Sony Ericsson W580i is a New Walkman with Fitness Applications
Mobile manufacturers are constantly striving to install new and innovative technology into the latest release models. Sony Ericsson have added a unique set of fitness applications to their W580i Walkman phone that will keep users informed, monitored and working out.
In these days of high specification technology, consumer needs and stylish design it is sometimes hard to keep up. Mobile phones are continually being released with new and exciting features tailored to specific lifestyles, the main categories being photography, music and fashion.
Sony Ericsson now offer a substantial range of their Walkman mobile phones that appeal to the music orientated youth who demand the latest music software, the highest audio quality and the maximum amount of storage for their thousands of music tracks.
The latest phone to be launched from the Walkman range is the Sony Ericsson W580i and the manufacturer has installed some very unique applications that will not only please the music lovers but keep them entertained and informed whilst they are working out.
The W580i offers the latest edition of Sony’s Walkman software – Walkman 2.0. This powerful feature allows the user to organise, rename and recognise all of their favourite music tracks, artists and albums much like an iPod, it also allows for easy upload of new music files via PC.
Another interesting addition is an FM Radio featuring RDS and TrackID which allows the user to see the name of the track and artist and other station related information.
The Sony Ericsson W580i is equipped with a 2.0 megapixel camera supporting video record and playback as well as Bluetooth technology for easy wireless transfer of files to compatible devices.
The user can easily take a picture and share it with another compatible mobile phone, this also applies to other files stored within the phone including music tracks, ringtones, games, video clips and downloaded content.
The most common complaint from users of music orientated mobile phones is that there is never enough available memory for storing their music tracks, however the Sony W580i is memory stick compatible allowing for memory expansion up to a very respectful 2GB.
The memory cards can also be removed and shared with compatible devices, so pictures taken with the phone could easily be printed from compatible printers, emails can be easily transfered to compatible laptops and whole music playlists can be exchanged between compatible Walkman phones.
The W580i has a mobile internet browser installed as well as email support so whilst this phone may sound as though it is solely aimed at the music user, it is actually a useful tool for work and to keep up to date with current affairs.
The most interesting features of the W580i are an array of unique fitness applications coupled with GPS technology, these include a pedometer for counting your steps whilst out running and GPS navigation so you can plan a route before leaving and never get lost. When coupled with the music software you can begin to understand who this phones market is, the health conscious, professional music lover who runs a couple of times a week can now leave their other music and fitness devices at home.
With the amount of features and applications packed into the W580i you may be surprised to learn that it just 14mm thick and weighs only 94g, this makes for an ideal pocket companion whilst out and about.
The W580i is available in two colour schemes, the Sony Ericsson W580i Urban Grey and the Sony Ericsson W580i Style White.
