This is really clever & smart move by SE (in this case; read Sony mostly). Sony have finally realized that they failed - almost beyond repair, to influence (let alone dominate) the market for portable mp3-players - despite their proud historic Sony Walkman-heritage.
So what do they do to catch up? Well, they partly have a go at it from a different angle. They release a Walkman-cellphone instead. The portable phone - yet another 100% must-have device these days. Many Ipod- or Iriver-users are likely to be interested in a phone like W800 as well. In short: The W800 is a possible way back into the hearts of mp3-customers + a chance to polish up the somewhat 'has-been' brand-image of the Sony Walkman-logo. Clever move.
no this is not a 3G phone. 3G phones usually allow video conference (as in call+video) this means there shud be a video cam facing u when u're looking at the screen.
e.g. sony ericsson k600 IS a 3G phone. notice the cam in front
absolutely, besides,the color and including a huge MS duo in it, there are still many of the big differences between W800 and K750 :)
first, the decent cystal-clear headset of Sony would come with the phone in the box which could give you expendability of the mood of music of yours.
second, the mp3 player feature of this phone is very thoughtful it gives you a terific sound that working so well with the headset not to mention to being able to play continously up to 30 hours(in the condition of the phone switched off of course)
K750,on the other hand, works excellent jobs at connectivities,although W800 could do it as well but not as good as K750 for example bluetooth transferring data. So it seems to me that they both are good and share the most abilities but anyhoo if you are a music-crazed kinda guy you better bet your money on W800(or maybe the shiny of color that attracted to somebody) otherwise, K750 would do you just fine, Plus, W800 would be more expensive whrn it comes out anyway so your baby yet?
Ps. Please dont mind my English and my opinion 'cause I just said what I heard and read so peace :)
Except for the capacity of the memory card and the color, is there any difference with the K750 ?
I wish for once they make a symbian phone.. i like S.E. but i wanna be able to change the icons, menu layout and install programs... just like a computer... the only symbian OS based phone S.E. has is p800,900,910 they're too chunky, nokia excells in this area... I guess it's a Nokia 6630 for me then.
SE phones always have many good feature, and this one is excellent i think...
i don't like the design very much, though...
Wow !! This is a one of a kind .All i need is here. I cant help to get it now.
sweeet...does anyone have any idea of when exactly this phone is goin to be released and how much it's goin to cost? oh.. and is it coming to aust???
seriously dudes..wat's e point of getting a high-mP cameraphone? okay, so perhaps e mp3 is rather useful as it releases us of the need of carrying an IPOD or watever around.. BUT a camera phone?paying hundreds and hundreds for a high definition mP phone is not recommended.. u might as well get yourself a reall camera!
but yeahx, SE RuLeX..//``
i'm Sven. I live in Suriname, but i'm dutch. My opinion is that if i could ever build a phone, it would defenetely be one with the options this phone has. I also like this color, i usually don't like orange very much, but this is very different. This was my opinion, i hope you contact me again and maybe give me a free phone like this one.
I bet the quality will be better than the p900 or p910i..this isss an Walkman SE phone..and since music is pretty much the main focus on this phone the sound quality better be amazing!
The Samsung phones are really more like Pentax cameras with Samsung phones incorporated. In other words, they are much more 'cameralike' than 'phonelike' and are quite big and heavy. If this is what you want, fine, but I prefer a small, light phone with a decent snapshot camera. For more sophisticated photography I have a dedicated digital camera. I don't like the idea of mixing the two.
hey,no offence man,the highest mp in hp ever built is a 5mp,it was built in samsung sch-s250,its gonna release soon,beside samsung also release a 3.3 mp camera in samsung sch-s2300,also gonna release soon.
But to tell da truth moto cant compare to SE after wat SE had done to the handfone world,so W800 n K750 is surely one of the best! ermm...when will SE release a 3-4mp camera,im still waiting....
i curiosity How is w800 sound quality ?
i think w800 sound quality as good as p900 or p910i... Dont Better than p900 or p910 i
What do you thing about w800
