Unlike Motorola with the ROKR, Sony-Ericsson got the music phone down 100% right with the W800 Walkman phone. Now that the W800 has been out for awhile, the W900 is here to be let out of its cage so that it may take names and kick ass. But that's not all. Americans actually get something cool, this time! The W600 in the Americas and W550 are to be released about the same time as the W900 so that there are different price points for the consumer who is going the path of Sony-Ericsson. So the W900 is going to be a UTMS handset with a generous 470MB of internal memory for storing your tunes. If that's not enough, go ahead and throw a memory stick DUO in that bitch for up to 2GB of more storage. The W900 is also designed for ease of use with drag-n-drop functionality for transferring music and included software called "Disc2Phone" which makes it easy to put your CDs on the W900. It'll play all the basic formats like MP3, WMA, AAC, etc etc. But what about the other goods? I mean it's a phone...but we all know it's more than a phone. Well the goods can be viewed on a stunning 2.2 inch QVGA 262K TFT screen. The camera included is a whopping 2MP (sadly, no Zeiss optics) with LED flash that also sports the ability to capture video. After the jump you can catch the entire list of hotness that is the W900.
