Up to 700 albums - around 8000 songs - can be stored on the 8GB memory of the W960 Walkman phone. Managing tracks is easy and it can transfer up to 1GB of data, including music tracks, from your PC to the phone in less than three minutes. With two stylish headsets supplied in the box (one of these the new Stereo Bluetooth Headset HBH-DS220) and a music listening time of up to 27 hours, you’re free to dance much more than the night away. Album arts, TV shows and games. You can navigate the Sony Ericsson W960 and browse media files with the touch of a finger (or stylus). Just press the touch controls to find your way to whatever type of entertainment you need.

Sony Ericsson W960 - Digital camera
The 2.6” touch-sensitive display is great for Web browsing. Hook up to the Web using the 3G network or a Wi-Fi access point. Visit your favourite pages, buy music online, and download new programmes to make the Sony Ericsson W960 truly yours. To catch the fun, the W960 Walkman phone boasts a 3.2 megapixel camera within its 16mm frame. Auto focus makes your photos sharper, and with picture messaging or email you can share them instantly. Another way to spread the word - or photos - is to post them on your own blog site. As with the W910 Walkman phone, you can organize all of your content for the W960 using Media Manager PRO, a PC programme for optimizing music, photos and videos to be used on your phone.

Sony Ericsson W960i cell phone - TrackID music recognition
As with earlier Walkman phones, the W960i incorporates TrackID music recognition software. This lets you record a clip of a song on your phone and find out instantly the name of the artist, track and album. Handy for those moments when you hear a song you like, but do not know who sings it. On the Sony Ericsson W960 (and W910) this feature has been taken to the next level. You can now receive detailed information about the song identified - the background of the artists and the album. New ways to search have been added in, other than just by capturing an audio clip. If you know a bands name and not much else, for example, you can text search to find out more. Search by artist, title, album or lyrics.

Sony Ericsson W960i phone - Bluetooth handsfree
The Sony Ericsson W960i Walkman phone really is the centrepiece of your music listening life, which is why both a stereo portable handsfree and a Stereo Bluetooth headset for music streaming are included with the phone. When you want more, the new Street-style Portable Handsfree HPM-83 adds urban style to the W960. Its flexible neckband gives a secure fit and wraps behind the head, so as not to get in the way if you’re running or at the gym. If you want to share your music library with friends, the Bluetooth Music Receiver MBR-100 plugs into your home stereo and lets you stream tracks directly from the phone to your stereo’s speakers.

Sony Ericsson W960i mobile phone - MP3 player
Nicklas Sivander, Product Manager for the W960i Walkman phone, Sony Ericsson, sums it up: “You couldn’t ask for a better music mix of high performance media player and intuitive phone. The touchscreen is complemented by a regular keyboard and the phone itself is amplified by the Media Manager programme and the many music accessories. The days of taking an MP3 player, a camera and a phone with you when you leave the house are definitely over.” The Sony Ericsson W960 Walkman is UMTS 2100-GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 and will be available in Vinyl Black from Q4 2007.
