If you thought the BenQ-Siemens EF51 was the phone for music lovers, think again – the Sony Ericsson W950i Walkman phone, with an impressive 4GB of storage, looks to be a far better bet when it comes to the phone/music player hybrid.
The W950i has a QVGA TFT 2.6 inch display with touchscreen navigation. Its 4GB drive can store up to 4,000 songs and supports MP3, AAC, AAC+, E-AAC+, WAV and m4a formats, which are transferred from your PC via Sony’s Disc2Phone software. It also features an FM radio with RDS, graphic equaliser and Mega Bass. Music playback is around 8 hours from a full charge.
The UMTS-enabled phone is also packed with mobile multimedia applications, including web browsing with the Opera 8, push email, video playback and 3D gaming.
The stylish W950i is finished in "Mystic Purple" and should be available in Europe in the third quarter of 2006.
