Completed by Newest Music Features and 5 MP Camera.


Sony Ericsson made in classic type, namely candybar same as other type of other products of Sony Ericsson. With slim body and circling in each side. No impressive on materials choice. But little great accent on backside because symetrical type, between camera and loudspeaker side. Place out of additional buttons only on one side. Rightside there were Multimedia Buttons, such as; Multimedia (play, next, prev), volume and camera. Leaving data cable port on otherside.

There was other button on other side, that's Walkman which was placed above of handphone. This button was functioned for speed playing on music player without enter the menu first. Also able to access to Shake Control menu with accelerometer technology.

Sony Ericsson W902 had disturbing D-Pad, because middle Pad and OK button made in smooth materials.


Sony Ericsson W902 was no Symbian type, neither Windows Mobile or other OS specifics. But it had a great one and had new interface, supported by TFT 262.144 colours screen. With QVGA resolution and 2,2 inches diagonal. Presented Black Sprite effect, also able to increase display quality although colour dominan were good special colour of Media and Walkman Features.

Top Features

Walkman Music Player and Media Features.
This gadget brought Walkman Music Player full version 3.0 with amount of additional functions. Beside able to browse artists, albums, tracks and playlists folders, also able to find SenseMe Feature, Genre folder, Year, Audio Books and Podcast.
SenseMe was feature as music file feature, which music file that we had divide into 4 big groups, namely fast, slow (tempo basically), sad, happy (beat basically). Able to add and edit manually like playlist. Even, able to found correct music on any situation.
Genre and Year were new folder, divide music files from genre and year when it launched, related belong t ID3 informations.
Shake Control functioned with push Walkman button and then shacking handphone to the right, left, front and behind for changing tracks and volume settings.
Voice output only was supported by a speaker, no good for listening via direct handphone internal speaker. So then, Sony Ericsson W902 brought good quality headset. Unfortunately, no port 3,5 mm in this handphones. But, lucky, there was extension cable being prepared in.
Music feature could be accessed via Walkman menu or push Walkman button on above of handphones or from Media Menu. Habitually, able to find folder filled with videos, photoes, games and web feed.

Internal Memory was not too big, only 25 MB capacity.
Sony Ericsson W902 had prepared M2 slot for 8 GB at selling packages. Able to fill songs with MP3 or M4A (AAC) formats as many as did we wanted, also videos files with MPEG4 format and photoes.


Sony Ericsson W902 brought 5 MP camera which same as Cyber-Shot camera's quality. Autofocus, Best Pic, Image Stabilizer, WB, until Geo-tag being supported features of this gadget. Unfortunately, no GPS receiver in it.
So, for sticking geo-tag for photoes, had to have external receiver or accessing data from rounding BTS (Base Transceiver Station).
Photoes look good but rather good indoor, because standard flashlight supported in. No better than xenon, its used LED technology, could give more bright photoes. Able to recording a video with QVGA resolution and 30 fps speed.
Fortunately, Sony Ericsson W902 had editor feature in it so able for editing photoes or videos in handphones, with any other devices. This features were namely as PhotoDJ and VideoDJ, formed on entertainment menu (included many great features in it).

HSDPA and Browser

Music Player of W902 also had network technology. So then, able to use for calling and also accessing the internet rapidly. Because of HSDPA, rapid data access able to up to 3,6 mbps speed. Many things that we could did with this bandwidth. Especially, on video call services and blogsites accessing. Photoes upload or musics download also did well.
For internet accessing, Sony Ericsson W902 had prepared speciall browser namely as Netfront Access Browser which able to show web and wap well.


Sony Ericsson W902's data port still used in one canal for data, power charging and audio. Foto data transferring, all of profiles had prepared for connecting all of devices without need to install first. If we would to get W902 as a modem, we need to install PC Suite for PC connecting. If we sent musics files from digital music player to PC, we choosed Media Transfer, but if we only sent a file, we choose mass storage profile. With Mass Storage profiles all of directories of W902 will be opened, on internal memory of handphones eventhough M2, it would helped when we print the photoes or move big size file from camera shot. Unfortunately, when Mass Storage were activated, handphones had to turn off for a while.
As an alternative, we able to use bluetooth, completed with A2DP feature as facility for listening wireless musics. More than that, bluetooth could sent music files from one device to other device. We could shared any video files and musics or photoes with friends no problem at all.


Many of features so need much of energy. Sony Ericsson W902 need good and big capacity of battery. So, W902 was injected by lithium polymer BST-38, 930 mAh capacity to support it. No GPS was logically, but HSDPA, Camera and music player make it difficult to take a long life. Fortunatelly, Sony Ericsson W902 had smart power managements. In one charging able to give about 2 days long life but it's not optimal because HSDPA and music player using long and longer would decrease of its power.
