Sony Ericsson W508

Launched: 2009

Released in 2009, this was a handset that epitomised the confidence of Sony Ericsson as a brand. Using the meaningful “Walkman” moniker, this was characterised as a handset for the masses that nonetheless contained a handful of premium features.

Boasting a roomy 100MB (expandable to 16GB with a M2 card) of internal memory, it sported physical music controls on the outside, a relatively advanced 3MP camera for the price, head-turning design and more.

At a time when smartphones were beginning to take hold, this proved that flip-phones still had what it took to compete at the high-end, and for a much lower price-point.
