Sony Ericsson W660i - Future phone


Sony Ericsson W660i
 

Sony Ericsson W660i

22 March 2007
Written by Mike Meers

The latest brain child out of the Sony Ericsson camp is the W660i – a fully featured Walkman handset with a big emphasis on design. The streamlined 3G handset has the Walkman 2.0 player, FM Stereo radio, Memory Stick Micro support, a 2mpx digital camera, and a 2.0” 262,144 colour TFT LCD display.

The W660i will be made available in two different colour combinations: Rose Red and Record Black. Both models have gold trimmings around the side with circular lines around the face, and look very sassy! The handset measures just 102 x 46 x 14.5 mm and only weighs 93 grams. The W660i looks somewhat similar to the K810i, although slimmed down quite considerably!

Up to 25 hours of music listening can be milked out of the battery using the Walkman 2.0 player. The player can display Album Art, and with the included 512MB memory card up to 470 full length songs can be stored on the handset (eAAC+ format). For more space, Memory Stick Micro cards up to 1GB are supported. The capacity of the internal memory is a bare 16MB.

A 2mpx camera is included on the W660i, but it looks as though it won’t have the auto-focusing capabilities we’ve come to expect from Sony Ericsson. It does have 2.5x digital zoom, and the W660i can upload images direct to an online blog. 3G data speeds ensures this is a speedy process, but if roaming onto a 2G network GPRS can be utilized for packet data. Video recording by the camera is also supported.

XML feeds can be syndicated using the build in RSS-reader, and the Access NetFront browser can render HTML web pages. All this is brought to life by the 262,144 colour TFT LCD, which has the slightly smaller than usual 176 x 220 pixel resolution.

Bluetooth and USB 2.0 are supported for local connectivity. The handset can act as a USB Mass Storage device with compatible computers for easy drag & drop file transfers. For long range connectivity, the W660i is compatible with the UTMS 2100MHz band, and the GSM 800, 900, and 1900MHz bands. An FM stereo radio with RDS technology is built-in.

The Sony Ericsson W660i should be available in Australia very shortly.
