Sony Ericsson W890i (probably) surfaces on Polish Auction site

Some new, unannounced phones tend to appear in the most unlikely places.

While the dummy phone models turning up on E-Bay is nothing to write home about (we’ve had that with Nokia E65 last winter and with Nokia 8900 just last week), a working, unannounced Sony Ericsson Walkman prototype on a Polish auction site – is something new.


The phone, which looks like a successor of SE W880i and would probably become Sony Ericsson W890i Walkman, has been put on an auction this Saturday.

The listed specs for SE W890i include:

  • GPRS, UMTS and Bluetooth connectivity
  • 3.2 megapixel main camera
  • front camera for video calls
  • FM Radio
  • menu layout like on SE k850i
  • thickness – 12 mm
  • 1 GB Memory Stick Micro M2 included

The live pictures for Sony Ericsson W890i look real enough and it does not look like a hoax.

Currently the highest bid for W890i Walkman is 530 Zloty (~140 EUR), which looks kinda low for a working next gen Walkman phone. But the auction is set to run for 5 more days, so the price is likely to go up.
