I always thought the Sony Ericsson W910 is a special handset. As a matter of fact, I’ve called it the best non-smart musicphone for couple of times.
So I was not that surprised to learn that GSMA honored it with the Best Handset 2008 award. We’re not sure whether judges like the shake control, auto-rotate feature, 3D Java games or HSDPA — or everything that combined — it’s just the fact that the Swedish-Japanese handset maker has one of the best on-the-go entertainment devices in its portfolio. Yeah, we also suggest the W910 for those not looking to buy a smartphone, but an easy to use yet powerful music phone… Full release follows after the jump.
PRESS RELEASE – Sony Ericsson is delighted to announce that its W910 Walkman phone has been awarded Best Handset at the GSM Association’s 13th Global Mobile Awards 2008.
Launched last year, the W910 Walkman phone is designed for entertainment; whether music, 3D games, video, or high-speed Web access. It’s also geared to let consumers choose their music just the way they want it. Applications such as Shake control enable them to flick the phone to control games or skip and shuffle between music tracks while SenseMeTM lets them discover music to match their mood and tempo. With its 1GB Memory Stick Micro provided in box, the W910 Walkman phone can hold over 900 songs* with room for plenty more thanks to its expandable memory.
“We are very proud to receive such a prestigious award for what has proved to be a very popular product,” says Dick Komiyama, Sony Ericsson President. “The W910 Walkman makes it quicker and easier to transfer or download music. It’s also about thinking beyond music, to games, videos and the Web.”
Since the launch of the W800 Walkman phone in August 2005, more than 57 million Walkman phones have been sold worldwide. The Walkman phone range has seen rapid expansion, most recently with the launch of the W980 Walkman phone at this year’s Mobile World Congress. This latest Walkman phone promises to get the most out of consumers’ music with superior clear audio sound, storage for 8,000 songs, and Walkman on Top experience that allows users to control all of their music from the outside of their phone.
