Weighing in at a pocket-sized 97 grams, it delivers 3G Broadband (HSDPA) Web browsing on your mobile. It also means that it takes about 14 seconds to download a full-length music track; up to four times faster than average on a 3G phone.
There’s no need to worry if you just can’t place a song that you hear on the radio. The V640i’s in-built TrackID feature lets you record a 5 second music clip – either by tagging it from the phone’s own FM Radio or from a nearby stereo – and then within seconds receive notification back of the song title, the artist and the album name. The TrackID music recognition software can then provide a direct link to the homepage of Vodafone’s Music Store for fast track download. Hear it, identify it and own it.
More than just a music phone, the Sony Ericsson V640i keeps you entertained and fully informed. It will playback video at 15 frames per second and this, coupled with the bright 2.0 inch screen, makes it ideal for checking out the latest music videos when you are on-the-move. The V640i comes complete with pre-loaded Google Maps and eBay clients and also supports RSS Feeds to keep you up-to-date with the latest news, weather and entertainment.
If you prefer to capture the action for yourself, the V640i’s 2.0 megapixel camera is always at hand to shoot still pictures or moving images. Share these instantly with friends via MMS, email or postcard; or by uploading them to your own online gallery, or blogsite. Share the Web address to share your latest photos or video clips.
The V640i comes complete with new Media Manager software to let you easily move your favorite music, photos, videos and more between your PC and your phone. Music tracks or video clips will be automatically converted into phone-friendly formats and creating playlists or adding album artwork to your tracks is simple.
