Wi-Fi Walkman 'builds on the Sony Ericsson brand'
11 May 2009 — 2:00 PM
The decision by Sony Ericsson to incorporate Wi-Fi technology into its range of music-focused handsets was a smart one, according to a new article.
In a piece for Pocket-lint, Richard Knight looks at the manufacturer's latest phone to bear the Walkman brand - the W705 - and states it could be "a phone worthy of your attention".
He notes that the device is the first in the range to be fully-equipped with Wi-fi connectivity and was announced at the European MTV Awards towards the end of last year.
In addition, he suggests Sony Ericsson could not be accused of neglecting the Walkman brand and this can be seen in the technology on offer through the W705.
"For their first Wi-Fi slider handset the W705 is a good inclusion in the arsenal of Sony Ericsson Walkman phones," he explains. "There's a decent enough battery life too, with four hours of talking or 350 hours of standby."
Other models in the Walkman line up include the W302 and W715.
