I just saw news that this phone will be coming out here in the U.S. before August ends, and it looks that they will be selling it unlocked over here....
I like this phone so I might get it when it comes out, but im not so sure of the price, so for the people from the UK, how much did you pay for it, can you put it in U.S. money.
I got a K750i the a week ago and returned it and got a w800i on friday (the day it came out) and i have to say its bar far the best phone ive ever have had! sexy colour, brill camera and a fab MP3!!
5*****'s definately recommended!!!
I'm getting my W800 this saterday and i'm gone love it! It's the best phone out at the moment! It even beats the Samsung D600 and bye the way I hate the Samsung D500 that's the most peace of crap ever build by Samsung you pay 400€ for nothing Peace Out ! ! !
I know of new O2 customers who are joining to get this phone, and have been guaranteed delivery this week - so it makes a bit of a mockery of the assurance that I had last week that existing customers take priority.
I think this is pretty shabby - but like I say, you can get the phone as an upgrade through O2 stores. If anyone has emailed me for more info following my earlier post, I'll reply on Monday evening.
The phone has a tourch on it which is used as the flash, no need to go and buy an external one.
I got my 8800 the day it came out and i have no complaints about it. A sexy phone that can do everything. Its the little things that make this phone so good. For example when you receive or send a text it will show a photo of the person you sent it to. I think that was a nice touch.
Phil - don't worry - I had all those different stories as well.
You CAN get the phone as an upgrade now from O2 stores, even if you're an O2 online customer. I got mine on Saturday.
Email me if you want to know more.
Does the external flash come with the phone, or do you have to buy it seperate?
wanted to order it as a upgrade from O2 but
they have given me so many bloody stories
about W800 sayin its not out yet, they havent got a price etc, yet it is on their
website as large as life!
they told me to call back end of oct!
spoke to about 5 different people and they all told me a diff storey!
02 is absolutly f'in crap!
HAIL SONY ERICSSON! lol dah i tell u all 1 thing tho the colour is indeed abit striking but who cares man! 90% of the time u put ur phone in ur pocket unless u wanna use the camera and btw even if u listen to mp3 u still put inside the pocket dun tell me u hold it on ur hands do u? anyway to me the design is not bad i saw the pics provided by this web look at it maybe it will change ur think abit =] ty for attention all and lets pray 34gig memory card come out soon hehe :D
Wow! I can't believe that this phone has been already released in central america and in the US has not and it cost 550 dollars
1) hate the colour combination
2) love the camera
3) love the memory
4) get it now!
*does it come in other colours?
is this phone supports application and games,
i have used k750 there is not any application to install , no privecy of files ,
k750i & w800, looks grest , but no upgradation , limitation of sony erricsson's own os ,
no SYAMBIAN , NO FUTURE ,
I HAD THIS PHONE FOR 15 DAYS , I AM GOING TO SELL IT ANY RATE ........
Which online music store do u use for W800?
Does it accept music from iTunes?

there is other differences between k750 n w800..
1) mp3 player w800 better
2) w800 can support a 35gig memory card look at opinion from 'sense' but he said 34gig memory card will be release at 2034 i'm not sure if its true cuz other dude said it will be release next year rofl.. anyway i just buy a 4gig should be enuff.. & k750 can only support up to about 512m memory card not so sure but i think so..
.. i would like to ask u guys out there who already own this great phone. when we use the voice recording mode (dictaphone)...what happen if there is an incoming call during the recording..? will it stop recording or else?
