to shah,, edge stands for enhanced data for gsm evolution or something like that and gives a faster data download but its not here where i am in uk...People often ask about it because if they cant get 3g""which is still quite a lot of the uk""it gives them a faster data speed..i dont know how much faster!! Anyway any better results from the battery as its nearly xmas & still choosing between sharp 903,,nokia n90 & this w900 and mainly interested in video but cant find anywhere frames per second of n90 & sharp 903 but this is full 30 fps..They are all quite big & on one site n90 just dropped to £395 sim free were as this is still £459 & carfone still havent released it sim free its only £379 by them.Why not wait? but have done that with so many phones and there still not out & these are & im a fone obsessive & want one of these,,Only 4 days left on most sites for xmas delivery.
to Swaminathan and all- there are 2 main forms of 3g.
the first is a completely new revised system. this includes many different systems including UMTS. this system is faster and more steady.
The second is an updated form of 2G technology. as time goes on it will be updated and become more sterdy and speedy(not that the others are going to be static). this group includes EDGE.
Each group has its benefits, so if you can just buy a phone that has both
hey guys i am very dissapointed.
here in South Africa our vodafone affiliate/associate/partner has really let fans of this phone down. they r vodacom and have released their phone portfolio for dec-feb. included are some new phones including the w550 which was released at the same time as the w900. but there is no w900. what is going on
thanks for that min.
i was actually wondering about syncing my mac itunes with the w900i, and since posting have come across a few bits of software. has anyone used any of these with their w900i:
sailing clicker (actually just makes phone into a remote control)
k750igrabber (stops mac crashing after disconnecting phone)
i would be very interested to know how they work with a w900i.
thanks again people...
Tim, if u have a powerbook with a built-in bluetooth, u can use it to sync with your cellphone, just let the computer find the device, and then you go to Browse Device.
this phone looks amazing!
and what is this talk about sony not having EDGE ... whats the big fuss about? What on earth is EDGE??? someone please fill me in...
Sony Ericsson I guess wakes up to changes a wee bit slowly. Looking at W900 or W900i it is sad to know that why Sony Ericsson has reservations about adding EDGE to its feature rich high end phones ?
the W900 is a very Phat and fat phone... nothing to say about it... only that it's too big for the pocket... about the specs... no comment
I just recently got the w900 from saberpoint.com and I must say its AWESOME! I had the sony ericsson k750 before this and there are some pro's and cons to each. The k750 definitely has a better form factor but not alot of internal memory. earpeice volume on w900 is much better than k750. w900 also comes with better earphones and walkman software which is great for music. The cameras are pretty much the same but the k750 I like better to take pictures with. The screen on the w900 is brilliant, much larger than k750 and brighter. The price was a bit steep but worth it
yo guys, i dont know which 1 to choose from, the SE w900i or the samsung i300, i mean they're both gr8 fones, with a lot of features bt i dont no which 1 2 gt, striker or AMH do u fink u could list the pros or cons of both fones and cn u tell me if on the samsung cn u listen 2 music and do summut else at the same tym and is it very very loud lyk the SE w900i, is da microdrive or internal memory any gdgd, does it have radio function and otha stuff lyk dat, if u cud list some features on both fones adat wud b gr8
fair enough, horses for courses & all that.
anyone know of that program for syncing music with a mac?
has anyone used sailing clicker?
This is to tim, i got the black version and i wish i had the white version, the white looks so much better. The black looks cheap
i just got the shock of my life...upon opening the couried parcel from vodafone to find a WHITE W900i! it is nasty, especially when i was expecting the nice sleek black version. anyone wanna swap?!
oh well, my question is how can i sync it up my music with my mac? i hear there is a piece of software out there, but is it just rumours? thank you :)
Cheers for those AMH, been away for a copule o days and not had a chance to look at them, but I'll check those links out when I get back home later cos GSMArena are SERIOUSLY dragging their heels with this review! I wouldn't mind what with all the others out there but I really like and trust GSMArenas reviews (Hint Hint, c'mon GSMArena sort it out!!!!)
This is an another small review
At last its officially for SALE in SINGAPORE! 2yrs plan - $1098 GG! lol good phone bad battery.. im still waiting for better smaller cooler versions to come out haha :D
I surely wouldn't want to buy this phone. Too big, even when the phone is closed.. And the color looks very old fashion also. The feature seems worth the price thought.
To the person below. I also found the battery life rubbish. Was thinking about returning it, but i like the phone. I thought the battery was faulty.Might still see if i can change it, as I have to charge every day, as it goes from full to flat in no time, really annoying. rest of the phone is great though
I got the w900i on yesterday and it looks good but a bit chunky though. I ordered a black version from telesales but recieved a white one!Everything seems fine but the only problem I'm having is installing the disc2disc program for the music player. when I click the install link, nothing happens. Can anyone help me with this problem? Also, does anyone know if theres a longer life battery because the one you get with the phone now is absolutely rubbish.
If its possible could you email me the solutions please?
