Sony Ericsson W980 Win the

Sony Ericsson W980 has been recently awarded by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) as the “European music phone”.

The W980 clamshell has been available on the European market since July. It seems to be the best Walkman phone ever released by Sony Ericsson.

The Walkman phone packs 8GB of internal memory, which allows users to store all their favorite music. And it features high-end sound quality, Walkman Player with shake control, TrackID, FM radio with RDS, FM transmitter, dedicated external music controls, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, NetFront browser, IM, email and a 3 Megapixel camera.

The EISA description for the Sony Ericsson W980 says, “Who could resist this piano-black Walkman-series phone? It’s a quad-band handset loaded with 8 GB of internal memory, a 3.2 Megapixel camera, an FM tuner, Bluetooth stereo, and a music player that operates even with the phone flip-lid closed. Opened out, the handset reveals its 2.2-inch QVGA display with 262k colors and stunning picture quality. One incredibly valuable innovation is the built-in FM radio transmitter. This broadcasts phone-based music playback to a standard car radio, even transferring artist and track details via RDS. The music player handles a wide variety of audio file formats, and automatically sorts tracks according to a range of criteria. Finally, two excellent features are the SenseMe and Shake control. These group tracks by mood, enabling track changes and entire playlist shuffling with just a simple flick of the hand”.
