Sony Ericsson W380i shuts up easily

I think many find it annoying when your phone rings while you’re in class or in a meeting. (Damn it! I forgot to switch my phone to silent mode!) Then you’d need to go through the whole trouble pressing the buttons to turn it off.

Sony Ericsson Walkman phone’s new member, W380i, can help you in this awkward moment. All you need to do is slide your hand over the sensor on its shell, and the phone would immediately shut up and turn itself into silent mode. (Now wouldn’t it be nice if your girlfriend is made this way too)

W380i looks exactly like other clamshell phones. It uses, however, a brand new Walkman On Top design. The shell also includes a hidden OLED monitor on the outside that can show the usual date/time and battery but also songs’ information when it is in the walkman mode. It’s all in the outside so you don’t need to flip the shell all the time like those annoying clamshell phones.
