First Sony Walkman branded phone

Mobileburn has some nice pics and a few specs on the new Sony W800 phone I mentioned in the"commute-cast" podcast from February 17th.

This is an interesting convergence device to me, simply because of the expected 30 hour battery life when playing music; that and the capability to actually PLAY music, of course. If I could gain "iPod" functionality in a cell phone without losing any features of the phone, I would call that an SDC ("successful device convergence"). Just for kicks, Sony appears to have included a 2 megapixel camera in the phone as well. Hmm.....adaptation of the .mp3 format a few months ago and now this? Is Sony on the comeback trail?
