Sony Ericsson has doubled up on its news today, matching its latest Walkman phone with a wireless sound system. The W705 Walkman phone offers Wi-Fi access for downloading songs and streaming video, as well as Bluetooth access to the MBS-900 Wireless Home Audio System.
The W705 offers "Clear Bass, Clear Stereo and premium headphones" to deliver a sound with "crystal clear clarity" that is "dynamic, rich and natural".
The handset obviously includes popular Walkman features such as the music recognition application TrackID, SensMe mood-matching system and Shake control to change tracks with the flick of your hand.
Also available on the W705 is PlayNow arena, which provides a full range of mobile entertainment – unique themes and wallpapers, ring tones, a wealth of free content and DRM-free music tracks and TrackID charts from around the world.
"The W705’s exclusive metal finish combines with a large screen in an elegant and compact slider for a professional feel," said Sony Ericsson.
"Use the 3.2-megapixel camera to snap photos of friends and upload them using Wi-Fi to your social networking site for all to see.
It comes with a 4GB memory card to store up to 3900 eAAC+ encoded songs.
Meanwhile, the MBS-900 connects wirelessly to your mobile phone through Bluetooth allowing you to spin your tunes through the dual speaker and sub-woofer system.
Users can even listen to the built-in radio and make a phone call at the same time, or if the phone rings the speakers will cleverly automatically mute.
