New Sony Ericsson "a fantastic music phone"

The W995 was recently added to the range

The Sony Ericsson W995 has impressed one reviewer who notes the device is a great precursor to what the manufacturer has in store for the future.

According to T3's Rhiain Morgan, it is looking increasingly likely that the company is about to fuse together its Cyber-shot line of handsets with its Walkman range of music-focussed models.

He explains this could make the W995 the last of its kind - especially with new phones like the Sony Ericsson Satio on the horizon - but this would mean the series would definitely go out with a bang.

"The W995 is certainly a bona-fide Walkman phone with a whole load of extra junk in the trunk. Strip past the somewhat superfluous 8.1-megapixel camera and in its essence this is a fantastic music phone," Mr Morgan says.

Announced earlier this year, the Satio carries a 12.1-megapixiel camera and integrated media player, but is not expected to hit stores until November - which could make the W995 an option for those currently recycling mobile phones.
