The Sony Ericsson W760i is the first Walkman phone to offer integrated GPS and support Google Maps. It’s a great entertainment package that also includes a neat little GPS fitness application called Tracker. Record and analyse time, distance and speed every time you hit the running track or go for a walk. But if fitness isn’t your thing the W760i will keep you entertained too.
With all the usual Walkman features it has plenty to offer including shake control, TrackID and SenseMe. The Sony Ericsson W760i has stereo speakers, stereo bluetooth, an FM radio with RDS and the latest Sony Ericsson Media Center and Walkman 3.0 player. Music-wise the W760i is definitely among the best.
With HSDPA you can browse the web and download music tracks to your phone while on the move. You can also stream YouTube videos direct to the phone. The Sony Ericsson W760i has a built-in accelerometer that enables screen auto rotation. Just turn the screen on its side when viewing photos or videos and the display will automatically rotate to show a widescreen aspect.
The 3 megapixel camera is standard with a basic interface and no autofocus, which is fine as the Sony Ericsson W760i is more a music and media phone than it is a cameraphone. Nevertheless the camera does a good job and with GPS your photos can be geo-tagged, which means their exact location is saved along with the date and time. The W760i photo gallery is particularly good with some nice features such as the ability to view photos by timeline.
I should also mention the built-in motion sensor, which takes gaming on the W760i to another level. Simply move the phone to play the built-in 3D games – Need for Speed Pro Street and Rollercoaster Rush 3D. Sony Ericsson excel in these neat little features which help provide longevity in their mobile phones.
The Sony Ericsson W760i should not be underestimated or ignored. It’s a feature packed phone that will keep you entertained for a very long time.
