First Look: Sony Ericsson W980

1:01 /

The Sony Ericsson W980 is a new walkman phone that's not yet available with a carrier but can be purchased unlocked.

1 [ Music ]^M00:00:02 >> Hi. I'm Kent German, Senior Editor here at CNET.com. Today we're taking a first look at the Sony Ericsson W980. This is a new Walkman phone, you can't get it with a carrier but you can get it unlocked. Here on the outside we have an external display you can access the music player and you can use the screen as your guide without opening the phone. On the left spine this control actually can rotate the player between radio, between music mode and between standard mode just by pressing that control. It will change the function of these keys right here. Once you open up the phone you'll see there's another design touchup here. This is actually clear, this top of the phone. There is the 3.2-megapixel camera lens right here. No flash or self-portrait mirror. Inside, the phone has the Walkman player that has the shake control so when you play music you press down the Walkman button and you flick your wrist like that, will shuffle the songs for you, so that's just an interesting touch. Also blue tooth, speaker phone, organizer function s, USB connectivity. So most everything you would expect from a Walkman phone. I'm Kent German and this is the Sony Ericsson W980. ^M00:00:57[ Music ]
