The Sony Ericsson W660i - Walkman Phone Supremo

By: Matt Sharp

Sony Ericsson W660 is mid-level Walkman that bets on the stylish design. It features tri-band GSM and UMTS support, 262k color TFT display, 2 mega pixel camera, FM Radio, Bluetooth with A2DP support and Memory Stick Micro M2 slot for memory.

The Walkman phone's sporty orange trim gets switched out for a classy attempt in gold on Sony Ericsson's newest rendition, the W660. At a svelte 0.57-inches, the UMTS 2100 and GPRS 900/1800/1900 phone really packs in the goods with Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity, FM radio support, a 2 mega pixel camera, web browsing, RSS feeds, and a 512 MB Memory Stick Micro (upgradeable). It has a 2-inch color TFT display and totes random extras like TrackID, a music identification service, and a Picture Blogging function that allows you to send snapshots directly to your personal blog.

To top off the lifestyle angle on this phone, Sony Ericsson has embellished the pants off this one, with the aforementioned gold trim on both glossy color options, Record Black and Rose Red. The Rose Red (geez, what's up with the cranberry hype?) model jazzes it up a bit more with its floral-themed relief pattern on the backside. For those of you who are more concerned with performance, you'll get up to 6 hours of talk time on GSM, up to 2.5 hours with 3G, or a max of 25 hours of music listening.

The W660i is a mid-tier mobile, and there is an optional portable speaker that plugs into the bottom, essentially transforming the music phone into the world's ghetto-est ghetto blaster. Some have even said that it looks almost like a rubber boot on its side with a speaker on the sole. Available in two color combinations -- rose or black, both with gold trim -- the Sony Ericsson W660i Walkman phone is a candy bar with a reasonable set of features.

You get high-speed 3G connectivity, an included 512MB Memory Stick Micro, and an integrated 2-megapixel camera. In fact, there's an optional "camera phone kit" that consists of a 3-inch high tripod. Yes, the camera has a lens cover. For this phone you can snap on MPS-75 speakers to listen your FM radio or Music. Bluetooth enabled Sony Ericsson W660i also have a music identifying "Track ID" which gives you the full details of a song which you supply a piece of it to the device via a microphone or from your FM Radio.

This Sony Ericsson W660i will store 470 full length of music songs on its 512MB memory stick, which is provided, to store more songs, you can store 1,000 songs in a 1GB Memory stick. At 3G speed you can upload images taken by this walkman phone's 2 Mega Pixel camera to your web space or blog. Also you will get RSS feed while you are surfing the websites. The 3 mobile W660 Walkman phone is an UMTS 2100 and operates in GPRS 900/1800/1900.
