"You can even control the music by simply moving the handset around, thanks to shake control."

Other features of the Sony Ericsson W715 include Wi-Fi for web-browsing, GPS and an onboard YouTube app. The handset comes with a 3-megapixel camera which shoots both still images and video.

Sony Ericsson W715 review

 

We review the Sony Ericsson W715 Walkman sliderphone, a Wi-Fi-equipped music mobile with A-GPS satellite location technology inside

Stylish brushed aluminium design ; A-GPS satellite location technology ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; HSPA 3G high speed downloads and uploads ; Walkman music player ; 4GB Memory Stick Micro card supplied ; Decent earphones in-box ; User-friendly interface ;...

Average quality 3.2-megapixel camera ; Unimpressive video capture ; No smartphone OS ; No 3.5mm headphone socket on casing ; Available on Vodafone only in the UK

Sony Ericsson's W715 Walkman phone is exclusive to Vodafone and includes GPS functionality

Design, well-implemented controls and keypad, smooth slider, HSDPA-capable, Wi-Fi, 4GB M2 card included, aGPS

Slider wiggles slightly when pressed, back cover creaks, incoming audio could be louder, Wayfinder Navigation is expensive

Sony Ericsson W715 and C510 preview: First look

 

Sony Ericsson announced several new phones yesterday and we managed to snatch the Sony Ericsson C510 Cyber-shot and Sony Ericsson W715 Walkman for quick and dirty hands-on session...

Wi-Fi (with DLNA), GPS receiver, a 3 megapixel snapper with geotagging and an accelerometer that allows for auto screen rotation and motion gaming are its main selling points
