Sony Ericsson might not have done that well recently, so hopefully its latest Walkman branded phones will help improve things. Starting from the top we have the W902, which is an HSDPA enabled candy bar which relies on an 8GB M2 memory card for music storage as it only has 25MB of built in memory.
The W902 will be available in Volcanic Black, Wine Red or Earth Green and has a 2.2in 320x240 display. It measures 49x110x11.7mm (WxHxD) and weighs 99.8g. It also has a 5 Megapixel camera, a front-mounted camera for video calls, Bluetooth with A2DP support, USB mass storage support, FM radio with RDS and Shake control.
The W595 will be available with or without HSDPA, depending on the model and market and is a slider design. Sony Ericsson is only supplying a 2GB M2 memory card with the W595, but at least it has 40MB of built in memory. It too has a 2.2in 320x240 display, Bluetooth with A2DP, USB mass storage support, FM radio with RDS and Shake control, but it only has a 3.2Megapixel camera.
The W595 has what Sony Ericsson calls a Share jack, which allows two people to listen to the music being played, as long as both persons have their own headphones. Color-wise, the W595 will be available in Active Blue, Cosmopolitan White, Jungle Grey or Lava Black and the handset measures 47x100x14mm (WxHxD) and weighs 104g.
Finally, the W302 is a more basic candy bar model that lacks any kind of 3G support, has a smaller, unspecified display with a resolution of 176x220 pixels and a mere 512MB M2 memory card bundled. It has 20MB of built in memory, a 2Megapixel camera, Bluetooth, USB mass storage support and FM radio with RDS.
The W302 measures 46x100x10.5mm (WxHxD), weighs in at 78g and will be available in Midnight Black or Sparkling White. All three handsets will be available sometime in Q4 this year.
