Sony Ericsson 2006

Intro K790 W300 K510 & K310 Accessories Comments  14

Sony Ericsson's big product launch for 2006. Hands-on in NYC with the new K790, W300, and more.

Sony Ericsson is starting off 2006 with a bang. The company started off in January with the W810, an upgraded version of its popular W800 Walkman phone, for North America. Then a month later it followed up with the M600 messaging phone. Little more than a week later, the company revealed the W950 3G Walkman phone.

In 2005 Sony Ericsson scored several smash hits with its stylish and powerful Walkman phones. This success has given the company the momentum (and cash) it needs to surge forward and expand it lineup in a big way. That's why - just two months into the year - the company today held its fourth major product launch of 2006, and is already talking about more phones to come.

Of the six phones announced globally today, four are headed for U.S. shores.

am i wrong in assuming the Z530 will still have some sort of music player?

if the W300 and the Z530 are of different cost (the w300 being more expensive) and the Z530 still has some type of media player, i'm taking the Z530, walkman branding is not THAT important to me.

Great job, Rich...

...really nice pictures and great coverage. I'm a big fan of the W and Z series handsets as their physical design is first rate. Not surprising to hear people were put out by SE's change of connector...I'd imagine any company sees this as a chance to both boost income and implement new tech.
I agree! Great article Rich. IM very excited for the K790a. That will replace my cruddy HP 3.2 megapixel camera! The W300 looks like a great alternative to the w600 here minus the camera. PPL have been asking me for a cheaper walkman phone.
Thanks! 🙂

So does this mean that the W810 phone is not coming to the US? I saw that it was suppose to come out 1st qtr this year. I have been postponing getting a new phone in anticipation of the w810. And I really dont like the ooks of the 7 whatever phone is.

😕 Why would you think that? No, the W810 is definitely still coming to the US.
