Sony Ericsson has finally released photographs of the rumored new model of the Walkman(R) phone and I must admit, I'm very impressed. The W880 Walkman(R) phone combines the good looks of the hottest thin phones of the day (think Blackberry Pearl and RAZOR) with updated music-centered features of the old-school Walkman.
The W880 will launch within the first half of 2007 when more details will be provided. Overall, it looks like 2007 will be the year of the music phone. Every manufacturer is scramming to make the ultimate MP3 player/phone combo before the competition. I suspect the best of the best will come from a company like Sony, which already has experience with music players.
