|The W41S wins you over easily, thanks to its very appealing looks and of course the complete state of art technology that has been used in it. We have mentioned about the W41s more than once on this site, however with some pretty detailed pictures and details popping up, we could not help posting more details for our users.|
Like all the recently announced or released handsets for KDDI; the W41s which is made by SonyEricsson is a clamshell. The images that we have feature a W41s in gleaming blue color. SonyEricsson have given this phone a small monochrome displayon the outside, nothing fancy like the Samsung clamshells which have high end secondary displays. However the display being longitudinal and set at an angle vertical to the phone, makes it look different and cool. The writing at the top is a warning that the handset is FeLiCa compliant. Just below the display, there is a big LED which turns on whenever the FeLiCa system is activated.
Opening the clamshell shows the designer keypad. Having a shade just slightly darker then that of the color, the sleek keypad adds to the beauty of the phone. The small camera lens is powerful enough to take photogrpahs of 1.3 megapixels at the most. At the hinge, there is a smaller LED which basically shows network connectivity. The W41S can be charged by placing it in the charge stand rather than the usual chargers which simply snap into the power port of the handset. Since the handset lays special emphasis on its music features, one simply needs to check out the earphones attached to the phone. They come with a complete controller allowing you to change tracks, adjust the volume and of course talk into it, using it as a normal handsfree when there is a call. The handset is also LISMO compatible, KDDI's music service which allows users to download music , something like Apple's iTunes.
Downloaded music can be stored on the handsets own memory (40 megabytes) or the memory stick duo (which can take a stick of upto 2 GB maximum size). The handset can also recieve FM radio channels. The camera and accompanying software can be used to set up the handset as a bar code reader, something that most high end phones in Japan are able to do.
