Rock out with the Sony Ericsson 580i Walkman Phone.

Detailed information

The Sony Ericsson W580i is one of the models of the Walkman Phone series.  The front panel features the music player controls which slides open to reveal the keypad.  Quad-band GSM for global roaming, built-in FM radio, 2MP camera, Flight Mode, built-in pedometer, stop watch, comes with a 512MB MS Micro card.  In Walkman mode, press and hold the Walkman key, shake the phone and it will select another song in your current playlist.  Shake Shuffle.

Cellphones on DGW

Dick says he rarely does cellphones, and Leo says Dick never does.  Apart from the Gadget Warehouse StarTAC (Episode 65), Dick has covered only 2 cellphones.  Both were LG phones, "The V" (Episode 9) and "The enV" (Episode 219).

Holiday Arrangements

Leo is off to Egypt to see the Pyramids over Christmas.  Dick and Leo will pre-record shows for the week of 17th December, and for the next 2 weeks, they will play the "Best Of" episodes prepared by George Wood.  That would give a whole new meaning to "Jingle All The Way".

Archos 605 Wifi

Keith has previously written to Dick and Leo about the Archos 605 Wifi but writes in again to refer to another feature, a podcast management software called Archos Link.  Dick and Leo think they have talked about the Archos 605 on the show, but they haven't, technically.  The 605 is from Archos' Generation 5 series while the AV700 (Episode 64), 604 Wifi (Episode 218), 404 Camcorder (Episode 262), and 704 Wifi (Episode 297) are from older series.
