Sony Ericsson officially announces W980 aka Alona

Today at MWC Sony Ericsson officially announced the Alona, which will be sold under the W980 moniker. The latest Walkman phone brings 8GB of internal storage, superior sound quality, which is supposed to be true to the original recording. Also built-in is an FM transmitter that allows you to send whatever you’re listening to to any other device that has an FM receiver. That’s a pretty nifty feature. SE Walkman phones are generally good and this looks to be a great addition that has a 3.2-megapixel camera with 3.2x digital zoom, TrackID, Shake control, stereo Bluetooth, video streaming, video calling and it appears that you can tether it as well.

The UMTS/HSDPA/GSM/GPRS Walkman phone will be available Q3.
