Do you surround yourself with music? If this is the case, SE has a unique handset that will be perfect for you. You do not have to worry. This new smartphone is not a high-end mobile phone like the XPERIA Play. This means that you do not have to spend an arm and a leg to own one. This is the Sony Ericsson W8.
If you cannot get enough of music, you are constantly looking for new tracks by new artists. You may also be in search of classics from renowned song writers, composers, singers, or bands. However, it may take you quite some time to search the internet especially if you have no information of the track you just heard. Does this mean that you should abandon your search for more music? The answer is no. SE’s Walkman Phone offers a number of features that allow you to know more about the music you are looking for.
The feature on this handset that allows you to get more information on an unknown track is TrackID music recognition. How does it work? Whenever you hear something you like, the first step is to record just a few seconds of the song you have heard on the Sony Ericsson W8. You can do this from either an internal or external source. Just a few seconds of the tune is enough to get the information you need.
After you are done recording the short segment, the second step involves sending the recording to the TrackID service. Once the segment is sent, it is analyzed against a massive database. This database will look for musical fingerprints unique to various songs. You don’t have to worry. Despite comparing the recording to a massive database, it will now take too long.
In a matter of seconds, information such as the artist’s name and the specific album will be sent to the Sony Ericsson W8. Now that you have all the information you need, does this mean that have to go to the nearest record store or online to get the specific album or song? No. You do not have to go through the hassle. There is an option to purchase the specific track or album from a particular artist on PlayNow. PlayNow allows you download music and games directly to the Walkman Phone. This will allow you to add the track on the smartphone’s Walkman Player.
Not only does the Sony Ericsson W8 allow you to get to know more about music that moves you, it also allows you get the tracks and play them on the Walkman Phone.
