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

- 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

The features of S312 include:
- Dual band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (900/1800 MHz)
