W300 Quad Band EDGE clamshell WALKMAN® phone brings music on the move to the mass market


London, 28th Feb 2006 – Sony Ericsson today expanded its growing line-up of Walkman® phones with the W300, a quad band EDGE clamshell which aims to bring the mobile phone Walkman® experience to an even greater market. With the same great Walkman® music quality experience as high-end models, a compact and eye catching design plus integrated camera, the W300 allows new users to enjoy the Sony Ericsson mobile music experience.

With today’s announcement of the W300 Sony Ericsson has now launched a total of seven Walkman® phones, targeted at different customer needs and life-style choices. From high-end UMTS models aimed at users who want to enjoy over-the-air downloads, high-speed email and internet connectivity to models targeting more casual music listeners such as the W600 and W800, Sony Ericsson aims to create a Walkman® mobile phone for everyone, everywhere.

The W300 Walkman® phone, which supports both MP3 and AAC music files, offers a great sound experience with up to 30 hours of music listening. The user experience is enhanced by direct music keys, shuffle function, as well as an in-built FM radio with RDS and flight mode. Disc2 phone software supplied with the phone, allows users to easily transfer their favourite CDs to their mobile phone and enjoy them anywhere, anytime without missing a call.

Featuring expressive colours and a stylish compact design, the W300 is shipped with removable 256MB Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) expandable to 1GB, as well as a stereo headset, USB cable and music management software.

In addition to the great music features, the W300 offers an easy way to take and view great snap-shot pictures or record videos using the integrated camera with 4x digital zoom. The phone’s 262K TFT colour screen makes it perfect for taking fun snap-shot images and enjoying them on the screen, while full MMS support enables these images to be shared with friends and family.

The monochrome 1” sub display on the outside of the clamshell allows users to view media player information or caller display without opening the phone.

The W300 is equipped with EDGE Class 10 technology, to allow quick and easy data transfers and Internet access, as well as Bluetooth™ ideal for sharing data with other Bluetooth-enabled devices.

The Sony Ericsson W300 will be available in Shimmering White and Shadow Black colour variants and starts shipping in Q2 2006.
