XE Brings First SE Walkman Phone to the Pay-As-You-Go Market

XE Mobile is showcasing the first Sony Ericsson Walkman phone for the pay-as-you-go market to wireless technology buyers descending to Las Vegas this week for the start of the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show. This announcement comes on the heels of launching new handsets from the industry's leading manufacturers, including Nokia and Motorola, and expanding distribution into music retailers, supercenter stores and the office product marketplace.

The W300 Walkman phone offered by XE Mobile will be priced at $99.99 offering the same great Walkman music quality experience as high-end models, in a compact and eye catching, clamshell design. The handset, which supports both MP3 and AAC music files, provides a great sound experience with up to 30 hours of music listening. The experience for XE members is enhanced by direct music keys, shuffle function, as well as a built-in FM radio with RDS and flight mode. Sony Ericsson's Disc2 phone software supplied with the handset allows XE members to easily transfer their favorite CDs to their mobile phone and enjoy them anywhere, anytime without missing a call.

The W300 Walkman phone offered by XE Mobile is loaded with features including a removable 256MB Memory Stick Micro (M2) expandable to 1GB, as well as a stereo headset, USB cable and music management software. Media player information and caller ID details can be accessed from the front of the clamshell, without opening the phone. In addition to the great music features, the handset has an integrated camera with 4x digital zoom for XE members to take and view photos or record videos and Bluetooth technology, ideal for sharing data with other Bluetooth-enabled devices.
