oh just to mention, gsmarena has gotten the specs for this phone wrong. The screen resolution is meant to be QVGA, not the ancient 176X220. This is one little great mid-entry phone.
the GPS appears to be only activated when the new earpiece that comes with this phone is plugged in.... how to use gps when u forgot to bring the earpiece.... quite inconvenient
people or specifically nokia fans bash this phone due to the fact that it's a copy of K618,W660 an bla bla. this thread had so many pointless and crap opinions. if you simply don't like it then stare at you respective sites. i may think you(haters) are jelous about the HGE-100 capability by which no other brand has come to offer GPS and Stereo headset + 3.5mm jack in one. and this reproduced model of the same feature yet in different design helps SE to top out their sales as people have different tastes. even samsung, nokia and motorola do this then why the smaller SE won't?
Looks like Sony Ericsson will be jumping aboard the GPS bandwagon with its K530 handset. This GPS navigation capable cellphone is the first from Sony Ericsson's stable to do so, boasting full point-to-point navigation. Not only do you get help in knowing where to go, the K530 also delivers weather forecasts for your current location if the need arises. The K530 is also supports 3G connectivity, letting your surf the Internet and catch up on the latest news via a RSS reader. Other features include a 2 megapixel camera, 16MB of internal memory, and a Memory Stick Micro memory card slot. There is no word on pricing details, but the K530 will
ive read on other websites that this phone has GPS, is that true? if so, how come its not listed at feature?
its similar to k550 n k750 but less cam pixel than k750...but 3G
what will be the price in India..
If price is below k750..it will be nice...
no difference with w660.but its a K series!!boooo!!se should've done better!
great looking, good camera and 3G- though why no irda? useful for connecting to my brothers phone w/out bluetooth...shame SE, this could have been a winner
Since this is always mentioned in line with the HGE-100, does that mean the HGE-100 comes with the phone?
Nah It Not Worth IT ... Same Looking W810i. Just REdid The Paint Work. I Bet The REndering Engine IS Same .. And U Can Use W810i SOftware On This Phone
this is phone is hype, it has the gps headset that comes with it, that can make the phone gps enabled.
