US To Get Sony-Ericsson W610

Another day, another Walkman phone in the news. Sony-Ericsson announced today that if you live in the US, you’ll be treated to yet another GSM, Walkman-series phone—the W610.

It’ll pack an FM Radio with RDS, an LED flash for its 2-megapixel camera, improved battery (thank god), Bluetooth with A2DP support and a 512MB Memory Stick (Duo?) is included.

Between the feature set and design, I’d say the W610 is looking like the older W810 quite a bit, which is far from groundbreaking.

Sony-Ericsson better start coming up with some fresh ideas and designs or its going to end up in the gutter. You can nab the W610 in Q2 for some exorbitant price from whichever carrier it ends up going with.
