CES 2007: Sony Ericsson launches W200 entry-level Walkman phone

CES 2007, Mobile phones

sonyericsson_w200.jpgSony Ericsson’s latest Walkman phone is the entry-level W200 – a candybar handset with a capacity that can be boosted to store around 2555 full-length tracks.

Available in black or white, Sony Ericsson is pitching it as a first step into “music on your mobile”. It’s actually a very small first step – the initial capacity allows for just 37 tracks, but this can be increased to 1GB via Memory Stick, which increases that to up to 255 tracks.

There’s also an FM radio with 20 presets, alarm (via the built-in speakerphone) colour-matched headset, VGA phone, HTML browser and surprisingly, push email, along with all the usual phone basics.

Don’t expect to see it in stores until at least April this year, when a price will be announced.
