release date confirmed in uk as 21st of july 2007
starting to like this phone now :] but still need to know if the camera is any good and the volume of the speakers
man this phone looks so nice.. i like the blue one makes is unique stand to other phone. SE should keep that blue for other Walkman series.. but the one thing i don't like is lack of auto focus.. that is a must features it really make the diffrence in a shoot. i got the W810 simply the best.. no problems what so ever. well ill wait till 4th quarter see whats Se going to bring ...
good fone but se need to do something better with thier fones ... all d same functions or 2mp . shouldnt happen to a company like se
It's a walkman phone, it should be able to play mpeg-4s like the other walkman phones.
da specifications doesnt say ne thing abt movie playbacks.is it supported or not
WHEN IS THIS OUT?
I live in Spain but hav ebought some mobiles in ebay form eeuu before, in Spain it is always too late and TOO expensive
The thing about auto focus...
Some phones have a special sensor to do a digital still autofocus. It works 60% of the time. Which still leaves a large gap where if you move your hand too fast, or move too quickly, the picture will come out blurry.
But otherwise, on moving lens or sensitive lens cameras on phones, notoriously from SE, they are of poor quality when there is movement from the object in view, or the hand of the photographer, because there is no additional sensor, or AF to take care of the lens distancing.
Motorola has over come that with sensors near their cameras and before/after shutter image rebuffering when the pictures are being taken.
Nokia has lenses that are less sensitive without damaging any image quality too roughly, but the image quality is still noticible and are the worst if not a smartphone without AF.
Motorola lies with 2st place in my judgement, and SE is first with their AF cameras, but MOTO and SE are tied for first if they both don't have AF.
This phone is sooo cool.. I wish i could have this phone someday.. I really love it..
but hey dude, think about the CLIE segments. isn't it gone already right? so it gives way to M/P-Series that's why they have the UIQ as their ownership already. and AFAIK, Sony Corp. loves to make hybrids like the handycams with 4Mp resolutions, Cybershots with Handycam features(M1/M2) and even Clie PDAs have features seen in VAIOs so will it hurt Sony if SE will make Hybrid phones too?
Sony ericsson don't develop much on their phone maybe because the company gives way to Sony. Imagine if sony ericsson would release a handy cam phone or a 5 megapixel camera- then there will be no one to buy Sony handy cams and Sony cybershot. Nokia is independent so they have the guts to upgrade their phones......
we are being robbed as out comes a new fone in any make with all the same hardware/software and because new fone it comes out at £300 then drops to 250 quid then 220 quid etc and they all do this..they are all price fixing which is illegal,,you never see it at 288 quid or 267quid som whee else its a stated price wat they pick out the air because most fones are made below £18 the rest is justed added on,,,you wait till the next big nokia or s/e come out it will be 350 or 400 and everywhere you go its the same
want to waste your money go for this mobile .because this mobile is same as w800i which now u can get for less then £80 new if u look around same 2 mp camera mp3 this mobile not even 3g sony grow up put more features in like n95 and stop robing us please
just one more thing ,,,,make qcif 15 fps video recording a thing of the past for goodness sake
thats wats spoiling the last s/e fones just out or coming out is lack of auto focus,,Just had the w880 out and is a superb fone but dont ask me how i missed that it had no auto focus so exchanged for k800i..OK it not the end of world but now i will not go back to ANY fone withpout auto focus its just a neccessity now as is the quarte vga screen..REmember the t610 how did we use it then we just did but s/e should not copy nokia just churning out mobile after mobile to fill their portfolio they should concentrate on
1) A camcorder type fone with just normal music player but full of video orientated features(handycam) 2)intrduce a selection of series 60 phones
3)a set of small fones in the cybershot range
4)A monster of a beast with the whole lot in.
I am not a dreamer but s/e needs fones to fill these gaps but the last set of fones are just rehashes of the same thing..I would also like to add that sony is renowned for quality and small high spec electronics ( i was buying their megabass ghetto blasters 22 years ago and they were good quality and high spec but small) and along with a good fone manufacture ericsson and sony doing quality mobiles themselves should leave the bandwagon and just come up with something unque that will blow us all away...So in short s/e stop for i while churning out wat all others are doing and sit down and do what youve done in past and bring out feature full,, high quality high spec gadget mobiles that i know you can do and get back up that leader board where i personnelly think you should be,,and you think you should be.
Things you have at you disposal are cybershot,,handycam,,walkman,,1.9 inch qvga screen (for outer screen on clamshell perhaps),,years of experiance,,3 huge game consoles (could you bring that to mobile and have tv output)also maybe you could split from ericsson and just be sony again then you call all the shots ???
This phone is to be released Stateside first (USA). The lighting on the phone really rocks as you slide it up and it is a great phone for all the fat people out there because it comes with a built in pedometer!!!
