luis, 24 Jan 2009I have seen that review some weeks ago and I have read it very well (complete), you must notic... moreit's true that Xpress Music phones gives better audio frequancy response than Walkman or any other SE phones Nokia XM phones like 5800(currently best music phone available in Nokia) because they are using an in-built DSP chip.. BUT Walkman phones produses much better BASS durring music playback , the BASS prodused durring music playback is almost equal to a Dolby Surround BASS ! no other phone except SE Walkman or Xperia X1 can produse it..... actually Xperia X1 is the best music phone in SE , it produses even better music quality than Walkman phones !!!

eb, 28 Jan 2009Where i can see pics of that phone? ThanksSorry no pix... but i 4got to mention it also has WIFI / QuickOffice reader / Adobe PDF / ZIP / Dictionary / Radio ect... it does not have Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate... the phone is gr8 but still this is the prototype, so many things may change in the final version...
I have now in my hands the upcoming more advanced new XM mobile. the 5630 XM. it has dedicated music keys / a larger display / runs on S60 not S40 / 3.2 MP camera dual flash / micro SD slot / front camera / 3.5 mm jack input / micro USB...
i wonder why GSMARENA didnt say anything about it yet...
the phone is a prototype the one in my hands...
The Rokr series from Motorola outperform these (5130 & 5220) in terms of sound quality and clarity. I know because I had a z6 and now have a 5220. The only issue was the fact that my z6 fell apart, literally.
M p, 25 Jan 2009This 5130xm phone available before 20th feb. At low price phonRealy? Do U sure 100%? Reply for me soon! Because I want to buy this phone!
the difference with 5220 is: battery type & memory support, I hope this phone work faster than 5220 since flash wallpaper move slower on 5220 than 5310.

how about Sony Ericsson W610 vs. this in terms of music quality and picture quality? who wins? this or SE W610
hate nokia ... price simultaneously goes down ... better bought in the following day because it's cheaper than today ... ughh nokia's prices noticeably goes down.. the following day..
You can see in that review as well that W980 has some issues with music quality like exagerated noise. Even worse some player functions can't be deactivated. That generates unnatural sound which some people like but most other people don't like. So is a love it or hate it in music department.
rapter, 23 Jan 2009OK to people who don't like to belive GSM arena reviews then go to www.mobile-reviews.com and ... moreI have seen that review some weeks ago and I have read it very well (complete), you must notice that Sony Ericsson W980 fares way worse than Nokia 5610 in the first test (in the first test people were unable to watch the phones, they only were able to put the earphones and listen to music). The another results below that chart were biased because in the second test people were watching the phones, so because W980 was prettier they gave it better points than 5610.
That's the fact, Walkmans are worse in music quality than XM. Period
