Sony Ericsson launches the MBS-900 Wireless Stereo Speakers and W705 Walkman phone
Sony Ericsson has announced its new W705 Walkman phone, together with the MBS-900 Bluetooth 2.1 speaker. The W705 is a UMTS/HSPA 900/2100 slider with DLNA-compliant Wi-Fi, shake control, a 2.4-inch display, and a 3.2-megapixel camera. It comes complete with a 4GB memory card, supports SE’s Clear Bass and Clear Stereo audio DSP systems, and has Bluetooth to stream music either to headphones or to the MBS-900. It also uses SensMe software that creates playlists based on a user’s mood and has a 3.2 megapixel camera and a 4GB memory card.
The Bluetooth speaker supports 2.1 channels with integrated stereo speakers and subwoofer. Connectivity is either wireless or via a 3.5mm input; we are thinking you will get better quality sound from the latter. The speaker has a monochrome OLED display for track titles and music settings, and has an FM radio. Music is automatically muted when the phone rings. No word yet on any of the devices but expect these products to be launched by the first quarter of 2009.
