Sony Ericsson W902 review: Cyber-Walkman-shot

GSMArena team, 06 February 2009

A phone like no other or a quick-fix Cyber-shot Walkman mongrel trying to pass off as a hip novelty Ė you can call the Sony Ericsson W902 whatever you like, but it will still be the best cameraphone among music phones. The 5 megapixel auto focus camera opens a new chapter in the Walkman book...

LG KP500 Cookie review: Grab a bite

GSMArena team, 30 January 2009

It almost feels unfair of LG to give the KP500 a name that's so hard to say no to. The Cookie scent seems to have inspired a craving already and LG are hoping to have you coming back for more. A genuinely affordable touchscreen, a very decent specs sheet, and fun and friendly interface...

GSMArena team, 14 January 2009

It's touchscreen o'clock for Nokia and the stage is set for the 5800 XpressMusic. Go ahead and touch it. We did and we've got a story to tell.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 review: A new experience

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 review: A new experience

GSMArena team, 23 December 2008

Thereís a lot to fall for in Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1. Possibly the hottest looker of a PocketPC is also heavy on skill. Heavy enough to not just scratch out a living as a one-hit-wonder but aim for the WinMo top. The extra solid metal looks, gorgeous screen and the right pinch of novelty called XPERIA panels look to us as good enough reasons for the X1 to be hyped and romanticized...
