    W380 Walkman(R) Phone Set to Delight Music Lovers on the Go

    RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sony Ericsson today unveiled the latest addition to its Walkman® phone portfolio, along with new accessories. The W380 Walkman® phone is a stylish new offering packed with features sure to set music lovers’ pulses racing.
    For the music fan on the move, the W380 Walkman® phone combines a unique clamshell design with all the music credibility users expect from Sony Ericsson’s Walkman® phones. The phone packs in innovative features, including Gesture Control, that allow users to mute calls with a wave of their hand. There is also an external display that comes to life only when you need it, to show the name of a music track or to let you know who is calling.

    “With the W380, we address the needs of young, fashion-conscious music lovers,” said Ben Padley, Head of Music Marketing at Sony Ericsson. “The W380 combines Sony Ericsson’s undeniable expertise in mobile communications and mobile music to stunning effect.”

    Sony Ericsson W380 Walkman® phone

    Walkman® controls on top – see what’s playing and manage your music without even opening the phone
    Gesture Control – mute calls or silence the alarm with a wave of your hand
    TrackID™ – record a clip from the radio and identify the song, singer and album instantly.
    Hear it, Name it, Play it, Get it

    The W380 Walkman® phone comes complete with Media Manager PC software that lets you easily transfer your music, photos and videos between your computer and phone. Simply point, click and drag your music files from your computer to your phone – the software automatically converts your music to the right format.

    Store hours of your favorite music (up to 271 songs*) on the W380’s 512 MB Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) or tune in to your favorite FM radio station.

    Hear a song on the radio you don’t recognize but really like? Use the W380’s TrackID™ feature to tag a clip from the phone’s radio (or any external source) and find out instantly who sings it, what it’s called and which album it’s from. The TrackID™ functionality is one of the phone’s most popular features. Latest figures show that every second, someone, somewhere, is using TrackID™ to identify a song they love.

    Take it to the top

    The W380 Walkman® phone brings your music to the surface of the phone, allowing you to control what you’re listening to without needing to open the phone. Skip forward or backwards between tracks or pause the music effortlessly. One-touch buttons on the top of the phone light up when the Walkman® player is switched on and a hidden display comes to life, providing track information at a glance.

    When not in use, the W380 Walkman® phone looks discreet and laid-back from the outside. But as soon as you receive a call or play music, it comes alive. Choose different light effects for different callers, and see your music ‘dance’ when the phone’s lights match the beat of your favorite song.

    Keep your hands off!

    Mute your phone with a wave of your hand. Or snooze the alarm if you’re lying in bed. The W380’s Gesture Control feature allows true ‘handsfree’ handling of your calls for the first time – show it off to your friends!

    The W380 is a GSM/EDGE/GPRS 850/1800/1900 clamshell phone and will be available in Q1 2008.

    You can also make the most of the W380’s Bluetooth™ technology with the compact new Bluetooth™ Headset HBH-PV703.

    The powerful HBH-PV703 offers up to a remarkable 10 hours talk time and up to 350 hours standby time.

    The HBH-PV703 automatically connects via Bluetooth™ to select phones using Sony Ericsson's Auto Pairing feature. All you need to do after charging it is activate Bluetooth™ in your phone. No need to try and recall pin codes – and with Bluetooth™ 2.0 + EDR – no compromise on security.
