It is certainly not a poor man's w800. It's not a matter of whether people can afford the step-up, it's that some want a more basic style phone. In my opinion, the is simple, sleek, and looks just as nice as any other Walkman phone that would cost more. I'd definitely consider this phone.
SE now uses the Memory Stick Micro because it is there new product which is intended for cell phones only. It was announced a while back that they'd use this new format on all there upcoming models. They were not doing well on sales on their Memory Stick/ Duo products so they needed to make money by introducing a newer product, the Micro.
no bluetooth nokia 6151 is kind off better than this then....if only it had memoory stick pro duo mem card .and bluetooth maybe then they can get sales......nokia is stil ahead in terms of ranks and sales....sonyerricson comes in 3rd place ..samsung 2nd ...nokia 1st place in ranks and sales....
yeah i agree with you guys ... bluetooth is a must ! and a megapixel camera would have been great .
If its cheap below Rs 7000(pak)i'll buy it. Otherwise i guess i'll be skipping this model. Hopefully SE will come out with a W200i which will include bluetooth, then im definately gonna buy the phone .
some people are of the opinion that this phone sucks, but what they fail to realise is that not everyone can afford an expenive w810 or a w850. this phone is perfect for anyone who has a small budget.
this is the walkman version of the k310. it is crap and doesnt even have bluetooth.
this a walkman phone which everyone can buy i think it will work with 1 gb and i dont know why is sony ericsson using memory stick micro in this phone when it is so costly the phone i think will not cost more than rs 8000 in india and 256 mb memory card without bill cost rs 1400
i am hoping that this year SE will overtake nokia and all of the other brands !!!
SE might come up with great units this year its not too late for SE !!
so watch out !!
sony ericsson always does great when it comes to quality and music functionality !!! the only thing that is not good is that they are always making fones that has no BT like w200 and k300 !! if w200 have BT it will be one of the most affordable complete fone in the market !!
Where are the big models? SE has been producing low-end for too long now, its not really keeping up with the big guys...
A bit disappointed...
looks cool, nice and small, IPOD killer(anyway samsung now reigns in MP3 player features in the market after beating IPOD nano in cnet.com)
*reasons to buy this phone other than IPOD nano(only for those Mp3 addicts!)
1st:has camera,infrared,good hearphones(with bass reflex!) with video capability and larger has memory card slot up to 1Gb at the moment(though nano has 8gb already)
SE does it's job very well in conquering the mass market for music addict people!!!(mostly music addicts are budget concious, now SonyE to the rescue!) btw. when will nokia learn that having so many features only increases it's popularity but not users?:-D
If the price is good you could buy one of these and not an ipod nano,stick a decent size card in it and you have all you need, i mean what the hell else does an ipod do apart from play music.
AT LAST!!!!!!! i can finaly afford a walkman mobile....
basic features BIG on the music side!!!!!
