The handset comes with about 40 Mb of inbuilt memory, which can be used to store both personal data and applications. Behind the hatch sits the double-purpose slot for MS M2 or MicroSD memory cards. It is the first time when the company offers a choice between M2 cards, utilized by various Sony-branded gadgets or the previous handsets, or slightly cheaper microSD units. The price tags of these two memory card types are almost identical, so are their abilities. So it all boils down to personal preferences and having certain memory cards at hand. Sony Ericsson makes a good statement with this move, as other makers force owners of their handsets to use only one specific card type.
In terms of physical design, this is a two-way socket, meaning that M2 cards are inserted with contacts facing you, while in case with microSD, contacts are going inside the slot. Obviously, you can have both cards installed at a time – you simply won’t cram them into the socket. The memory expansion slot is hot-swappable, which allows you to change cards on a working device regardless of type.
you are right 45mh, you don't say the 2 at the same time, mea culpa, you just say this:
put those 2 8GB""+""4GB IN the K850i it's 11GB
Man, I dunno if its Media player version is 3.0
supports as well MegaBass™ and of course, the LOUDSPEAKER should be "LOUD", I hated my K800 for its weak loudspeaker :(
i never said both at the same time. it's not like someone listens to 8gb of music a day. both as in swap.
o and sugar: stop going to n95 post and say that this one is better. because n95 and k850 are diferen. if you need a camera you can say that k850 is better. but if you need an smartphone whit wifi. you can say n95 is better.
choose the phone you need and stop saying this is better or that is better
to sugar: you only can have 1 memory card at time you can't have 2
if it's only symbian, there might be some speculations.. but this dummy..
This can be Better then N95 8GB
first it has 2 Memory Slot's !
Sony M2 will go up to 8GB
microSD goes up to 4GB
put those 2 8GB+4GB in the K850i it's 11GB !
So Now you have a K850i 11GB !
k850i cooler lookin than the n95 but no biggie i'm gonna get tha n95 8 gig for ma dad and get this for ma self and swith between the 2.u knw why cuz this a bad ass camera and the n95 is a bad ass smart phone even if symbian is a little "touchy" atleast u get gps and third party apps the accelerometer i can do without and mayb better vid quality, oh and b4 i forget wi fi wud make this fone a keeper but until somebody makes "the" perfect phone i guess i just gonna have to keep switchin with ma dad. l8r
I love SE, but I think people should get the K850 because they just released a 8gb card for SE phones, so 8gb card and 5mp phone would be similar to n95. But SE makes better camera and it would have longer battery life. Plus, this phone supports SD card slot also, so that would make it 8gb + 4gb.
and remember nokia construction sux, like SLIDERS. and yes the e65 have a good slider for like 3 weeks, then is like others
nokia= great multimedia phones, whit 9999bugs and bad construction
and in my n91 whit 220mhz and 9.1 i have brothers in arms, so what?
to the person down "to mike": do you have a nokia???
people dont care about 9.2 or 369mhz, there still are BUGS in the software, i have a n91 whit bugs, and my sys, have a nokia n76 whit 9.2 and 330 or something like that and it's full of bugs!!!
and yes they both have the lastes firmware
ok yes most of symbian are crap
but now there is os 9.2 with 369 mhz proc
realy good speed and you can install cool symbian games like brother in arms
phones are n81 ,5700 6290, navigator
There we go, I was wondering where all the SE-fans were. I mean, all the N-fanboys came in here trying to support their brick.
I would still buy this phone if I knew it was the very best, but it's not the best! Well, not for long, because I'm confident that with this new A200 UI, they'll come out with a better phone, running this new UI with both K series quality and W(alkman) series performance. I think I'll wait for the next series of phones to come out, then decide which one to get.
sorry i cant express my feelings
about this damn good phone .I have no words to express THE BEST THINGH ABOUT THIS PHONE.
Hey guys this phone will avalible soon I found its contents at SE website so be first to buy one!
Keep it up!
I LIKE NOKIA PHONES OVER SONY BUT:
This k850 is definitely much better than
N95 $699! (street price) COMING SOON SYMBIAN SMART GARBAGE!
-K850 HAS A REAL 5MP CAMERA (not a cheap sensor, plus xenon flush) and without Smbyan Garbage!
-Nokia N95 has cheap sensor, no xenon and plus ne model's favorite Symbian Garbage oerating system (every f---ng review you read about Symbian Phones- all have slow software or some issues wit it)
