The Carphone Warehouse has announced it is the exclusive stockist of the Sony Ericsson W995 in silver, now available for free on contract.

The phone comes with a year's free access to 15 movies each month, which can be watched an unlimited number of times for up to 90 days.

The titles can be downloaded onto a PC using the PlayNow arena website and then sideloaded onto the W995 via the included "Media Go" application, claiming to identify the best quality format that the phone supports and convert accordingly.

Combining Sony Walkman features and an 8.1-megapixel Sony Cybershot camera, the W995 offers 8GB of memory, a 2.6-inch screen, built-in stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity.

A quick glance on Carphone's site shows the handset offered from free on £35 per month contracts.
