropriate action inside the game!

40MB of internal shared memory is offered out of the box, but fortunately Memory Stick Micro cards are supported – and there’s a 1GB card in the sales package! Transferring files to the memory couldn’t be easier with the drag & drop functionality of the USB Mass Storage Device profile. If you prefer wireless freedom, Bluetooth is also supported – the included software can handle both types of connections.

The Sony Ericsson W910i will be available in the fourth quarter of 2007 in two colour combinations – hearty red or noble black. The handset weighs just 86 grams and measures an attractive 99.5 x 50 x 12.5mm when closed.
