The local SE agency (with the HQ) determines the price not the Country!!!!!
It will not take long to see the price hit a reasonable level ($250-$300).
And for the people who just want us to shut up - Sony´s business decisions effects the whole market!
It is also unethical to screw long time buyers just because the market suddenly expended or other reasons (oligopoly, price fixing etc.)
New customers are less knowledgeable and less experienced. (suddenly got lots of money)
While we are the ones made Sony a Global Powerhouse.
Think about the Pharmacology companies. Same story!
According to my request via an eMail to GSM Arena, the "Recorfing at 15fps", which was mentioned as one of its main disadvantages in its review part is resolved and omitted.
If those of you do not like this phone; or believe Sony is charging too much for it, then why bother wasting time here posting! ...Go look for something you like & can AFFORD!
This is not the phone for you, period!
am a sony fan no doubt abt that..but i still really doubt this fone...see..whts in this fone thats not in w960i...alright just making it slim..i dont think that it will do a lot of good...i dont think this fone is going to be any success and..really i want sony ericsson to launch w960i with 5mp camera..and a little improved in looks department,...if sony does that than..n95..bye bye...
for those of you who haven't seen the amazing 3D simulation:
hi this is sanjay and iam fully impressed with the phone x1 it is a completely buiseness phone and i like that phone very much and iam very eager to know the launch date of x1.
Not buying this before it drops below the $400 price point.
CTI-Miami.com has the best price currently.
what are you talking about? of course its expensive, 420USD is soo not worth it at all. i dunno what website you are looking at, but w910 is like $100 cheaper than this phone.
@mstl,you are fully correct, no torch cause no basic led and no basic focus facility like macro switch..Just expensive for no specific point at all÷well said
Just wondrin why you guyz are looking for a good camera on awalkman phone!?!?!?
If you want a good picture quality then buy a K-series dont bother buying W-series coz its made for music guyz not for Pictures!!!
not all the features you would need from a high end phone (8-series).
no flash or autofocus (or at least 1 of the 2)
not very good sound (w-series, hey it SHOULD be a music fone)
worst part is,
NO Aux IN or 3.5mm/2.5mm jack like nokia.
i could easily plug in my nokia 5310 to my car stereo while i could not do that with my w880i.
i thought sony was ALMOST there beating nokia in CLASS and FUNCTIONALITY, but hey, their quality started going down. s500/w580 keypad cracking, w910 slider mechanism.
yeah, u're right, just waiting and hoping for further price drop......
420 USD is TOO much for it!
If you think it is not too much donate a few bucks to people in need and do not drag about how little for you this money unless you work for SE - in that case 500USD is cheap too for you only since ....
By the way, in three days the price dropped 80USD. I guess not many people was willing to waste money while others go hungry every day.
No matter how much SE tries to promote it.
This is a phone without any special features.
No GPS, lousy camera, small screen, no touch screen, limited memory, etc.
This phone is not expensive at all ... only selling for USD420. in Hong Kong; which is approxmately the same price as the W910. This phone does have better feature as compared to the W910! The only let down is the smaller screen & the metal used for the phone make it feels cheap & flimsy!
