Music To Go
This Walkman phone offers a full-function digital audio player that's compatible with MP3 and AAC files. Playback settings also include an equalizer, playlists, stereo widening, and shuffle and loop modes. It also 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.
With the TrackID service, you can identify any song that you can hear by just recording a snippet of sound using the microphone. After sending the file for recognition, you'll have the name, artist and album sent to your phone.
