Sony Ericsson W910i review

The Walkman phone is now in its third generation – and the W910i is the first showcase its talents with hip-shaking music controls…

Nokia may be gearing up for the mother of all mobile music assaults but when it comes to tunage on the bounce, Sony Ericsson’s Walkman phones still rule. The coming soon W960i looks to be the unofficial mobile music holy grail but until take off its latest audio adventurer, the W910i, is the Walkman phone to covet.

The W910i is the first Walkman to usher in the next generation player, spanking new desktop multimedia software, mood adapting playlist creation and motion sensing music controls. Not forgetting it’s also the first ever Sony Ericsson phone hurtling to HSDPA download speeds.

Slip slide away

Sony Ericsson’s penchant for the slider form is growing after a shop full of candybar’s and the W910i is its finest skater to date. The action is spring loaded while the torso is Rhianna trim, although it does have a tendency to creak.

The famed Walkman player now falls under Sony Ericsson’s new Media banner that gathers your music, photos and videos under one roof. The new look Media menu has graphically pilfered from the Sony PSP and now adds Podcast and Audio Books to its musical sub sections plus a photo tag system to neatly file your snaps. It’s a convenient way to access all your multimedia clobber.
