I just got this phone today in Sweden (26 Sept) took a while to set up. One problem during setup was that I dont have 3G enabled on my Sim card (although my provider supports it), only GSM/GPRS at the moment, and the phone kept cyclically losing the GSM/GPRS network until I disabled 3G in the phone. I only had this problem because the phone is new an my provider didnt had automatic configuration available for the phone yet.
Initial feelings are good, only gripes so far is the memory stick is impossible to remove without a pen or something like that and the up "arrow" key is too close to the walkman key.
Or maybe I have big fingers...
I have a PSP, so it's nice to be able to use the same memory cards in the phone. Not that it matters but surprisingly the memory stick included was a Scandisk branded and not Sony branded. The phone played back dvd ripped mp4 files without a problem.
Menus feel a tiny bit slow, but not that noticable.
But a nice phone!

PLEASE gsm arena team
review this walkman fone W850i
SEEMS GRE8 !
Thanx in advance .....
this phone is the best. hopefully will come out tomm. The W710 is already out!!bombai29 can u tell me if the orange line lights up?
This mobile is going to be 415 € in Greece. However, it is still unavailable for buying.
'shayn' there is no doubting the power, ability and sheer class of the nokia n91. A couple of my work collegues have it, however there is also no doubting thats its the same size as a common house brick lol. Its so big to have in say... jeans pockets that its very uncomfortable to even sit down.
I stongly believe 'and i could be wrong' that this w850i is the better and more agile alternative.
But at the end of the day its personal choice and good luck to everyone.
Thank you 'ryu'. Have spoken to o2 and they promised me that this handset is due in o2 shops and head office on FRIDAY 29th!!!
