If you had always been itching for some of that Sony Ericsson Walkman goodness but were hoping for something wrapped in a slightly more attainable package, this is your bag. Sony Ericsson has just announced the W205 and W205a Walkman phones, a pair Sony Ericsson promises to be the most affordable handsets to ever grace its Walkman line. Highlights:

  • Enjoy your music with the high quality Walkman experience
  • FM radio – catch up with the latest news and views
  • TrackID – name that tune at a press of a button
  • 1.3 megapixel camera – take great shots and share the fun instantly
  • Video recording – capture your favorite moments on film
  • Bluetooth™ – share your favorite songs, pictures and video clips, or connect to a wireless headset
  • Multiple phonebook – keep your contacts in order and share your mobile phone with your family
  • Memory Stick Micro (M2) support up to 2GB

While the press release throws the word “affordable” around willy nilly, no pricing information has been provided at this point. There’s also no word on exactly when the W205 or W205a will be released — SE says they’re both expected to launch within three months — though we do notice that USA is missing from the W205a’s local availability list despite the presence of GSM 850/1900. This either means a carrier deal is still in the works or SE is skipping the US — and we doubt many BGR readers will miss it. Besides, we’ve already seen plenty of new tween phones this week. Hit the jump for two more shots.
