Sony Ericsson's W705: slider

Being part of the Walkman range of course means that the W705 is heavily music-oriented, and so it comes with TrackID and FM radio support. The phone can also handle various music formats, such as MP3 and AAC, if you want to load your own tunes onto it.

Pictures taken with the phone’s 3.2-megapixel camera are stored on Memory Stick Micro cards of up to 4GB – although the phone has a 120MB memory on-board – and can be viewed on the talker’s 2.4in display.

Image geo-tagging is supported, which is handy if you’re a little forgetful, and snaps can be sent directly through to printers that support the PictBridge communication standard.

Web surfing’s possible over both Wi-Fi and Edge, whilst the quad-band GSM/GPRS network support will let you talk to your mates when you’re at home or on holiday.

You’ll be able to steam songs directly to a compatible stereo over Bluetooth. A feature called Shake Control will even let you to select tracks by flicking the phone from side to side.

Talk time averages ten hours, SE claimed, and its standby life lasts for roughly 400 hours. The phone’s available in either “Luxury Silver” or “Passionate Red”.

Sony Ericsson’s W705 will be available early next year, but a price hasn’t been confirmed yet.
