This week we learnt of a new and exciting feature in Sony Ericsson's range of Walkman phones, called TrackID.
Basically, TrackID is an application within the latest Walkman phones (we reviewed the latest W850i) that enables you to record a few seconds of a song, send it to Sony Ericsson's new music recognition service and have information about that song sent to your phone almost immediately.
So if you've ever heard part of a song, but can't remember what it is called or who the artist is, then this is definitely for you. The process is surprisingly simple as well; just record up to five seconds of music through the phones built-in microphone or even record directly off the FM radio, and as long as the track is listed in Sony Ericsson's database, track title and artist information will be sent to your phone.
A simple innovation, yet so effective.
