The gloves are well and truly off in the battle for mobile music supremacy this Christmas, with Apple’s iPhone squaring off against Nokia’s N81 in the 8GB handset wars. Now Sony Ericsson has reminded us that its own contender, the Walkman W960, will go on sale this month.
We reported on the W960 earlier this year: besides that 8GB of memory, it’s got 3G and Wi-Fi, a 2.6-inch touchscreen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and an impressive 27 hours battery life when listening to music. Plus Sony Ericsson’s suite of music features, obviously.
I think it could give the iPhone a run for its money, especially if the UK operators sell the W960 at a bargain price to pay-monthly customers. Sony Ericsson has also announced plans to sell a deskstand accessory for it, the MDS-65, which will go on sale around the same time as the W960.
