We were suitably impressed with Sony Ericsson’s rather tasty W300i Walkman phone on its launch in February. T-Mobile has confirmed it’s now coming to the UK – and if you’re a Robbie Williams fan, this limited edition Robbie-fied version will certainly entertain you.
T-Mobile claims this special edition W300i has been "creatively influenced by Robbie Williams himself" – the first time a global artist has been directly involved in the design of a phone. It’s also the first pre-pay Walkman handset to be launched in the UK. It comes pre-loaded with exclusive content, including a ‘live’ video clip, wallpapers, a ringtone, animations and the opening song from his world tour. It also features a Robbie Williams logo embossed on the back cover, plus two additional Robbie skins to personalise your mobile.
The W300i plays both MP3 and AAC music files, with up to 30 hours of listening on a single charge. As a music player, it has direct music keys, shuffle function, as well as an in-built FM radio with RDS. It’s shipped with a removable 256MB Memory Stick Micro (M2) expandable to 1GB, as well as a stereo headset, USB cable and music management software.
In addition to the music side, the phone features EDGE technology, has a 128 x 160 262K color TFT main display with a second 1-inch 101 x 80 display for track info and caller display, a VGA camera with 4x digital zoom, 3D gaming and Bluetooth. Expect it in the stores in June. No price as yet.
