i planned to buy this model because it doesnt have the annoying joystick that always complain by the customers~ however, how come there is no cover or lid for the camera?!!! replacing joystick is an easy job but how if the camera get spoilt?! so u guys must think properly before getting this model~~
For those in the U.S., I called SE because my k700i is being repaired and the representative I spoke with said that the W810 had been delayed until Q2. He did say however that if I looked hard enough I'd be able to find it on the internet even though it hasn't been officially released by Sony Ericsson.
U r it baby, i can't find another in ur place 4 now, hold what u've. Hope de ringtones will match de effects, and also de MMC which is up 2 2GB will available in the market 4 upgrading if the need be.
Just 4 seein' dis phone, i've changed my mind, i was about pickin' either K750i or W550 series b4 its release. I think it will suit my needs & interests. I am delighted. Naija here I come.
This version is backwards compatible with 1.1 and the major enhancements include
Adaptive Frequency-hopping spread spectrum (AFH), which improves resistance to radio frequency interference by avoiding using crowded frequencies in the hopping sequence
Higher transmission speeds in practice
extended Synchronous Connections (eSCO), which improves voice quality of audio links by allowing retransmissions of corrupted packets.
Host Controller Interface (HCI) support for 3-wire UART
HCI access to timing information for Bluetooth applications.
This version is backwards compatible with 1.x. The main enhancement is the introduction of Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) of 2.1 Mbit/s. This has the following effects (Bluetooth SIG, 2004):
3 times faster transmission speed (up to 10 times in certain cases).
Lower power consumption through a reduced duty cycle.
Simplification of multi-link scenarios due to more available bandwidth.
Further improved BER (bit error rate) performance."
hey there cruz. i know u r from malaysia, and same here too... since we are talking RM then im easy to know more bout this phone. today i asked time square's sony branch. when this phone coming out, the sales person answer me "Dont know when will be coming out" huh?? i tot it is out in the market ady.. and as u said is RM1899(latest)Well. where did u see that they sell this phone? I hope to get this phone too..
Im soo glad its released. Soon I amma be strutting with my new phone woope. I live in Antigua - thats the Caribbean and I cant wait until my supplier gives this phone to me! :D
can anyone tell me if the ringtone/sms/mms alert tones plays up to d last second of the file especially when a MP3 or AAC file was used as an alert?? (don't tell me SE still did not fixed dat stupid thing of playing around ONLY 10 seconds if u select a MP3 as an alert tone even d file itself is longer...) thanks!
bluetooth 1.2 means not only weaker than 2.0 but version 1.2 means that it does NOT support bluetooth stereo! : ( and if im not mistakin' both of em has d same range (around 10 meters?) d only difference is dat u can connect several devices at same time with 1.2 unlike with previous bluetooth version.
here's d official specs of W810 (it does not even support WMA and eAAC+ audio codes, quite poor for a walkman phone..)
The phone has now appeared on the Orange (UK) website as 'coming soon'. Earlier posting on here suggest it is also in the Orange magazine now as 'coming soon', although I haven't checked yet. I am a little surprised that O2 says the 27th of March as I have read on a number of websites that Orange (+ 1 other network) had a one month exclusivity on the phone with SE around the Christina promotion etc.
Yea iv'e done the same, just called them for an upgrade and they said i cant order it until the 27th :(
Just phoned o2 to upgrade to w810, they are still saying the release date is 27/03!!
looks good but not impressive as the k800 - 3mp and some other better features, also the 4gb se phone looks cool if u want just walkman.
is there really such a bit difference between this and the w800?
They're all over eBay now! Woohoo. I just snatched one for $511 (plus ship). Check this page to check the lowest ebay prices. http://www.fonegrabber.com/97/sony-ericsson-w810i/
Even i know this phone very very good.. I'm so excited to had this phone w810i.
I still want to post to said that Sony Ericsson done a good job in w810i.. my phone never 'hang' n and the software quite good. never slow down even my memory stick almost full. :p ^o^ I love SEw810i !!..
I've just entered a competition from Orange to win one of these haha.
Bluetooth 1.2 means that the range is less than 2.0 but it's more stable apparently.
Anyone put an order in for this from O2? I called them at 18:00 today for a upgrade to this and they said they didnt have it til 27th, obv they do because its on the website, jus gona have to try to moz morn to order it. Cant wait!
This phone is now available to order on new connections direct from o2's website orders should start going out early next week :-p
