Sony Ericsson W705 Walkman: Socket to me

Sony Ericsson has just announced its final phone of the year--the W705 Walkman. It's an aluminum-crafted slider with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera and LED flash.

In terms of form factor, it's got the typical Sony Ericsson haven't-we-seen-this-a-dozen-times-before look and feel, combined with the usual 2008 run-of-the-mill specs: a 240x320-pixel screen, a 4GB Memory Stick Micro M2 card to complement a meager internal memory, a fixed-focus camera lens, an LED flash, and stereo Bluetooth.

But it's sure as hell a pretty melon farmer, and we applaud Sony Ericsson for injecting Wi-Fi and GPS into the mix, not to mention the pre-loading of Google Maps. Apart from the ever-present Sony Ericsson proprietary headset socket, we think this could be a cracking handset.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
