oops, post it on the wrong phone. the one i got is actually k800. k790 is little bit cheaper without the 3g support. so i decided to get the k800.
well, i just bought the phone in chinatown,nyc for $440 without the memory card. i want the one with the memory included. the price is only $40 more for the 512mb m2 card. they said they don't have it instock. guess i have to order it online or somewhere else. btw, great great phone. i am so happy with the camera quality.
Is there gonna b a walkman fone with the same 3.2mp camera, does any 1 kno...?
Can I use the k790i in the US? Im thinking of ordering it off of www.bargainoffers.com
But they only have the k790i not the k790a.
great phone at a great price. great camera quality. u all wont believe that after getting the pics. developed they didnt seem to be taken from a mobile camera. u all guys go for it. best product with best camera options in the market.
If you think you will send an email to SE and get a reply, forget it. I have mailed them twice, no reply as yet. My first message was on monday 7th Aug.
Yes it comes with 64mb memory. I got it too.Please set the photo resolution to 3M and click. It may hang, if it does then you too got a defective piece like me. All the best.
Alpha in Andheri is the biggest Chor ( Thief
).What he does is he will give you the original Peace and the Battery is at times Duplicate along with the charger and the memory card.
You need to use the phone carefully and SE has excellent Calrity in terms of Camera and the Screen. It's worth it.
There is a tip to maintenance the joystick. One from our friends has share that.
all SE phones have problem with the joystick. thats wat is stopping me from buying this phone. its not that expensive also here at rs.21500. watchout for the software its not g8r...hangs
Each market is different. That is why most of company websites (nokia, SE, etc.), usually have a disclaimer that memory card size vary depending on location. As far as I can tell, the SE USA website has no specifics on which memory card is included. I would go back to the "Alfa" website and see how much memory it says is included.
I don't think contacting SE will do you any good. Including only 64MB memory makes perfect sense for sony, because then you have to buy more memory, so sony profits from it.
While I agree that it would probably be a good combination for both the cybershot and walkman features on one phone, I doubt SE will be combining the two any time soon. Each one is targeting to different groups of people. Also, the combination of the two features would probably cause SE to raise the price significantly on such a phone.
I bought ths piece 2 days back from ALfa in Andheri for 21400 INR. What I noticed was I got only 64 MB of Memory stick with it. though I have cn on some websites which says they are providing 256 MB Memorystick with this piece. I would like to know weather I have been cheated or is this all we get with this piece? Because the price is not justified for just 64 MB of memory + 64 internal memory.. really sad that with such a wonderful camera I need to think twice to click a foto :(
Sony Erricson people .. are you listening>?
I would be sending this mail to thm as well but just wanted all you guys to know abt this issue .. Please let me know if any one of you recvd > 64MB memorystick with this piece..
thx guys :)
Thank you guys. i took it to the service depot. They originally told me that it is software problem. After an hour they told me it is a hardware problem. They agreed to replace it. Replacement takes about 10days. with the lens cover opening, the lens will soon get enough dust covered or damaged. Thats the price for no fault of us. Wish sony ericsson comes out with a solution. Which seems unlikely.
Its the best camera phone...Nokia is no where close, but when will 3.2 megapixel along with Walkman goin 2 come????Waitng eagerly...rajnish
nice snaps at high res
phone tends to hang
is a bit heavy
bad bad video
cost me 21200 INR (rupees)
will trade it for N73 soon.
While you do have a point with the lens cover, which has already been pointed out in at least one of the preview articles I read about the K800/K790, the issue with phone could be software related.
Try updating the firmware.
I would say if that doesn't work, try exchanging it, even if you don't get your money back, it could be an issue with this specific phone, so getting another K790 might fix it.
So far, every other review by individuals I have read, including company reviews, like GSMArena, hasn't brought up any kind of issue like this on the K800 and K790.
