Sony Ericsson W660: Slim 3G Walkman phone

Sony Ericsson's fourteenth Walkman phone comes with 3G connectivity, stereo Bluetooth and a 2-megapixel camera

Last month Sony Ericsson announced an impressive nine new handsets and yet one month later it still has another handset to add to the list, the W660. It's a candybar Walkman phone that looks like a combination between the company's W810i and K800i.

Measuring a slim 14.5mm thick, this glossy, music-playing handset features 3G connectivity, video-calling capabilities and a 2-megapixel camera on the back. Inside there's the Walkman Player 2.0 software, which displays album art, and an FM radio if you get bored of your MP3s.

You can store all your music and pictures on an expandable Memory Stick Micro (M2) and you get a 512MB card included in the box. There's the option to listen to your music using your own headphones via the 3.5mm adaptor or wirelessly using stereo Bluetooth (A2DP).

It looks like the keypad is very similar to the one on the K800i, which means dialling and texting should be straightforward, but the navigation key looks like it could be awkward to use. Of course, we'll reserve our final judgment until we get one in and have a play with it. -AL
