When we first got our hands on the Sony Ericsson W880i, we thought, "Great phone, shame about the keypad" -- which is why we're delighted to see its successor, the Sony Ericsson W890i Walkman phone. Wave goodbye to your metacarpal worries, Walkman fans!
Similarly thin, the W890i is still a pocket-friendly little handset, and yet it somehow squeezes in a larger keypad -- and its fair share of features. There's a 3.2-megapixel camera, HSDPA (3.5G) for fast access to the Internet and, of course, the Walkman player.
You can listen to music by simply pressing the dedicated Walkman key. Connect a pair of headphones via the provided 3.5mm wired adaptor, or wirelessly using a pair of Stereo Bluetooth headphones. There's an FM radio too.
The W890i can store up to 4GB of music on a Memory Stick Micro card, which is about 1,000 tracks (depending on the bit rate) -- more than enough for your daily commute. It's currently available from several networks for free on a monthly contract. Expect a full review soon. -Andrew Lim
