Sony Ericsson announces W205 Walkman and S312 Snapshot phones

Sony Ericsson has just announced the expansion of its entry-level handset line-up, with the addition of W205 and S312 – a Walkman and a Snapshot phone.

Sony Ericsson W205 is a slider and it will be launched as a device that can be “your first Walkman phone”.

It has a set of almost complete features – although its display is kind of small and it doesn’t have EDGE (not to mention 3G).

Anyway, the handset looks good for an entry-level:




Its specs include:

  • Dual band GSM/GPRS connectivity (900/1800 MHz for W205 and 850/1900 MHz for W205a)
  • 1.8 inch TFT display with 128 x 160 pixels and 65K colors
  • Bluetooth
  • Walkman player
  • FM radio with RD
  • TrackID
  • MMS
  • Opera Mini browser
  • 1.3 MP camera with video recording
  • 5MB of internal memory
  • Memory Stick Micro (M2) card support, up to 2GB
  • Music playback time: up to 13.5 hours
  • Talk time: up to 9 hours
  • Standby time: up to 425 hours


Sony Ericsson W205 will be available starting the third quarter of 2009, initially in only one color version: Ambient Black. Its price was not announced, but it should be a low one.

Next, the Sony Ericsson S312 is a tiny candybar that will come as the successor of S302. Previously known as Sony Ericsson Athena, the S312 has two color versions (Dawn Blue and Honey Silver).



The features of S312 include: 

  • Dual band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (900/1800 MHz)
  • 2-inch TFT scratch resistant display with 262K colors and 176 x 220 pixels
  • 2MP camera
  • Dedicated video camera key
  • Illuminated imaging shortcuts
  • MMS
  • Bluetooth
  • Media player
  • Email
  • 15MB of internal memory
  • Memory Stick Micro (M2) card support
  • Talk time: up to 8 hours
  • Standby time: up to 400 hours
  • 100 x 46 x 12.5 mm
  • 80 grams



Sony Ericsson S312 will hit the market earlier than the W205: sometime in the second quarter of 2009. Its price was not yet announced.
