Summary: The Sony Ericsson W705 Walkman takes a good swing at replacing our MP3 players with its great sound reproduction, dedicated music-player keys, heaps of features and classy looks. But it's missing a standard 3.5mm headphone jack and its music transfer software gives us a nosebleed, so we may wait for the W995 -- if it ever comes
Pros: Design is just the right side of bling; great sound quality; speedy Wi-Fi and HSPA connectivity; podcast support; FM radio.
Cons: Proprietary headphone jack; teeny-tiny Walkman button; dull, confusing music transfer software.
Excerpt: Primarily a media phone, the W705 is for those that don't ask too much in terms of the camera or email functionality. It'll impress people, thanks to its shiny good looks. Just don't offer to show them the iPlayer on it. What we like There is one thing that will immediately make you gasp when you get this phone out of the box. The screen clarity? The range of buttons? No. The brave decision to go with both silver and gold for the front of the phone. But do you know what?

Excerpt: As usual Sony Ericsson is out with another smashing looking handset in the W705 Walkman Series handset. But all that glitters is not gold, at least not necessarily. So without further ado, here’s the W705 and my opinion on the same. Form Factor It’s a well crafted handset, that’s the first thing I thought when I laid eyes on it. The 2.4-inch display sports a 240 x 320 pixel resolution with 256k colors. It’s bright and clear enough to view in all lighting conditions.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson keeps adding more phones to its Walkman series portfolio so that anyone can choose their favorite form factor. This time, we had the chance to test a promising Walkman slider – Sony Ericsson W705. I wasn't expecting less performance and quality from the device, but I was pleasantly surprised by its stylish design.
Pros: One of the best looking sliders belonging to the Walkman series portfolio, Sony Ericsson W705 promises to attract fans of the brand and form factor. The excellent multimedia features, together with top notch data transfer technologies (HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP) and low price, make the handset a good choice for those looking for a music phone.
Cons: There are two main problems that I couldn't bear: the low quality of the voice sound during some calls and the mediocre camera, which misses so many capabilities. Probably adding a GPS receiver would've raised its desirability, but this is only a minor problem.
