Sony W880 fans rejoice, for today Sony launched the W890i, a device that shares many of the original's traits yet provides a number of technology upgrades. While it still lacks auto-focus, the W890i steps up things to a 3.2 megapixel camera while still providing the same thin-profile look that W880 owners appreciate so much. Also noteworthy is an upgrade to quad-band GSM and the addition of HSDPA data onto the W880's existing UMTS support.
Like all Walkman handsets, the W890i comes equipped with Sony's Walkman music player application. The version in the W890i supports Windows Media DRM and a huge list of music file formats. The W890 can make use of wireless Bluetooth headphones, wired headphones, or even the built-in stereo speakers when they wish to listen to their music collection. Sony even saw fit to include a 2GB Memory Stick Micro card in the box with the phone, which should allow upwards of 1800 songs to be loaded onto the device, depending on music format and bitrate used. This Walkman phone also supports Sony's MegaBass function, TrackID, and Sony's SenseMe tempo/mood music categorization system. If all else fails, there's even an FM radio built-in.
