From what I read, Sony Ericsson is merging the W line(Walkman) and the C line(Cybersgot) in their upcoming phones and they are abandoning the labels Cybershot and Walkman.
This is, supposedly, the last Walkman phone to be had( SE w995):
Quite typical to SE’s devices, the phone is missing some important features to pass as an entertainment device. No Xvid is a big one. We’ll have to wait for the next new release to fill the gaps… I guess.
The phone can be a whole bunch of stuff, but it’s not a smartphone, AFAIK. But with things such as video streaming, speedy web browsing, Youtube, GPS, loud external stereo speakers, 8 megapixels camera, etc, etc, it might as well be a smart phone.
Anyways, last chance to get a Walkman phone it is. The next big thing Sony Ericsson is coming up with is the Idou:
Touch screen, a whole lot of other stuff and a 12 megapixels camera. That’s right, 12 megapixels on a damn phone. The phone is a merge between the top Cybershot and the top Walkman phone, and it marks the end of the W and C line.
I owned a touch screen for a brief time, and I ended up hating it. I’m bummed out that all newer phones will be touch screen phones. I got the w995 and I plan to ride it out to the bitter end. Good things just don’t last.
