According to the rumors floating around the Sony Ericsson blogs, a Sony Ericsson announcement is planned for Thursday November 6th. The highlight of the announcement is to be the formal launch of the Rika as the Walkman W705 – the Walkman version of the G705 which sports the following specs:

  • 2.4″display (320×240)
  • 3.2MP non-AF camera with LED flash
  • Wi-Fi, aGPS, Bluetooth 2.0 (A2DP)
  • 4 Gb M2 and HPM-77
  • Clear Audio Experience (similar to the W902/W980)
  • YouTube application
  • Chat view for messaging
  • 3.5 mm audio jack
  • Available in Passionate Red and Luxury Silver

An Orange-branded version of the W705 is also expected to be confirmed. In addition to the Rika/W705, Sony Ericsson is expected to announce the MBS-900, a high end portable wireless speaker. The MBS-900 is a 2.1 wireless speaker that has Bluetooth, touch controls and an OLED display. A somewhat disappointing lineup for the final announcement of 2008 but considering the state of the global economy, a slowdown in handset releases is not entirely surprising.
