Is W700 Taiwanese version of W800? It ain't look so charm because of same looking. :)
glad to see someone agrees! lol. thanks man
and what you said is exactly right about the Razr
this doesnt look bad at all!! who cares if it's a w800 chassis... i figured it would just be cheaper :)
And lets be honest, i think the w600 , w550 don't look good. And guys in life if something works, you stick with it. The design for the w800 is the best i've seen so why change it,
Look at the razr, That phone is about 50% of motorola's income, now if ur head of motorola are you really going to alter that design? NOpe
DJblakel we need more people like you. Isn't it obvious that the W800 was a hit phone , but i hear people say the didn't like the orange and the phone is somewhat price. So hmm if ur sony why not expand marketshare by creating the a cheaper walkman phone, All you do is reduce the memory card take out the autofocus and wah lah, basically a walkman W800 for 100 dollars or so less
please only post once
as i said. the reason why it is being released again is because of how well it is selling (K750i and w800i)
it is being re released because.
upgraded design. some people did not like the look for the white and orange theme. this theme is alot more "cleaner" looking and wil attract new buyers. More buyers the better for SE, dont you think?
it has an upgraded MP3 firmware. it is more stable than the w800 and 750. better organisation design will result in less crashes/confusion on MP3 organisation.
bigger memory card. means just that, more memory.
in all other aspects, it is still the same phone, just better built, better desing and more memory to simply attract new users. SE will continue to bring out more models of phones, but at the same time. keep at the origonal theme everyone knows and loves. as this will keep sales rolling in.
anyways. why is everyone starting to bag out the w700 because "its the same desing"? for the ppl who dont know. this desing has been here since 2001 with the k700 and T610!.
Sony Ericsson stop making these annoying little boxes and give ur fans what they deserve a hot sleek and sexy phone. you are #1 in features and functionality and we love you for that, now give us a supermodel please we don't want any more clones. Luv SE 4eva
why are we still using this design. features you are the boss, performance grade a, design boring...next! please stop making these annoying little boxes and give your fans something to really look forward to. motorolla had the razr but that was beauty with no intelligence. sony ericsson please give us a hot sexy design we know you can do it! love
To the People who are banging on about how much his fone is the same as the w800 will u please be quiet.
The w800, features and design wise, rocks. I own one myself, but for the people who aint too keen on the design (ie my mother) and still want a great fone features wise the w700 is perfect. Personally i love the new design, i think its classy and appeals to ppl other than in the 20somethings, which for the last few months thats all they have catered for.
At the end of the day this fone looks good and is good so why are you all slating it?
W700 har fixfocus, whereas W800 has autofocus. There are some other slight changes too, and the W700 will be cheaper.
FIT! Fit fit fit fit fit!!! I cant wait for this to be available in england!
Its just another model of W800 in addition to K750, W810 and D750 so many model...just like samsung D series.
perhaps its about style am I right?
the W700 has an updated music player.
thats basicly it..
whats wrong with SE updating their main selling phones? obviosusly its selling well enough to do so.
this may attract new users, different colour set out.. i am a SE fan but i must say i was not a fan of white on orange, but i if i could now i would choose this over the k750 because of the MP3 layout.
and altho its not said, the W700 will have autofocus.
I don't see much point in bringing out this phone- with k 750i, w800i, w810i already out, but you can't really blame either Sony or Ericsson for selling out- who doesn't love money???
is it worth it to get the W700 or the W800? pricewise, functionwise, and designwise. i was thinkin about getting the w800 now this is about to be released. hmm.. wats more worth it? and is the camera that much of a difference or can u not even tell?
Tht's 3 differences between SE W700i n W800i :
1. AUTO FOCUS
-W800i built-in this function whereas SE cancel this function in W700i . This made the image slightly worse than W800i although its cam is 2 MegaPixels too .
2. MEMORY CARD
-If u buy a SE W800i , u will get a 512MB Memory Stick for free ;If u buy a SE W700i , U will only get a 256MB Memory Stick .
-Jus Check It Out Urself From The Image Of W700i N W800i !!!
-- Visitor --
If you read the spec of the w700i you will see that it doesn't have:
come with a 512mb duo card
come in smooth white (white and orange)
One thing the spec does say it does have usb v2.0 where as the w800i doesn't. Not sure if that was a typing error on GSM Arenas part. But basically it is a w800i without auto focus and it has a 256mb card. Price wise i bet they will be both £279.00 at carphone warehouse.
