The handset is currently available in Flame Black and Steel Silver – both sporting the iconic orange color in the casing. A secondary VGA camera is located at the top of the 262k colored TFT screen to aid 3G video calling. Primary camera module, which is located at the back of the Sony Ericsson W880i, is 2.0 megapixel.

Being a Walkman phone, music playback skills are the Sony Ericsson W880i's forte. Endowed with an upgraded Walkman media player v2.0, the Sony Ericsson W880i produces the best of sound. Apart from regular Walkman features like Mega Bass, equalizer and playlist support, the upgraded Walkman player features Track ID – a unique feature that provides you with desired information about songs and artists on demand. The handset's internal memory of 16 Mb may not sound much compared to its music playing skills, so a standard Sony Ericsson W880i kit is shipped with an 1GB memory card. You may opt to play your favorite tracks on the standard headphones, on the built in speaker, on a stylish Bluetooth wireless headset or even on your favorite pair of headphones.
