Yesterday in London, Sony Ericsson announced they would be entering the portable music/phone hybrid market with the introduction of the W800.

The W800 is the first ever Walkman-branded mobile phone and offers users similar abilities to Apple's iPod, as well as normal mobile phone capabilities. According to Sony,

The W800 is supplied with quality stereo headphones and it is compatible with the proven, industry standard MP3 and AAC music file formats. Storage capacity is also plentiful as the supplied 0,5GB Memory Stick Duo gives capacity for around 150 music tracks, or 10-12 full length CDs from the user's existing CD collection. And loading music into the player is a breeze thanks to the supplied Disk2Phone software, which enables quick, convenient transfer of music CD's onto the phone via a PC.

"We looked carefully at what people want from a mobile digital music player and have designed a product that fits the bill," says Rikko Sakaguchi, Senior Vice President, Product and Application Planning of Sony Ericsson. "The W800 has great sound quality, is easy to use, has superb battery life and can store a large amount of music. It's an attractive, desirable device that combines high quality phone, camera, music and games player."

The W800 also features a 2-megapixel camera complete with autofocus, an active lens guard, as well as a picture light. Expect to see the W800 on shelves by the third quarter of 2005.
