Sony Ericsson W980 Walkman review: 8 gigs of character

GSMArena team, 23 May 2008

It's no news any more that we've been playing with one of the hotties of the season for some time now. Sony Ericsson W980 made a glorious entrance but we're yet to see about the exit. Set to top the Walkman feature phone lineup, W980 carries along 8 GB worth of storage, a 3 megapixel camera and a built-in accelerometer. The touch-sensitive keys and the latest Sony Ericsson feature phone interface add to the excitement. Still not interested? Then try to think of another music phone with a built-in FM transmitter!

GSMArena team, 16 May 2008

Sophisticated looks and exclusive bodywork have unfailingly implied a no-thrills performance. Now, that may as well be the Secret about LG KF750.

Nokia 3500 classic review: Classicaly simple

GSMArena team, 11 April 2008

To get it straight, Nokia 3500 classic is not the kind of handset to have you head-over-heels in love. It was never meant to be. What really matters in this classic from-the-head-not-the-heart scenario is ease of use, decent looks and passable performance. The less...
