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.
