As i liked the XPERIA X8 and i always wanted a Walkman phone (since i saw the W300, walkman version of my Z530), i'm just waiting it...
And it will have the orange Walkman colour, as the blue and red ones.
why still run on eclair?
for now, maybe it's okay while we wait for update after it launch, maybe 3 months later. I just bought a Zylo whichis a walkman too to update my old W200i, and the rumour was tell that SE will make an android walkman named W15 but it's a fake. then it come in silent and realy shocks me! I really want it, REALLY. like a dream comes true when SE officially announce it, even it's still wit eclair, so I can make all my phone completely 'walkman'.
cmon s.e.. I know the latest android (gingerbread) is too great for small smartphones like this w8, x8, or x10 mini, but why don't u come with froyo? no installing app to sdcard is so frustrating I can't install a lot of games :(( eclair is so out of date
i may be excited in seeing this one in the homepage.. but really got disappointed when i saw the specs.. memory.. camera.. os.. and the color, it could have an orange one but if it still with black.. don't like it!
i still prefer the looks of my SE W800i white/orange.
What a waste . . .
i think it will never make a good profit.
W8 = X8 + walkman exprience
Dont bother to think whether it has clear audio or not, this is android phone, there're many music apps. you can download from Market eg PowerAmp app. to improve your music experience. Not only clear bass, clear stereo or crystal clear, it can make the sound like nuclear - loud, clear and explosive!
AnonD-5299, 23 Apr 2011Who said it didn't have the clear technologies?The specs in sonyericsson's website says nothing about clear audio experience (see for yourself under specification>music) whereas my Zylo(W20) and other phones like W705,W980 & W995 comes with Sony's revolutionary and award winning Clear Audio Technologies (i.e. Clear Bass & Clear Stereo) which is way better than MegaBass & can strongly compete with iPod. Without it, Walkman has Just the same quality as a Cybershot music player but with louder volume output.
600MHz Qualcomm SoC - It's Nice.! But 168MB RAM It's Too Low For It's Category, Atleast 256MB Would Be Nice.! :(
Newer Android Powered Phones Arriving With Froyo/Gingerbread But This One Still Stuck With Eclair.! :(
A 3.2" Or 3.5" Display Would Be Quite Handy For This Resolution.!(320x480)
A Slimmer Formfactor Under 12mm With An Attractive Shiny Bezel Look Of ARC Adds More Color.!
love..came all the way with budget phone from sony ericsson.. of coz it not high end... it same spec as x8... iam expecting the same price.. huhu
i like this handset it's all functionable ,,,,,,,....................... have a good day
SE used the x8 so they don't have to spend on r&d resources thus enabling them to sell the w8 at (hopefully) a low price. It's meant for entry level market. (also explains the low specs) If this sells, SE could make high end walkman phone in the future.
