i just love Sony Ericsson ;
1. photo id for call/sms
2. guarantee good sound system
3. superb easy UI
4. stable software
5. autofocus is a must have
like.no.other . . .
i totally agree with you! the price of this W900i is outrageous! no wonder the ratings are not that high compared with other models!
it would have been better if it has exchangeable covers.
excuse me, but i did not use the link you provided "www.webopaedia.com", i got it from a better source.
don't always believe others who says that W900i supports .wma & .wmv, i think they're just saying it juz to big up their beloved brand eventhough its not true that it can play .wma & .wmv files! as what i said before, you can check out the white paper of W900i and see who's telling the truth about .wma & .wmv compatibility.
i don't want you to be another victim of wrong info, like what some dude said about who had the first auto-focus function on a mobile phone.. : )
$900 for a phone?!
-I don't care whether it has 30/fps video mode! (this mode is included in all new digital cameras free of charge!)
-I don't care whether it has B.S. video calling (video calling quality on today's UMTS is horrible)
-I don't care if it has 2mp camera
without even 2x optical zoom (what?!)
Be mature and don't waste your money!
For $900 you can buy:
1) Nokia 6170
2)Panasonic's fx9 very slim pocket digital camera, with 6mp resolution and mega optical image stabilization!
3)256 md SD memory card
4)High quality Samsung's 1GB music & Movie Player (MP3 player)
well after reading most of what's going on here ...
my phone will be SE W900 for sure :)) i am not going for nokia crap anymore!! and for the price thing ...
i've payed lots for nokia phones and its juss not woth it . so why not pay it this time for something different that even better ?
viperkid- i think you switched some of your WLAN info around
TheOneDazz-viperkid got some of his info(on Wlan) from my links. he uses searches to find out his info like we all do.
mXtr(no name)+all- it does not have a 2,5mm jack. it only has a 3,5mm jack.it also does support tv out through its fast port and data accesories
mXtr (no name):
that depends on you.
W900 has 76,800 dots of image size with 30 fps it means that W900's video size is smaller and but will look smoother when viewed on a TV/PC screen than N90's captured/playback video. however, N90 has 101,376 dots of image size with 15 fps it means N90's video size is bigger but will look less smoother due to its fewer fps than W900. one aspect is better than the other, so i guess it's hard to know which one has better video.. as what i said it depends on you, if you like bigger videos go for Nokia, if u want smoother looking videos go for Sony Ericsson. but compare w900 with N80, that's a different story cuz N80's fps is still tentative to date.
yeah this is quite cool:
NetFront 3.3 – an HTML browser which supports a complete web standard suite
2 nameless as far as i no it does support a 2.5 mm jack dis subject az bin brought up b4 however i dun tink it az t.v output
forgot to ask does it have a 2.5mm audio jack by any chance? if so this would be awesome and is there any way to play your videos from this through to the tv? thanks. btw the battery life sounds awesome compared to the 3hrs on the nokia n80.
i take it that the QVGA video recorder on this is better than CIF on the Nokias? if so excellent i might plan on buying this for the camera and video recorder as well as the music features. cool to see that this has a HTML browser too.
yes, another benefit from WLAN! :)
more info about Wireless LAN:
Versions of WLAN:
802.11b: the most common type of WLAN today, operating in the 2.4GHz band. top transfer speed is 11 Mbps.
802.11g: also operates at 2.4GHz, but transports data over improved and faster protocols. top transfer speed is 54 Mbps.
802.11a: operates at 5GHz. uses the same protocols as 802.11g. top transfer speed is 54 Mbps.
gaurav- WLAN stands for Wireless Local area Netork. this means that you can share information between phones that have this function. the transfer speeds are faster(depending on the electronic appliance that you are usin) at :
2Mbps @2.4GHz(using FHSS or DSSS)
54Mbps@5GHz (using OFDM)
and 11Mbps@ 2.4 GHZ (using only DSSS)
note:these figures arenot representative of the phones direct speed. this figures werefound at www. webopaedia.com, and rather refer to the speeds between base sites and WLAN compliant devices
which is 6 times faster than Bluetooth.
a wireless LAN or WLAN is a wireless local area network that uses radio waves as its carrier: the last link with the users is wireless, to give a network/internet connection to all users in the surrounding area. areas may range from a single room to an entire campus. the backbone network usually uses cables, with one or more wireless access points connecting the wireless users to the wired network.
you can use it by:
for example ur on a hot spot like a cyber mall, coffee shops, etc (with WLAN) you can simply use ur device such as N80 to connect to their network (which has an internet connection) and surf the net (usually) free of charge in ur N80 (as i may say) :)
if your phone does not support WLAN like W900i, (i'll make a situation) for example you and your friend are having a coffee (at starbucks, usually they have WLAN) you have W900 and ur friend got N80, your friend can surf the net for free using the coffee shop's WLAN (usually free) as long as both of you are in the vicinity while you having W900, couldn't help but stare at your friend surf the net all he wants, unless you're going to use your own network to connect via GPRS to surf the net, which will cost you some money!
W900 does NOT support .wmv & .wma file formats. here are the file formats W900 supports:
AAC, AAC+, MP3 (192 kbit/s for local playback), MP4, M4A, 3GP, AMR, WAV/WAVE, G-MIDI (level 1 with 40 voices polyphony), Real 8, I-melody, E-melody, AMR-NB, RHZ & XMF
(but on page 17 of the white paper, it has 72 polyphonic voices)
Video (including audio part):
-MP4 (video: MPEG4, audio: AAC or AMR)
-3GP (video: MPEG4 or H.263,audio:AAC or AMR)
all of the specs are from the white paper (page 30) of W900 (R1A) Oct 21, 2005 Edition. if you're sceptical about what i just posted in here, you can check out:
and download W900i's white paper, and see for yourself. hope i helped.. :)
what is WLAN IN n80?? what its use ?? what will be loss as it is not in w900???
AHM- what i think they are trying to say is that this phone is so good that there is no real competition for it (at nokia) besides maybe the smartphones
blank-this phone supports all of that and AAC, AAC+, and mpeg4
Wolverine if you really want to sacrifice form over function, then be our guests
TheOneDazz- of course. if you remember it had its press release there so it will be one of the first countries to receive it.
