A Quick Preview of the Sony Ericsson W980i Walkman Smartphone

The Sony Ericsson W980i is the company's latest flagship walkman handset, and offers a new unique feature that Sony Ericsson describe as 'Walkman on Top' – giving the full functionality of a Walkman player without even having to open your phone.

The entire Walkman player that would normally be displayed on the inside of your handset is also replicated on the outside of the flip, so navigation through your music library is effortless.

The W980i is feature packed and includes 8GB of internal storage (it can hold around 8000 songs), a 3.2MP camera, 3G connectivity (HSDPA) and pretty much every possible Walkman feature including TrackID music identification, Shake Control, PlayNow downloads and 'SenseMe' mood analysis.

The most interesting feature of the W980i is the inclusion of a built-in FM transmitter so you can send music to your car stereo or any nearby radio without the needs for wires.

The W980i extends this premium Walkman experience by also including ‘Clear Stereo’ which enables the music to sound like the original recording and ‘Clear Bass’ which delivers distortion free sound even at higher volumes.

These features combine with the premium headphones, the Stereo Portable Handsfree HPM-77, to deliver an incredible clear audio experience.
