Sony Ericsson W595 Linda Follows in Footsteps of W580

Sliding its way into the realm of spyshot superstars is the Sony Ericsson W595 Linda. Sony Ericsson has already proven that it has a long pedigree of fantastic music phones and the Linda appears to be no exception. The W595 looks to be the spiritual, if not official successor the W580, a phone that is already available through AT&T and Rogers Wireless.

In terms of specs and features, you should expect full Walkman capabilities (it is a W-series phone after all), FM radio support, Walkman 3 player, A2 software platform, pre-installed Google maps, and some sort of camera. There's also mention of a 3D accelerometer, possibly for gesture-based music controls.

Although all we really have is a leaked photograph, word on the street has it that Sony Ericsson will launch the W595 Linda some time this month. That's pretty soon!
