    The leaks continue ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) next week. This time it is the Sony Ericsson W995 (Hikaru), first rumoured in October last year. It is an 8.1 Megapixel Walkman-branded slider phone with metal housing. This could be a first for SE, but we will finally see a 3.5mm jack on a Walkman branded phone (I'm glad SE has finally seen sense, although it's been a long time coming). It will also come with an 8GB Memory Stick Micro (M2) card for storage.

    No ideas on pricing right now, it is expected to be released at the end of Q2. Further detail is expected on Sunday 15th February at the start of MWC.

    Features:
    • Slider walkman phone
    • 8 MP camera with autofocus
    • 2,6″ QVGA scratch-resistant TFT screen, which support up 262,144 colours
    • 118MB internal memory with 8GB memory card
    • Walkman 4.0 software with "Clear Audio" with "PHF" Technology
    • MediaGo software (handles music/video media files of almost any format, and convertd them to work on the mobile phone). It also shares media with your PS3 over WiFi, and takes advantage of Sony's PlayNow services, including downloaded movies purchased on your PC.
    • 3.5mm headphone socket
    • Bright Photo Flash LED (looks like no xenon flash)
    • QVGA video recording at 30 fps
    • Dedicated music keys (on its right side)
    • Stereo speakers
    • GPS
    • WiFi
    • Kickstand at rear to watch videos/listen to music on desk
    • Dimensions of 97mm x 49mm x 15mm. Weight of 113 grams

    Looks similar to the old W880i but slide instead.
