Check out below a very detailed review of the Sony Ericsson W600i Walkman phone by Allen Tsai from Mobiledia.com.
Just as camera phones were the rage in 2004, music phones are the new battleground for manufacturers as evident with the Motorola ROKR, Samsung SCH-A950 and LG CE500. As each company releases their music phones, each hopes to grasp a hold on the fledgling market with the right mix of functionality, style, and accessibility.
Hitting store shelves this month, the W600i is the latest Sony Ericsson device to encapsulate music and mobility, leveraging the heritage of its parent companies to demonstrate their combined vision. Branding the W-series devices as “Walkman Phones,” the W600i delivers an open-standard-based digital music player for the mass market.
Through the packaged Sony CONNECT software, downloaded songs and music copied from CD can be directly transferred to the W600i. Able to handle multiple file formats including MP3 and AAC, the W600i includes Disc2Phone PC software for convenient music transfer.
The Sony Ericsson W600i combines multimedia and functionality with mobility, allowing users to take calls while listening to music, capture high-quality 1.3-megapixel images and video, experience 3D gaming, and access the Internet and email, all while on the move.
