  1. Ahhhh…So hot Max.
    Thanks

    It’s really nice and I hope that spot above screen would be secondary video call. 0==(D)

  2. Say hello to Hikaru, 3.5 mm jack, 8 mp cam, aGPS, wifi, and all the other specs SEs have…

  3. yeah i think it’s hikaru too….

    cool… 8)

    same request with synn

    Specs please?!

    hahaha~~~

  4. Yeah,Hikaru is possible,nice screen,nice design.
    Will Hikaru being called W990 or W770?
    And also thx to Maximys to post such a good news! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Hey max, does it have the new A300 platform? Also, is the 8GB memory on board+ a memory slot?

  6. This looks amazing, especially the 2.6″ screen, lets just hope they dont ruin it by using Windows mobile or some crappy UIQ touch screen. Keep it with the normal S.E. operating system and this is a winner !!

  7. i think SE should release a candy bar of hikary not a slide and it looks to me a plastic not high quality built.similar built w595 but with a high spec. โ— โ— โ“

  8. let`s hope it appear with touch screen.i think it`s very good to have this feature on Hikaru 8)

  9. to me, hikaru looks like w910 with metal housing. one thing I consider is that every sliding phone is sluggish unlike candybar one. i’m definitely want to see the live pics as it mentioned with metal housing. and i also wonder if this hikaru using Xenon flash or what. as I just tried the SE C905 taking incredible pictures with its Xenon Flash…. salute….

  10. Is the 8 gb internal or a M2 card? 16 gb would have been good, 8 gb isn’t enough SE!!!!
    Is it touch screen? I don’t like touch screens, my W960 was very slow ๐Ÿ™
    Price? 500 euros?

  11. Great!
    Maximys, thank you!
    It is the best news for me!
    I want to know more about specs of Hikaru.

  12. thank’s

    but…onestly
    nothing new…
    interestings are:WALKMAN 4,16M colors and jack…

  13. Can Anyone confirm for sure if it will be touchscreen? If so, what OS might it run? Because UIQ will no longer be used, not so?
    Hikaru = W905?

  14. SE think that WALKMAN phones can play only music and cameraphone is good only to shoot photo…
    no xeno for walkman,no jack for cybershot
    and touch only for business…

    this hikaru is BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING
    he seem awesome but only design,it can’t beat N95 of 2005

  15. Moving on, specs great, BUT design, poor very lack luster in many ways no inovation at all just a copy and pate look, every1 bases there phone on looks unfortuantley this isnt a head turner ๐Ÿ™

  16. Always the same new, old devices….WHY? ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    Where is s.th. like the Nokia 5800 by SonyEricsson?? SE needs a touchscreen device with great design, good technical features and for a fair price, f.e. with Android OS. Such a device would be a bestseller for this lame duck called SonyEricsson. They could also take this new touchscreen walkman by Sony and build in there telephone / SMS functions, it would be a perfect phone with this “want to have” feeling, that only the Apple iPhone and now the Palm Pre could create so far….

  17. My only wondering is where did you get the picture and info from… It’s just that the picture resembles very much to a concept, rather to a 3D model of an actual phone :-S

  18. ALL OF YOU CAN’T CREATE AN OPINION ONLY BY 1(!!) PICTURE!!! WAIT FOR THE MWC AND THEN SAY THAT IT IS “COPY & PASTE”!!! IT’S REAL “SONY STYLE”!! AND DON’T COMPARE IT WITH NOKIA AND ESPECIALLY SAMSUNG!!!!! THEY SUCKS!! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ and for the touch… it comes soon…

  19. S.E. is always best for it’s quallity, specially all those walkmen series. But one thing is always missing and that is a 3.5 mm jack to listen music. Why there is no 3.5 mm jack like Nokia????????? Sony Ericsson should realese such a walkman phone with a 3.5 mm jack + 5/8 MPX camera with XENON Flash + QVGA Display + 8/16 GB Memory + good battery + should under 100 gm and not so dick. Hope very much that Hikaru will fulfill all these cryteria. Please Sony Ericsson please…………………. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

  20. When it comes to mobile phone, Sony Ericsson is the leader in terms of design, style, functions and size. They should be NUMBER ONE instead of competitor (Nokia). Really hope to see a powerful walkman phone with cybershot functions all integrated into one. I can’t wait to see this phone. It would be great if its touchscreen. Currently, I’ waiting for S.E. to launch something really great. ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. to MAHESH:
    GSMArena published all features on the article on their web site. listen the man who wrote it a few posts before. why no one listen to him.
    they leaked it all, and you may see that u are wrong about the memory.
    go and check the news…

  22. I don’t believe the thing that gsmarena say. ๐Ÿ™„
    edit : from gsmarena ” Sony Ericsson, Walkman, MWC 2009, Rumors”

  23. Hey, It’s gonna be my next phone.. And to those who do not like this phone or Sony Ericsson, please stay away from this blog. For goodness sake Samsung, Nokia and LG is way behind.

  24. to w960

    i saw the phone a month ago, it’s 95% as on the picture and the features are the same as gsmarena wrote

  25. THU, how do you know all that? Does it have memory slot, internal or both?
    What are the complete specs? So you have more pics? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. i saw the phone a month ago, that’s it. i told you. i don’t care you believe it or not. you’ll see the official pics and specs after a few days on MWC and you’ll know i was right.

    i think what gsmarena wrote on their site is enough – 8gb card, gps, wi-fi, 8mp, qvga video, kickstand, non-smart OS, walkman 4.0, 3.5 jack, 2.6 screen, slider
