The W380i is a Sony Ericsson WalkmanÂ® music phone which comes with a stylish clamshell opening mechanism & with a beautifully finished casing. Out of all the phones, this is probably the one with the most different design. The Sony Ericsson W380i Walkman phone is a flip phone but unlike other flip phones, at first glance, the Sony Ericsson W380i doesn’t seem to have an external display.
The handset is available in two sleek colours which include an electric purple & a magnetic grey colour. Cool and special color huh? The clamshell design is stylish & practical as the phone comes with touch control music keys & music information displayed on the external casing of the handset. The user can use the external controls to play, pause or skip their music.
The phone comes with a high colour internal screen which is ideal for displaying music information, call details, images & messaging service when the phone is in its flipped open position. The internal screen is a TFT screen which is 1.9 inches in size & provides a screen resolution of 176 x 220 pixels on a 262k colour screen.
The W380i comes with a key lock feature which is simple to activate & allows the user to lock their external keys, so therefore the music will not accidentally start playing when the handset is in the users pocket or bag.
There is a very interesting and cool feature in W380i. There is a motion sensor which allows you to wave your hand over the phone in order to snooze an alarm or to silence an incoming call. Wow, it’s a pretty cool feature.
The W380i comes with 14MB internal memory and as other phones, there is Memory Stick Micro expandable memory. Besides, the W380i comes with a built in camera feature which allows the user to capture photos during their day. The camera is a 1.3 megapixel camera which comes complete with a 4 x digital zoom which allows the user to get up closer to their target when taking a shot.
