Great phone but in Malaysia, it is RM680 which makes it between the 5200(RM520) and the 5300(RM720). Maybe for this price, SE should upgrage the memory card to 512mb at least .
p.s. 5300 comes wuth 1gb memory card
hey hey....a walkman fone without blue tooth..can u believe that? i think sony ericsson people are going mad or some thing..or they just are exploiting people...
i work in mobile shop egypt and i think it is better than e250 and 6085
. good quality for the battery good sound , low quality for cam but i think the camer useless for who search about music , low price ( realy buy it )
chill down guys,
within a month this will go down to Rs.6500 n india. and in 3-4 months it will touch Rs.6000 mark.
at Rs.6000 it will be best buy.
I had been waiting for this phone since January when SE had announced it. But it really upsets me after knowing its price. Why SE has announced it as a low budget phone? Value Rs. 7200 is called low budget???? Only "SE crazy" will buy this. If SE will not drop the price right now (which they will have to in next month), then SE will lose a number of people whom will not turn again to W200 after 1 month. Think and progress, SE !!!
I just bought this phone and I can say that it is great value for the money! I had Nokia 5300 before and that phone never sounded as great as this W200 does! Great music quality!
ok guys w200i is here and costs rs7000/-...... for nothing. y on hell should this cost 7000+. well i m not going to buy this heck.
i am happy to say that the phone has entered into the local markets. well the phone is great. nice design, simplicity, upgradable, large keypad, comparitevely large screen, user friendly, nice colour,everything is good.. but the only thing that annoys me is its price 7200/- and w300i is 8200/-. now one compares w200i to w300i and w300i is absolutly not a phone for every one and defenitly not a budget phone. the company said that w200i is a phone for everyone indicating it as a budget phone, then y 7200/-. its ridiculus. no blue tooth, not tft, different 'w'series ear phones, no edge. the price factor has turned me down from buying w200i. the price is reasonable around 6000/- otherwise its crazy to buy a w200i.
How would you compare this phone with the Samsung E250, Nokia 5200, Motorola V360?
7800rs .... is too much... it should be in between 6500-7000rs .. than its worth.. otherwise by putting 2000rs people will buy k550i...
Yes the price will certainly drop down in pakistan sooner or later...ova here prices of new fones go down drastically...this fone will be worth around 8000Rs within a month or so....
good news for indians
w200i is lauched in india with price tag of rs.7800
well this is a WALKMAN phone which are all highly priced anyway sooo in pakistan im sure the price will drop.it has to.becuase here in the UK the new SE W610i started at the price of £200 now its £150 so im sure the price wil drop down in pakistan to!?.
honey its just bigging of fone this will drop to 6k range
it sounds fabulous
very very very nice fone for low budget
if it had BLUETOOTH
its was far better than 5200
I recommend all pakistanis don't ever think about buying this damn w200 it is costing 9900 for nothing
1 indian rupee equals to 1.4 pakistani rupees....here in pakistan, the W200 is for 9800PKR...tht converts to somethng around 6880INR....and you can get a brand new K750i for 10,000 PKR....anyways, the point is this fone is too bloody expensive for these kinda specs...id rather buy a samsung E250; Bluetooth, card slot, FM, etc (m not a big Samsung fan) than this fone...i really used to like SE but iv now come to realize tht its all show and no go...definitly NO GO...my opinion: If ur in pakistan, dnt waste ur money on this fone...it aint worth it...iv used various fones in the past, samsung, siemens, nokia, sonyericsson....the most dissatisfied iv ever been with a fone is from a SE...the software really really sucks....hangs a lot, etc.....siemens fones are the best...bulletproof fones...bulletproof software...too bad they're not making any new ones...
