Optimized for music playing with external music keys, stereo Bluetooth support, over-the-air music downloads from Napster Mobile and eMusic Mobile, and Shake Control, the Sony Ericsson W518a clamshell phone for AT&T is also packed with gaming, multimedia and social networking offerings that make this phone a thin little entertainment powerhouse. And it's easy to manage the music in your phone--one click starts the Walkman music player, enabling you to play, rewind, fast forward, equalize, shuffle tracks and create playlists just like in any other digital music player.

This phone can quickly download video, music and more over AT&T's lightning quick HSPDA 3G network. This GPS-enabled phone can access the AT&T Navigator service for turn-by-turn directions as well as its Video Share service, which enables you to send video of yourself to another compatible phone while making a voice call (see more details on optional services below). Other features include a 3.2-megapixel camera/camcorder, memory expansion via Memory Stick Micro (M2) cards, built-in Facebook application, access to mobile e-mail and instant messaging, and up to 4 hours of talk time.

Phone Features Sony Ericsson W518a Phone
Other features include a 3.2-megapixel camera/camcorder, Bluetooth stereo music streaming, and memory expansion via Memory Stick Micro (M2) media.
The Sony Ericsson W518a is a unique, all-in-one device that enables you to stay connected and express yourself on the go. The thin clamshell W518a sports an internal 2.2-inch LCD screen with a 240 x 320-pixel resolution, and it's complemented by a 1.1-inch OLED screen (128 x 36 pixels) on the exterior of the clamshell that displays current time, incoming calls, currently playing music, signal strength, and battery life. The phone has a 100 MB internal memory, which can be expanded via optional Memory Stick Micro (M2) cards up to 8 GB in size. The internal phonebook can store an almost unlimited amount of contacts, and it features multiple numbers per contact, support for caller groups, and picture/ringer ID capabilities.

Packed with social networking features, just open the phone to view Facebook friends' status updates and profile photos. And one click from the W518a's standby screen allows social butterflies to update their Facebook status. It's also easy to upload photos to your profile directly from the W518a's 3.2-megapixel camera.

This Walkman phone offers a full-function digital audio player that's compatible with MP3 and AAC files, and it includes Sony Ericsson's innovative "shake to shuffle" feature. With Shake Control activated, just flick your wrist and a vibration lets you know that the track has been changed--a new song from your current playlist is randomly selected and automatically played. Playback settings also include an equalizer, playlists, stereo widening, and shuffle and loop modes. This Walkman phone features MegaBass enhancement for added depth of sound, a flight mode that lets you keep listening to tunes with the phone's network connectivity turned off, and the PlayNow feature that enables you to download new music tones directly to the phone.

The phone features a unique Gesture control that allows you to mute calls with a wave of your hands or snooze its alarm without having to interrupt what you’re doing. When a call comes in, a simple movement of your hand back and forth over the phone mutes the ringtone. Similarly, sweep your hand over the phone when using it as your alarm clock to put it into snooze mode.

Additionally, the integrated accelerometer allows you to shake or tilt the W518a to simulate motion while playing video games. The intuitive Media User Interface rotates depending on how you're holding the phone, so you can see everything you need at a glance. Auto rotate works for photos, videos and games.

Hands-free communication is easy thanks to the integrated speakerphone. This phone also provides Bluetooth wireless connectivity (version 2.0), and includes profiles for communication headset, hands-free car kits, and file transfer. With the A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones. You can connect your laptop (either via Bluetooth or wired USB) and enjoy dial-up networking--surf the Internet, send e-mail, and access files from a server (additional charges or subscription applicable).

The built-in 3.2 megapixel camera captures stills and video--and playback of video or still pictures is only limited to the memory card size (or capped at 20 seconds for sending via MMS). You can choose from four resolution sizes and two quality settings for still photos, and it also features white balance and brightness adjustments, digital zoom (up to 3.2x), night mode, panorama, and multi-shot mode. With the phone's built-in GPS, images can be "geo-tagged" with the exact location where they were shot. Video clips can be shot at up to QVGA resolution (320 x 240 pixels) at 30 frames per second (fps).

The phone also ships with a built-in e-mail client with support for POP3 and IMAP4 protocols, while the included Access NetFront Web Browser allows you to surf full HTML web sites. It also supports RSS feeds, allowing you to use your phone to view up-to-the-minute news and other content from selected Web sites and blogs. Just subscribe to the feed and let it come to you. Support is built in for sending and receiving text, video, graphics and sound via messages. T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit--a plus for mobile e-mail and text messaging users.

Other features include:
* Flight mode allows you to safely use the non-wireless functions of this phone (such as music, games, or organizer functions) on an airplane during flight
* Mobile e-mail and Instant Messenger for quick and easy access on the go (instant messaging via AOL, Windows Live, Yahoo!)
* USB mass storage capabilities
* Built-in FM radio
* Access to YouTube streaming videos
* Organizer tools: calendar, calculator, alarm clock, tasks, timer, notes, and stopwatch
