Get the most out of your best music and favourite radio channels with Walkman™ player, FM radio and TrackID™ music recognition. The slider mobile phone comes with a complete package of entertainment features and the power to set up playlists to ensure you have the right music no matter the occasion. Share your tunes with friends via the speaker phone function – if you love your music they will too.

Need a change? Tune into the FM radio to listen to the latest news, music, sport commentary and talk shows. Heard something you like? Use TrackID™ to name that tune and artist, and you can even record a sample of a song from the radio to use as your new ringtone.

“The W205 is perfect for those who love portable music but have never had the Walkman™ phone experience.” said Mohammed Salama, Head of Marketing at Sony Ericsson-Middle East & North Africa. “The W205 is a stylish slider phone allowing you to enjoy your music wherever you are – whether it’s on the bus, at college or chilling in the park. You can also share more than music with the 1.3 megapixel camera. Capture the action in stills or video and send them to friends via MMS or via Bluetooth™. The multiple phonebook function is an added bonus – share your phone with your family but keep your contacts separate from theirs.”
