Here we look at two music phones storming through the charts: Sony Ericsson W910i and Nokia N81. The Sony Ericsson W910i is a sleek slider. The front fascia of the mobile phone is dominated by a 2.4 inch TFT screen that can produce more than 262k colours across its 240 x 320 pixels. The Walkman logo in iconic orange colour affirms the handset's affiliation to the Walkman family.
Being a Walkman phone, the Sony Ericsson W910i's finesse lies in its music playing skills. The handset is endowed with an upgraded Walkman 3.0 media player with many integrated features that were not found in the earlier version, including the fabulous 'shake control', allowing you to change song by jiggling the phone. TrackID feature of the updated player is a great way to find out more about a song's artist and other relevant information just by sending a part of its recording to the server. Similarly, other features like playlist support, equalizer, MegaBass makes for a unique mobile music experience. The Sony Ericsson W910i's built in memory is supplemented by external memory cards.
