Sony Drops High-End Phones and Watches

Sony W910iSony W960i
Well, Sony sure had a whole lot of new products up its sleeve. The most exciting are the two new high-end additions to its Walkman phone line, the W910 and W960.

The W910 is a nice looking slider with a high-speed 3G HSDPA data connection (so look for it on AT&T). The phone only packs 40-megabytes of internal storage, but comes packed with a one-gigabyte micro Memory Stick for storing your tunes. And speaking of which, controlling your music may be the most interesting thing about this phone, since it contains a motion-sensor similar to the one found on the Wii. This means you just flick your wrist to skip a song or shake it up to shuffle. The motion-sensing control can apparently even be used to play games. The media player also has a SensMe feature that organizes play-lists, not by artist or album, but by mood and tempo. The W910 is due out by the end of the year.

The W960 is a full-fledged smart phone. It comes packed with the UIQ variety of the Symbian OS, a touch screen, 3G if you're in Europe, Wi-Fi, and an massive eight-gigabytes of internal storage for carrying around a Nano's worth of music and videos. The 960 even has a 3.2-megapixel camera, which should be good enough to replace a dedicated digicam for the casual snapper. The 960 is cool, but unfortunately lacks any 3G, high-speed capability for the U.S., so unless it's network specs change, it'll probably be a mostly European affair.

Sony also introduced four other phones, the Z320, K850, K530 and Z250, as well as three Bluetooth-enabled watches for caller ID and text message alerts.
