Las Vegas, CES 2008 -- Sony Ericsson W760:

Sony Ericsson today announced the W760, the first truly global Walkman phone with tri-band HSDPA, enabling broadband speed downloads of the latest music and content wherever in the world it is used. Offering music on your mobile and much more, the phone delivers built-in GPS to help you find that secret gig, distinctive Stereo Speakers for sharing your music and the latest hit games, including Need for Speed(TM) ProStreet.

The W760 is a Walkman phone that you will want to take with you everywhere. This is where the added protection from the multipurpose Active Speaker MAS-100 comes in. Announced today, it acts as a good-looking protective case, a speaker to let you play your tunes even louder and an FM radio antenna.

W760 Walkman phone - Enjoy and share - anywhere in the world

* Stay grounded - GPS and Wayfinder Navigator(TM)1) built-in, plus Google Maps(TM) for step-by-step directions to your destination

* Share your music inside and out - Twin speakers with Stereo Widening plus an optional Active Speaker for outdoor use

* Match your mood - choose and match your music with SensMe(TM)

* Score big - great gaming features, motion control and widescreen gameplay. Need for Speed(TM) ProStreet preloaded

Find your way with GPS

Looking for the location of a gig or a new club? Even a new city poses no challenge for the W760. The phone's built-in GPS with Wayfinder Navigator(TM)1) lets you search over 20 million points of interest around the globe and talks you to your destination every turn of the way. There's also a GPS-supported fitness application called Tracker that can tell you how fast, for how long and how far you ran (or walked!).

Share your music with your friends

Become the focal point of a spontaneous party or gaming experience with the W760's powerful built-in stereo speakers. If outdoors, use the phone with the Active Speaker MAS-100 - a revolutionary case that not only looks fantastic but also protects your Walkman phone at the same time as being a built-in speaker and FM radio antenna for enjoying music with friends.

Set the mood with the right music

The W760 helps select the right music for the occasion. Store up to 950 tracks on your phone, and use SensMe(TM) to pick the music and tracks that match your mood in an instant. Navigate through a playlist with Shake Control - shuffle and skip through tracks, or adjust the volume, with just a shake of the phone.

The TrackID(TM) functionality allows you to identify any song you are listening to on the FM Radio or at a club. And with TrackID(TM) Charts, you can also review the most searched tracks in your country or anywhere in the world.

The intuitive Media User Interface rotates depending on how you're holding the phone, so you can see everything you need at a glance. Auto rotate works for photos, videos and games too. Just twist the phone to change the view.

Get a piece of the gaming action

With the W760, gaming is more fun than ever. The phone allows you to play in landscape mode, with sound from stereo speakers and use of dedicated gaming buttons like a gaming console. It is preloaded with the latest games, including Need for Speed(TM) ProStreet - where high speed and utter adrenaline collide. The W760 is built for fast-paced action with a large 2.2" screen for great gameplay and Motion Sensor Gaming that allows you to play top games on your phone in 3D quality, using the motion of the phone to control the game.

Capture the moment

A quality 3.2 megapixel camera is built in to the phone. Just slide open the phone, press the camera button and capture the moment! Pictures can be stored on the 1GB Memory Stick or transferred to a PC using Media Manager.

The W760 is a UMTS/HSDPA 850/19002100 and GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 phone that will be available in selected markets from Q2 2008.

The Active Speaker MAS-100 will be available in selected markets from Q2 2008.

Sony Ericsson W350:

Sony Ericsson today announced the launch of the W350, a Walkman phone that offers the perfect blend of style and function. Featuring for the first time from Sony Ericsson a flip phone that allows you to control your music at your fingertips, it offers a winning combination of ease of use, style and convenience. This latest addition to the Walkman phone family can be used with the new Bluetooth(TM) Headset HBH-DS205, also announced today, for the ultimate hands-free music experience.

At just 10 mm thin, it is sleek enough to fit comfortably with no bulges into your pocket or purse. Its unique flip covers the keypad for a minimalist look. Available in trendy colours including Electric Black with orange accents, the phone is a classy yet modern statement that is never out of place whether at a music gig or a football match.

The W350's Walkman player can easily be accessed and operated even without opening its flip cover. With Walkman on Top, key MP3 functions including Play, Pause and Scroll are outside the phone's flip cover so you can use it just like you would a standalone MP3 player.

The W350 makes it straightforward to transfer music onto your phone. Whether your favourite tracks are on a CD or on your computer, all you need to do with the phone's intuitive Media Manager software is drag your tracks from your computer onto your phone via a USB cable. You can store up to 470 tracks or 40 entire albums and, once your music is onto your phone, it's also easy to navigate around it with the Walkman player.

You're at the bar, and a song plays that you used to love... but you just can't place it! Sounds familiar? We've all experienced this, and thanks to TrackIDTM, it need never happen again. Just record a few seconds of the song into the phone's microphone (or tag it from the built-in radio) and use TrackIDTM to identify it. The phone provides you with the name of the song, the artist, and even the album so that you can download it and enjoy it again and again.

You don't need to hold the phone in your hand to get the best out of the W350. With the Bluetooth(TM) Headset HBH-DS205, you can stream the music on your phone wirelessly to your ears! Your phone can be in your bag and you can still listen to the music, see which song is playing and take calls.

The W350i is an EDGE 900/1800/1900 phone that will be available in selected markets from Q2 2008. The W350a is an EGDE 850/1800/1900 phone for the Americas that will also be available from Q2 2008.

The Bluetooth(TM) Headset HBH-DS205 will come in grey and will be available in selected markets from Q2 2008.
