hey tony i am in canada and i got the phone for free with no contract extention.
Awesome phone, the LEDs that run along the outside of the slide have some sort of ambi-light feature when you have certain themes active.
Sexy looking phone with all top features.
ooh i also noticed how much the american's get creamed for their contracts! $149.99 on 3 year contract? oooouuuch!
jeez we in the uk get it for free on a 1 year contract or if we go 18 months we get £180 back from certain highstreet retailers! (cpw)
specs wise, the W910 is better. looks will depend on person to person. W580 looks more funky and the W910 is more elegant :)
is this phone loud? im deciding to get SE w880 or w850 orthis one w580. can anyone tell me which phone is louder?. E-mail me or reply.
Can someone please confirm if this phone has 12mb or 16-18mb? i know its not much of a difference but still :P lemme know :D
Hey every1, just saw the phone..It is REALLY, thin, but the buttons are so close together!!
seems like s500 has keypad cracking problems, what about w580? any problems with the keypad? is it hard to use becuz i am hardcore texter.
how does the no auto-focus affect it's quality of photos.
W580 could compete with 810i caz no other companies can compete with sony walkman phones.
Will be one of the best phones Apple should be shivering by this time. .
did w580i has the light effect when playing the music with walkman player? and can the theme change into like psp's menu?
alright, im just about to purchase this amazing phone, but im confused in what color...black or grey?? any opinions??
Current price August 9th 2007 is $299.99 with no contract and $149.99 with 3 year contract.
jake, you can check if it has that and whatever else you want by going to http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=au&lc=en&ver=4000&template=pip1&zone=pp&pid=10856 and clicking "try the phone".
does this phone have an equaliser?? not the display one, but the one with which i can manually set the bass, treble etc. just like the one in W800?
the price shouldn't drop any further any time soon; Sony knows if the price goes down any more, no one would buy an s500 if they could get this for almost the same price... they don't want to compete against themselves.
i'm also curious where you found it for 310.
Rogers now has this phone in Canada.... just ordered mine today so will update when UPS shows up. Question.. don't know much about bluetooth but the wireless stereo idea interests me and I'm thinking about picking something up in anticipaton of the big day.
What am I looking for? Are the Sony ones good or are there better out there? If better, why? Thx.
