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:
