Sony Ericsson releases newest walkman phone, the W705

Sony Ericsson unveiled its newest walkman phone, the W705, which is equipped with HSPA and comes with a home audio system.

Users can use WiFi to download songs to the phone or use Bluetooth to stream songs wirelessly to the MBs-900 speaker system that the company unveiled along with the phone. The phone has shake control technology, which allows users to switch volume and tracks with a flick of the wrist. It also uses SensMe software that creates playlists based on a user's mood and has a 3.2 megapixel camera and a 4GB memory card.

Sony Ericsson is releasing a version of the phone for North America, the W705a, that will have access to quad-band GSM and EDGE for calls and data. The phone is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2009, but has not been attached to a carrier and no pricing is available yet.
