"Teaching an old dog some new trick" Hey that's what SE is trying to do, don't be a fool, they are all the same phone, W800,k750,or even the W550... same software or hardware just a few tweak, wanna know how I know, friend wroking as a technician at SE. I would said go for W750 with is cheaper if not W800, if you own any one this phone don't be fool to upgrade, you won't find lots of "NEW" excitment except for some new button or colour!
Ey Up Dazz!!! Hope all's well, not seen ya for a couple of days - not like u! Know whatcha mean about the W810, I'm considering it again myself now, just been offered a full satnav system cheap so I mayt not be needing the P990 after all.....ooh decisions decisions......
I can see the point you're making, but SE are no different from any other company in that they strive to achieve a corporate identity. They succeed because their phones look like SE phones. They're instantly recognisable as SE phones, and this is the specific intention of the R&D people at SE. Same reason a Porsche looks like a Porsche and a pair of adidas trainers look like adidas trainers.
Technically, the W900 is the better phone. It does have a marginally better spec, but the bottom line is it solely boils down to what you will use your new phone for, and your own personal taste. The link below shows the specs side by side, that may help you decide:
Is it just me or do the w800, w810, and k750 all look like pretty much the same models?

Adam, how about the offical sony ericsson site? w800 and w810 got both 176x220 resolution, but the w810 display is brighter.
A music phone with no (imo) ugly W800 colors and no more malfuctioning joystick.
I'm getting it when it comes out!
to Walkman, w810i, has a bigger screen than k750i and w800i. My evidence is this ; http://phonearena.com/htmls/re...d=940&page=2

Jeff- in the next 8 weeks
John- the w900/ n70/ qtek9100 / d820 . . . the list goes on forever. you have to decide what bundle you are looking for, and then you need to look at all phones that fall under that group. then you need to see wwhich one works best for you. and you should not say that you are not looking for a specific bundle, bcos having no criteria slash idea what you are looking for, means that you are looking for the perfect phone/ a perfect phone. a phone never exists and will never exist so long as we all have our individual opinions.
nadeem- the mp3 player that is on/ used in the phone is very similar to that of a walkman. the sound quality is superb and will definitely sound better on a walkman phone than the k750. the software makes it better rather than the hardware
Can any one tell tht is mp3 music player n sound quality of k750 n walkman phone is same or diff . ?
does anyone know how long it is supposed to be until the w810 comes out or is it just "coming soon"?
Jake- if you want 3G and video calls get the w900. if you want small yet sophisticated and advanced get the w810 or w800. if you have time and patience of the w800 and w810 i would suggest you wait for the latter, becuse it is the same phone, JUST better.
storm- not all the glitches can be solved, otherwise it would be perfect. BUT you can be assusred that all the major problems have been dealt with. EDGE is available 850 MHZ in the US regions. in UK it would have a different frequency and therefore would work in the UK region.
Jeff- if you want a cheap phone with many features look towards the w800/810.
w600 is for those who only need 128MB of mem. on the phone with mp3+1.3 mp camera. w800/810 for people who need large ext. mem. that can be easily transfered+2mp camera. w900 is for higher spenders who need 3g high int mem+features+high end 2mp camera+video.
Aroon- there is nolens cover(the buldge will protect it from damager) but that is not deal. the phone has EDGE technology which is like 3g. but on this phone there is no secondary video call camera so the EDGE is used only for OTA data trasmissions.
adam- one correction there, the screens are infact the same size
To all- evryone has their right to their own opinions, so you should not slander any phone if you do not like it yourself, bcos someone else might want to buy it themselves but now they base their phone purchasing decisions of the thoughts that come out of your brain.
121- yes they do. networks that support GPRS will be and are converting their GPRS receptors into dual-receptors that can also act as EDGE receptors. (since EDGE is so similar to GPRS in how it works) by the middle of the year most of the networks would have done this
I was at the BBC TV Centre in White City for Apple's Macworld Keynote, representing Fonebox.com. Although there for any phone related Apple announcements, I just happened to bump into a chap from Sony Ericsson, who was holding a production W810 in his hand - which is why I noticed him in the first place! He let me play with it and it is absolutely georgous. Very compact and comfortable, and the controls are excellent. But other than the sexy black and orange finish, what blew me away was the Flash based user interface skin he had running on it. Made the phone menus more like those in the movie representation of how gadgets work. But anyway, the phone feels solid. Re the lack of lens cover, I think the act of putting a phone in the pocket cleans the lens, while covers can sometimes (as per my own nice SE V600i) collect dust inside the cover. The W810 lens is recessed anyway. I didn't try any of the phones other features. Ironically, seeing the W810 was more exciting than most of what Apple had to show, although the iWeb application, iPod FM receiver/remote and magnetic power connector on the poorly named 'MacBook Pro' were all examples of excellence in design. Now, combine an iPod and a W810 in a slider form factor and life would be almost complete...
