Sony Ericsson unveils Walkman W595, W302 phones

Sony Ericsson not only unveiled the slimtastic W902 today, but it also took the lid off two other Walkman handsets: the W595 and the W302. Both will be available toward the end of this year.

Sony Ericsson's W302 and W595

Sony Ericsson not only unveiled the slimtastic W902 today, but it also took the lid off two other Walkman handsets: the W595 and the W302. Both will be available toward the end of this year.

Like the W902, neither the W302 or the W595 have headphone sockets. Instead, you'll need to use a bundled extension cable to connect your headphones to the proprietary connection. These days, this is just unacceptable in a music phone. Other manufacturers, such as Nokia and Motorola, are seeing the light and now put proper headphone sockets on some of their phones.

Anyway, annoyances aside, the quad-band W595 is a slider handset, featuring a 240x320-pixel resolution screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, integrated stereo speakers, stereo Bluetooth, 40MB of internal memory expandable with Memory Stick Micro M2 cards, and it weighs 104 grams.

The lightest handset in the new Walkman range is the quad-band W302, weighing in at 78 grams. It's got a 176x220-pixel resolution screen, a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and 20MB of internal memory expandable with Memory Stick Micro M2 cards. Sony Ericsson only reckons you'll get 10 hours of music from a full charge, though, which is rubbish.
