Sony Ericsson W995 selling strongly one month after launch
Sony Ericsson has seen encouraging signs from the W995 Walkman handset, one month after it first went on sale.
The manufacturer’s marketing manager, Dave Hilton, told Mobile: ‘We are very pleased with the way the W995 [pictured]has sold. It proves there is still a strong market for people who don’t want a touch-screen, and that there is still an appetite for slider phones.’
It comes ahead of an Xperia-branded Google Android phone, after a video of the device, codenamed ‘Rachael’, was leaked onto the internet.
‘Rachael’ is anticipated to have the highest screen resolution ever produced on a mobile, as well as an eight-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G and HSDPA.
