Sony Ericsson W995 gets priced and dated

With all the fuss surrounding the awesome Sony Ericsson Idou, it's become all too easy to overlook SE's other MWC wonder phone, the W995. Touted ahead

Expansys, those lovers of leaked release dates, have just pegged the blower for a 14 May release date, with a rather hefty £409 price tag coming with it. Obviously that's sans–SIM, but it's still on the pricey side.

So what will you get for all that cold, hard happy paper? Well, more than enough to sate even the most demanding of mobile fanatics. You'll find an 8MP camera, MediaGo software which will transcode any audio, snaps and videos into usable files and a 3.5mm jack for using your own buds. Thanks for listening Sony Ericsson.

Add a 2.6in screen, slide out keypad, Wi–Fi, GPS and HSDPA and you've got a blower ideal for those immune to the touchscreen revolution.

You can see the W995 in all its glory in our dedicated unboxing blog now.
