Why does this phone have such a high rating? How is it different from the G705, other than the design?
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2008its just a big big lie.

2. Xperia is not ... moreYes G900 is cancelled, if you just bought it then your just helping them clear out the excess stock.
They are no longer making any new ones.

So music quality, great headphones, excellent bass(nowhere to be found on so-called music phones with 3.5mm jack)is not worth at all? All that matters is that a phone must have a 3.5mm jack otherwise its useless. And how long is that wire? 50-60 feet?? come on...don't be stubborn..its actually no problem at all, you are just trying to make it.
This isn't a MUSIC phone if it doesn't have 3.5mm audio jacks. PLAIN AND SIMPLE, I have a w810 but using it as a music player over an actual player is useless because you end up having to carry that retarded conversion cable with you everywhere. And it is also long so when you use other headphones other than the ones SE provides you end up with a wire that it incredibly long and inconvenient.
All I can say is wow! This phone just could be the very next step towards the ultimate Walkman. I mean look at the specs on this thing! Should've had Infared though...

Am I missing something here?? You just purchase the mobile, everything comes WITH it...DCU-Cable is included IN the box. Are you really a SE user?I am getting suspicious here.
Again, why do you keep saying that we have to purchase adopter for using our own headphones? I have told you that you CAN plug your own headphones without purchasing any adopter(except some low end older sets which I think don't have this option). Are you not listening to me??You don't have to purchase ANYTHING..everything is IN the box with your set. The same cable that connects SE headphones to the mobile can be used to connect your own headphones, how hard is it to understand?
All it proves that you can't even find the place to plug-in your headphones and how lame is that??I don't mean to offend you but your objection about 3.5mm jack is the only thing that I find silly here.

1. G900 is not cancelled (i bought it from plemix)
2. Xperia is not made from HTC and we all know that
3. None of SE phones are made from Sagem (how is possible a weak Sagem to produce phones for such a big name such is SE)
4. How do you know that this phone will be a fail ???
NOW I WILL CALL YOU "THE LIAR"

Until a model is not released Se puts lot of efford to keep the image up - PR staff monitor websites.
Of course, once the phone released the PR is less effective: ex. G900, W890 etc. released for high price and now (after few months) th e phones do not sell 50%!!! of the initial price.
G900 is already cancelled!
Same thing will happen with X1, W705 etc.
SE can not keep up with the new tech and more importantly unable to manufacture reliable phones recently!
X1 is made by HTC !!!!
and some of the other SE phones made by Sagem!!!!

There is a good reason why Xpress Music phones and ROKR phones carry a standard 3.5mm jack. There is a good reason why it is good for a phone to carry microSD cards (why did the X1 do it?) There is a good reason why it is good for a phone to use a charging microUSB port.
But Sony wants to make you buy Sony crap. DCU-60 cables and chargers, MS cards, and silly headphone adapters. Stuff gets damaged and lost and I do not want to be up a creek cuz I need a "special" adapter to listen to music on my music phone. It is really a silly cop out to say the adapter is fine and one does not need a 3.5mm port. At the end of the day a W705 with a 3.5mm jack is better than a W705 without one.
And how on earth did this phone get a 9.2 in features and performance? So this has more features than the N series phones? That is fanboyism. This from a SE owner.

I actually prefer the fast port as whenever I plug in my usb my mobile also starts charging, isn't it nice? Why are you people so lazy? How much effort it does take?
it could be a next se best seller as it has wifi, 4gb card, and its a walkman

Memory Sticks are 5 times the price of SD cards and if I ever damage or lose that adapter I am screwed.
If you are a music phone for crying out loud give us a standard 3.5mm jack on the phone. When I owned a ROKR E2 I could plug my phone into computer speakers and really listen to some music without having to worry about carrying around an adapter.

Now thats call a premium walkman phone
LWK, 07 Nov 2008This unit will be a success. It looks quite promising from every aspect.Someone interested in this phone??I have 13 units and all are very cheap.
You can reach me at mail above.
I think that this phone is great, because I don't need GPS at all, and this phone even better with HSPA & Wi-Fi . ALso, there is 4gigs M2 inside , right?
I am getting sooo much tired of these stupid comments about 3.5m jack, who the hell needs it?I am a HARDCORE music fan and music is my life but I never needed one. The headset that comes with SE phone is brilliant, what kind of people always keep crying for this bullsh*t?
If you are so eager to use your own headset then you CAN and you don't have to buy anything seperately, all walkman phones has the option to plug-in your own headset, if all these people are not blind then I wonder why don't they see it??
lately SE became a slider phone producer , i loved more the candy bar ones , but this one is as beautiful as the previous ones
