AT&T will roll out another Sony Ericsson phone besides the Cyber-Shot C905 mentioned earlier today, and that is the Sony Ericsson W518a Walkman. The W518a is not quite as advanced as the C905a, with its 3.2-megapixel camera, but it does promise a better music experience. It has a similar design to the W980.

Like previous Walkman phones, the W518a has a shake control that lets you change tracks and the volume with a quick wrist shake. There's also a gesture control for rejecting incoming calls and setting the alarm to snooze. It also promises social-networking capability with Facebook connectivity, letting you view your friends' updates right on the home screen. Of course, you also get access to AT&T Mobile Music where you can purchase and download tracks from Napster and eMusic.

The Sony Ericsson W518a Walkman will be available July 19 for $49.99 with a two-year service agreement.
