About the Sony Ericsson W580i
Sony Ericsson Walkman phones bring the ease of digital music players to your mobile. So alongside all the usual advanced phone features, you can also download, stream, store and play back music in your mobile. Disc2Phone CD-ripping software lets you fill your phone with your favourite songs, no fuss.
Play your favourite tracks loud and clear through high-quality headphones or external speakers. MegaBass™ adds depth, and stereo widening for a bigger sound. When you hear a song you like but you don't know what it's called, ask TrackID™. Record a few seconds of the song and use TrackID™ to send the music to the Gracenote Mobile MusicID database for recognition. In seconds, you'll have the name, artist and album sent to your phone.
