Sony Ericsson W200 (W200i)

 Sony Ericsson W200 Expected Q2 2007
8th January 2007

The Sony Ericsson W200 is a very low cost "Walkman" branded handset that concentrates on music playback rather than other features.

There's no exact equivalent to the W200i in the non-Walkman range, in terms of hardware specification it's somewhere between the K310 and K510 devices. It has a 128x160 pixel display, 0.3 megapixel (VGA resolution) camera and the Sony Ericsson W200 doesn't come with Bluetooth. On the other hand, it does have expandable memory using Memory Stick Micro cards - with 128Mb in the box and with a maximum capacity of 1Gb (plus 27Mb of internal memory), and there's also an FM radio.

 Sony Ericsson W200i Of course, as a Walkman phone the Sony Ericsson W200 comes with Sony's Disc2Phone software and a range of media playback enhancements. Because of the W200's somewhat limited feature set, the phone's weight is only 85 grams. The battery life is not known, but it should be around 7 hours standby time.

It's a smart looking phone with typical Sony Ericsson "Walkman" styling. At first glance you'd have trouble telling it apart from more expensive devices in the range. And there does seem to be a market for this type of device with high-end music capabilities combined with a low cost feature set.

There will be three versions of the Sony Ericsson W200 on the market - the W200a is a tri-band GSM 850/1800/1900 device for North America, the W200c and the W200i are tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 units for China and the rest of the world respectively. There are two colour schemes: "Rhythm Black" and "Pulse White". Sony Ericsson say that the W200 should be available from Q2 2007.
