Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson W595 is an improved version of the W580 that boasts 3G support, a 3.2-megapixel camera, stereo speakers and the 'share jack' that allows you to plug two sets of headphones in, so that you can listen to tracks with a friend.
Conclusion: Overall the W595 is a great addition to the Walkman range although it does really offer anything groundbreaking it is always nice for a little updated styling and functionality within any given mobile series.
Excerpt: To be frank the W595's market position hasn't seen any major market shift compared with its predecessor, the W580. Sony Ericsson are still banking on 15 to 24 year olds with an emphasis on socializing rather than design.
Excerpt: The W595 is a simple upgrade to some of Sony Ericsson’s other Walkman handsets. In fact you might say it’s the same as an earlier model the W890 , only in a different form factor. The Specs are almost identical with a few minor distinctions. Take a look.
