SE w8 only the copy of x8. w8 has a no stereo speaker & shake control. It’s an only logo of ‘W’ not a really WALKMAN phone. I think it sound quality is also ordinary.
SE w8 is a not walkman phone. I never want purchase it, but I am waiting form really Walkman Phone.
w595 & w995 is a great walkman phone. We can’t compare this to w8.
This is a FANTASTIC phone for those people who aren't looking for a "Always-Online" smartphone.
Hopefully carriers will sell this phone at a low price and non-data plans. Then casual mobile users can make use of the walkman-features, android market (on wifi) and not have to pay for data plans.
hello Sony .i am static using a Sony mobile .i like the phone .but I said one Q.the android ,,2.3 is come in the market .than why lance 2.1
please upgrade u x8 to at least android 2.2.....then d others will buy w8.......android 2.1 is outdated.....
Talkonly, 23 Apr 2011I don't know about Indian user but most East Asian and South-East Asian user doesn't care abou... moreI think it is impossible after gingerbread they upgrade android os to coca-cola. But android soda could be possible though.
I really think that SE had a whole alot of x8's that didn't sale so they just reused them to not waste money.Now the xperia mini 2 and the mini pro 2 would have been a whole lot better!!!
I'm glad that our country is one of the first countries to have this phone...(i don't want it, i'm just happy that our country is mentioned..LOL.. XD)
Hey Sony Ericsson! any new cyber-shot.? the C901 is soooooooooooo old and it needs a successor... my K850i wants a new Grandson... LOL.. XD
aww man, SE makes a duplicate of X8... there is no difference about X8 and W8
i agree! Sonyericsson can compete with other manufacturers. They are not a major player anymore! It is only a cheat will add one thing to an already existing phone, rebrand it and push it into the market for your idiots to buy! U've failed! And you'll never get a cent from me!
I don't know about Indian user but most East Asian and South-East Asian user doesn't care about updating to froyo or gingerbread or soda or coca-cola. For me (I'm malaysian) android 2.1 better enough to make most of the task. Also mobile internet is pretty expensive here.
People who think x8 and w8 are the same device..i must tell you they are not.The differences are many like--
1.x8 has x before 8 and w8 has w before 8.
2.w8 will come in more different back covers (hopefully)
3.w8 will have the walkman logo(that's right folks)
See ,w8 is a totally new device...a new era of walkman device..Lol.Disappointed to be honest...!
se doing dis for marketing purpose.. cause there is many se fans out there which is using walkman series especially asian which is much outdated. when this lunch.. many will @.@ and grab one sick old spec device..
Emmm..that i waiting sooo long..the Walkman after zylo and Yendo..but what i hate is..WHERE THE CRYSTAL CLEAR SOUND EXPERIENCE and Stereo Speaker like on W995 the Great...no equilizer,no way walkman...
SE is out of pace with its competitors and failed to understand requirements of market. very soon will be dis-appeared from the market.
is this some kind of a joke ?
what is the fu***** differences between this " new device " and X8 ?!?
after the new phones neo , arc and play , it make sense to create something cheaper with mid range features but what happens is they didn't even update the OS or improve the screen size or give us a better camera and instead they give us the outstanding uncomparable unbelievable and never seen before feature " ladies and gentlemen let me introduce to you 2006 invention ...... walkman " !!!! ( what a gimmick ). i was palning to buy neo but it turned out to be so expensive by comparison to nokia and samsung . so i think i'm going to get c7 or n8 or galaxy sl .
