Hi there walkman phone Loyalists!! There's no question about the great features of this budget music phone! I have this one. It has all the up-side In it..from music player to camera functions((though, only VGA.)). The only downside I've obviously noticed & really dislike 'bout w200i is that, SE-Walkman designers did not put some "cool-design" around/in the circle form of the VGA-camera at the back?? It's so so sad & lonely...I mean, designing a great budget music phone is suppose to be excitement!! It's suppose to be a happy phone?!It's suppose to be fun!((considering the beautiful cut-design of w200i)) That's why I gave the unit to my Girlfriend. In fairness, This is a great budget music phone.
W200 is too great for cheap phone.I didn't expect will hear great sound,but is too good.it's make me loyal with SE product.
hey guys got this phone yesterday. quite satisfied with the performance for the money which i paid but not as great as w550. i have w550, w610 , w 960 and now this little baby. i found w550 to be the best followed by w960 and then w610 & w200. infact 610 & 200 both are same through hpm 70 earpiece. i heard a lot about w610 megabass but finally when i bought it by myself i found it to be worse. may be my w610 is defective(software upgraded twice), bass and megabass both are almost same unlike w550 where one can make out the difference clearly. W200 is about 50 % of the w550 megabass according to my opinion. now the best part of w200. its grey in colour and i got mps-70 speaker free(in india-kolkata rs-4169 about 95 us$) along with it and its working great with w200i. cheers !!! guys note down nokia music solutions are no where around walkmans believe me except n70 with power mp3 player through hpm-70.Yeah one more thing i wanna add about hpm-64 its very good for those guys who doesn't like in-ear type headphone. yeah hpm-64 handles bass frequencies quite nicely i mean you can really feel the thump. and i tried using creative ep630 headphone with w200i and believe me guys its comparable with ipods...
Mark, 09 Oct 2008Hey, does this phone have a radio recorder & what is the meaning of RDS? CAN U PLEASE RESPONSEThere is no radio recorder on the W200i.
RDS = Radio Data System
A description can be found on Wikipedia.org.
If you have not come across RDS, then you are perhaps in a country where RDS is not operated from your FM radio stations.
I bought this great phone last week and am satisfied with it. But, its skipping parts of MP3 tracks at 5-6 places irrespective of whether it is placed in the Internal Memory or on the memory card...What do I do?

W200i is the best low budget music player around,try to compare it to other low end music phones in my opinion it beats a 5310 xpress music in terms of music quality..NOthing can BEAT MEGABASS Period.
