Hikaru is W995

Sony Ericsson also just announced—yes, announced, not showcased—the W995, previously known only as Hikaru.

It has a very traditional SE design, which isn’t a bad thing, though it’s not exactly eye-catching.  The W995 features an 8MP camera, LED flash, face detection, WLAN, GPS, Walkman Player 4.0, and a QVGA 2.6-inch screen.

The camera is the most impressive part since Walkmans traditionally have very poor quality cameras.  This is the first phone (besides the W902) to feature an actual, usuable camera.

If you love Walkmans and need a good camera, there’s probably no other SE that will come close for a while.  For me, it’s not that impressive.  I’ve known about the feature set of the phone for quite a while now and nothing about it is immediately jaw-dropping.  Still, a good device, albeit a non-smartphone.
