Sony Ericsson also announced a new member of its Walkman line, the W700 (pictured at right). Besides its music player, it has a 2-megapixel camera, and the company touts its as being well-suited for flying because you can turn off the cellphone and still use the music player. That phone will also ship during Q2, and will be available in titanium gold, with a white model available in some markets. No pricing was announced on either product.
