Oh dear I have obviously upset the Nokia fanboys as they have taken to posting utter rubbish under my name. Sad how desperate they have become.
@Ishuaia - Given that the screen resolution is 176 x 220 pixels I'd say that was obviously the ebst size to use.
Can you stick 4gb memory stick pro duos into the w810? The w800 could use them but this says that w810 is only up to 2gb, kinda stupid.
Anyone know the max frame size I can compress a video(movie,music video,etc) to be able to view it with good quality on the w810i ?
The max I can convert is 176x120 and it scks at horizontal screen position.
Anyone know which is the best for horizontal view?
In 2006 Sony Ericsson is planning on extending its proposal even further. Considering that many companies have already launched their sliders, release of similar models by SE was only a matter of time. Thanks to big leap up of its production facilities and bigger investments into R&D sector, the company has managed to bring up more models to the market. All this has made many users compare SE to the market’s best - Nokia, which share the same policy in certain ways and on top of that a number handsets of these two giants are nothing else but direct rivals. While similar in some respects, Sony Ericsson spends much less money on developments, since the company is not ready to scatter its funds, and therefore displays not much of activity in the field of smartphones and introduces fewer all-new models as against other competitors. But things tend to constantly change, and success on original cell phones market paves the way for filling more niches, namely those of the other form-factors.
Model Cindy was to hit the shelves in June but early in 2006 it was postponed due to intentions of announcing and eventually releasing Sony Ericsson K790i/K800i in the first place. The model precisely copies Sony Ericsson K800i, featuring slightly altered feature set, different camera and integrated Walkman 2.0 media player. One and the same core functionality means that the model will reside in the same high price bracket and what is more is going to be boosted by widely known standard kit of all Walkman-branded handsets price-wise.
To differences, interpreted as obvious drawback and refuse to spread new M2 memory type, many refer MS Duo Pro expansion slot. Nonetheless I have to destroy this myth - Sony Ericsson is going to end incorporating Duo pro slots after this model. Mass switching to M2 format occurs in view of gradual raising of the production of these cards and therefore less price, so it has more of a induced step in it. But it isn’t the main point of interest about the upcoming change – many people will find themselves somewhat in trouble since a PSP or a digital camera by Sony they own make use of MS DUO Pro thus all this seems to be a well-calculated and evaluated move aimed at applying different memory types to different platforms. The second and in fact the most reasonable explanation is the struggle for free space in casings of the modern handsets, and the older a card is the more room it takes up. And if in course of 2006 we won’t have the pleasure of playing around with some slim handsets by the company they are bound to appear in future, but will have significant differences from the sense of “slim” word implied by other manufacturers. SE is more likely to stick to its credo of high price/quality ratio and overwhelming feature set and introduce devices of moderate thickness.
Reasoning from the W850i’s announcement time one could have expected it to carry an M2 adapter, but not an MS DUO Pro slot, as all latest prosperous solutions of the company boast exactly this type. And thus we have all rights to surmise that its release date was rescheduled, basically there is another reason arguing for this point of view, namely, product placement. The device appears in DaVinci code for the very first time, where the heroes look up all information in Google using the W850i, borrowed from a guy in the bus. Take into account the fact this film was released on the 18th of May and the company’s tradition to promote only the models already on sale, and the puzzle is complete. The next film to feature one of SE’s handsets is Casino Royal, another story about James Bond, where Mr. Bond himself will show off a brand-new Sony Ericsson K800i. By the moment the motion picture hits theaters, the device will have already appeared in retail stores. So how comes the W850i got delayed? Sony Ericsson was simply aware of increased competition and made a decision to sustain a pause in order to acquire more loyal consumers. But enough of lyrics, time to give Sony Ericsson W850i a test.
The handset’s design doesn’t appear monolithic – it has eye-grabbing uncommon elements, making it look somehow different them all other devices of the same class. The same holds true for Sony Ericsson W900i, where official black finishing was diversified with orange edging of the navigation pad. Other manufacturers are not aiming at experimenting with outlook of their products and thus present solutions in austere style without flashy colors. Though the first glance won’t reveal any fancy parts of the construction, saving for the button under the screen, painted in orange.
Another unusual component if the navi-key integrated into the surface, making you think it retains touch pad technology, however this isn’t the case. The plastic used there is more flexible, so that you can press it and move through the menus in all possible directions. Points to be presses are marked with light indicators (tiny spots with backlighting), which don’t lack illumination owing to more powerful diodes placed nearby. When not playing back music the keys are lit in white, but once the first notes start coming out from the loudspeaker the backlighting turns into pink. The dedicated orange Walkman key incorporates two KeyPulse LEDs. Considering that the main block of light diodes also adopts this capability, you gain something like son of lumiere. Though the best version of KeyPulse one could experience in Motorola’s handsets, to be precise in Motorola v80 – that model could even synchronize pulsations not only with outgoing tunes, but also with those surrounding the phone, further more, variety of backlighting colors and sizeable illuminated area earned this phone the all-round first place in this category. Of course it was followed by several solutions by Nokia, but the truth is not a one of them could even be an even match for the v80. For some people Haptics has managed to become that emotional bond, sought by all manufacturers.
DONT BUY THIS PHONE THIS PHONE IS NOT GREAT
your a gamer hah..so i will tell the difference of this two if you don't mind the features,you like games im right coz your i gamer symbian OS is has a great software than j2me,i will compare this two just like Xbox and ps2,xbox(symbian os) and ps2(j2me)symbian os is great for mobile gaming just like my n-gage i have a emu. of nes and its cool but java cant to that but java has a great game too but you have too pre order but for me i will buy this phone the features of this phone is greater than 3250 and this phone is great for gaming too try..
There's a lot of background hiss/noise in the player when using headphones, kinda like an old tape walkman.
If you're looking for a substitute for a high quality MP3/MD/CD player look elsewhere.
Well yes you can record up to one hour, but the quality is crap. It's still 178*128 resolution or something like that.
Can anyone tell me plz that W810i have the play back option of 30 hours if the mobile is switched off plz tell me as soon as possible
thank you auz know i know this phone can do that.thanx pal i luv you..Muwahh
packman, the phone has just lost an hour, and the guy in question is on holiday!!
It's small and very smart it's 1 of those phones that u say "Imust have IT!"
In the WALKMAN player there is an option as "Fullscreen". i don't know how it works becoz i don't own w810i. I read that in the manual i downloaded from www.sonyericsson.com/support .
The manual decsribes it as :- Fullscreen - view video clips in maximum size. -:
