Sony Ericsson W595

 Sony Ericsson W595 Discontinued8
22nd July 2008

The Sony Ericsson W595 is a Walkman series 3.5G slider phone with a 3.2 megapixel digital camera, stereo Bluetooth and an FM radio.

As you might guess from the 500 series model number, the W595 is a midrange phone which makes the appearance of HSDPA high-speed 3.5G data a welcome addition. On the other hand, this is possibly one of the most basic 3.2 megapixel cameras that we have seen for a long time - the Sony Ericsson W595 lacks autofocus or a flash, but it does support multishot photos and picture blogging.

In line with the new W902, the W595's media player supports shake control, Sony Ericsson's "SenseMe" tempo and mood based playlists and track identification. There is also a "share jack" which allows two people to listen to music at the same time.

It's not a bad looking device, and the 2.2" QVGA display should be suitable for most users. Of course, the W595 supports Memory Stick Micro cards (up to 2GB) which will be essential to use it as a music player.

 Sony Ericsson W595 Underneath, this is a quad band GSM phone with UMTS 2100 and HSDPA high-speed data. There is also a W595a version for the Americas and a W595c version for China without UMTS/HSDPA support.

The W595 weighs 104 grams and measures 100 x 47 x 14mm. Talktime on 3G is 4.5 hours, on GSM it is 9 hours. Standby time is 15 to 16 days.

Sony Ericsson say that the W595 will be available during Q4 2008 in Active Blue, Cosmopolitan White, Jungle Grey, Ruby Black and Lava Black colour combinations, depending on region.
