I just got this phone yesterday, i am pleased with it. The music quality is as good as presumed, colour is also beautiful. It's lightweight and the music-on-top does not lag much. Its a great phone!
But i have little complaints. The media manager does not allow me to organise tracks uploaded easily...and there are little errors here n there... but well, its still good. I highly recommend this phone for music-lovers!!! and of cus, clam-shell lovers!!

I have the W980 a month ago, and I really like this phone, I was thinking mmm the cam is bad but not its good, what more?? its a cell phone!! the sound is just fav!!! the cell is pretty cool! I recommend it A+++ SE!
You'll find the phone is $899 in NZ actually. The price was lowered before release.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970price value for money? I don't think so because all are still new phones. E66 has more features but w980 has better design and much better music quality.

Quik, 20 Nov 2008I wanna ask for those who have this phone. Which mode do you prefer when listening to music (... moreIt's up to the song's bitrate: try no stereo widening for better bass with over a 160 Kbps song,,eg: i used them on anime genre songs n it's awesome.stereo widening works well on phone's speaker
In nz well sell the phone for $999 in our stores. thats just a handset

I go to work in the morning with fully charged battery and in the afternoon when finishing work I can not call a taxi because the phone has switched off. Is there any long life battery I couldput in my phone? Thanks.
so does this handset broadcast your music over FM so that you can pick it up on your car/home stereo?
