It's not the design that puts me off, it's the colour scheme...red and blue just don't go together imo.
For the link, make sure there is no space after the ".../sonyeric" as it is an error.. so it should say
BEFORE YOU POST ABOUT THIS PHONE'S DESIGN
Sheesh... what's the use of placing the links when no one bothers to look at it?..
AS for my rating:
7-the front is alright, just that the back is ugly
9-it has everything the k700 has minus bluetooth, and this will be priced at about 200euros...
8-it's not a high end phone, but does have new stuff, only lacks larger memory and nicer screen (mind you, 128x160 64k TFT is good for a phone this price)
Perhaps they will market it as a phone for minors - the way I see it the only possible way SE would consider such a ugly design was to cut costs and sell it to a much more younger audience. Pre-pay perhaps for children?
this phone irritates me. It's horrible and i should say sony ericsson rushed to ease competition but it seems they have made a big mistake in doing so. They are probably lagging behind now. I think they should have taken more time in creating a more attracrive design and then this ugly duckling would have been a cracker. Maybe it's just the color (blue) and the vodafone red which don't coincide or it's just me being too picky. But then this phone ain't so bad. It's features are rather modern and updated. I would buy this phone for convenience not for fashion. Anyway, it's just a thought from me, the mystichrome
Hey, the design so similar to K700, 'cept that this one is uglier and worse.
The retail price will justify though.
F500i is the Vodafone model, which yes, looks terrible...
The K500i on the other hand looks MUCH better. Links are as following.
And for a lower range phone, it's very good. 10mb, vga, IR, 3d Java, Mp3....
looks good.. a poor man's K700. Current prices of the K700 is too high to be justified where i live. Hopefully, this ones gonna be released for around U$D200-250
