sony-ericsson-w995-walkman-phone-1

Walkman meets camera (a whopping 8.1 meg, mind you) meets motion gaming meets Net browsing. And yeah, it’s a phone too! Whatever Music Express junkies want, they will get it (and more) from the Sony Ericsson W995.


You’ll be left wondering: Is it a Cybershot? Is it a Walkman? Is it a phone? You decide but this multitasker manages to tread the fine line between being serious and being playful. And if phones are all about music, movies (way-cool video quality plus a stand to rest the phone on) and photos (picture quality is better than most phones but not astounding considering the 8.1 meg), then this new phone is ohmiGod!


Price: Rs 26,786
What’s hot:
Superb music features and sound quality; much improved interface; 3.5 mm headphone jack; GPS
What’s not:
Doesn’t measure up to similarly-equipped smartphones; camera clarity may disappoint; battery life isn’t enough for such a feature-laden phone
