UPDATE: Sony Ericsson Unveils W880 Walkman Musicphone, Slimmer K810i Cybershot

UPDATE : Sony Ericsson has also announced a less pretty looking W610 Walkman for North America. Thanks to the quad-band restrictions the W880 is unlikely to make it to the North American shores, but the W610 will fill in. Problem is that it’s 512 MB rather than 1 GB and it’s not as thin ; though you do get a whole half hour extra talk-time on the battery. Cheer up...

Sony Ericsson has gotton around to unveiling the anticipated W880 Walkman musicphone. Coming in at a paltry 9.4 mm thickness, the W880 will have 1 GB of memory for music, a 1.8" QVGA display and, SE claims, up to 6 hours of talk time, 20 hours music playback and up to 425 hours of standby time on battery.

The phone will also include a 2.0 magapixel camera, as well as Sony’s music management software in Walkman Player 2.0 and Disc2Phone, with USB connectivity to your computer.

The hitch ? Well, for those of you waiting patiently in the States this is a quad band UMTS 2100, GPRS 900/1800/1900 phone, and SE has said that it will launch in "Selected Markets" in Q1 (that’s "Sometime before April", to you and me). Patience is a virtue... Repeat...

Meanwhile the company has also announced the new 3.2 megapixel K810i Cybershot, same as the 3.2 megapixel K800 Cybershot except thinner, at 17 mm young. Of course the video calling might never make it to the States, nor the phone itself, if that’s too big of a hitch... Gee, SE really don’t seem to like North America this morning...
