Sony Ericsson W8 unboxing

Sony Ericsson W8 retail box

The retail package is where the Walkman branding begins to make a difference in the shape of a nice 3.5mm headphone jack with music controls. Other than that, it's the usual charger and USB cable, and a complimentary 2GB MicroSD card. The latter may not be enough for a music-centric device but it's a start.

There is a handful of quick user guides too in several languages. As for the 2GB microSD card, it is already inserted in the device’s memory card slot.
