Sony Ericsson Hikaru was leaked a few days ago and now has been confirmed at MWC09 by Sony Ericsson as the W995. Most of what we expected have been confirmed by Sony Ericsson. The 8 Mega Pixel camera, the 2.6″ screen and states a 3.5mm jack for audio out there is not real evidence to show there is an actual physical port. Looking at the pictures it seems the SE Propriety handset connector is still there and my suspicions are it will have an adaptor – fail.
The W995 as you would expect with the Walkman series comes with many of the features found on previous devices. Apart from a few physical changes – such as the dedicate music buttons on the side, better headphones (thumbs up to that) and the kick stand, the W995 is just a beefed up Walkman series which really doesn’t offer much on the side of innovation and features. The Media Go feature is just another propriety software which makes it easier to transfer music and video to be able to play on the go.
The W995 will be available in selected markets from Q2 in the colors Progressive Black, Cosmic Silver and Energetic Red.
