The links seem genuine....if mobilefun.co.uk are to be trusted you can get a simfree w900i dispatched within 2-3 days for £479.... http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/product/8697.htm....Think I'll wait till the new year though, and I've even been getting second thoughts and have been considering the P990 cos Ive just got my hands on some free Tomtom software and that would be very handy indeed...And yeah, where did my last post on the W900 page go anyway what were up with that??? Guess they don't like me!
Cheers for all the info, especially pleased to hear they've sorted out the lagging UI the S700i suffered from. Can I ask, how long would you say the delay was from the moment of pressing the camera button, to the moment of image capture? The S700i had an irritatingly long delay that I hope they've resolved....
Errrrr, wrong place dude.....
I guess you're refering to TheOneDazz... Lighten up a little...if you read his posts with an open mind you'll see he's around here a lot and has a lot of worthwhile points to make, and personally I think his take on the language is a pleasure to read (always makes me smile) it stands out, and it’s even a challenge sometimes! (sorry Dazz!)...He's obviously got a brain in his head, you can see this by the content of his posts, yet based on the way he types it out, you said: "Do you even know how to write?" and "I"wrili"don't know what is with English today.".......there's people out there killing each other in the most unimaginable ways and you look down on us English for the way a fella types? Calm down Tina! This place is supposed to be about mobile phones not an English lesson (take note Viperkid)...
Anyway hope everyone above gets a chance to see this cos no doubt it’ll not be here long! Adios!
hello i just bought a w900 for 599euros here in Belgium.Some info:1)the package does not include 64mb stick
2)you can record in QVGA with the 2mpixel camera and not in 176*144
3)if you want to record in 176*144 pixels you
can do that through the small camera in front of the phone which is used for 3G calling
4)QVGA recording has a bitrate of 175Kbps and not 384Kbps.I havent recorded in a memory stick card only in the internal memory
but i think it would be the same.I will check it when i buy a memory stick duo card
5)clips with 176*144 resolution are also played in full screen and the best of all you
can fast forward any video clip and it is very fast
6)you can transfer games to the phone not directly to the icon with the phone memory but first to any folder you want and after you have to use the phone which will copy the games from your folder to his memory
7)UI of the phone is fast no comparison with s700i
The only thing that i dont like is that QVGA recorded clips have 175Kbps and not 384Kbps as i have seen in the internet
34GB Memory Stick ehh??? You must be crazy. U must talkin about a hard disk.
Well when comparing the W800i and W900i there are very few differences to consider..
The differences i could find are as follows:
W800i = 38mb
W900i = 470Mb
2»Number of pixels:
W800i = 38720
W900i = 76800
W800i = 400h SB, 9h talk-t
W900i = 370h SB, 8h 40mins talk-t
Both phones have memory slots for pro duo meory cards up to atleast 1gig, possibly 2 but im not sure :p
The W900i also has blutooth 2.0, where as the W800i has just bluetooth
The w900i weighs about half as much again, but its design is pretty sleek and it has much better ergonomics with the mp3 player becuase not only does it have devoted music controls on the front but also special headphones with a control set thingy majighy :p lol u know what i mean
Darn both phones are ace, they are all the considerable differences i could find, maybe theres more but im gettin the W800i for crimbo seeing as there isnt really that many differences, and the W900i isnt going to be free on contract i shouldnt think...what a bummer :(
TheOneDazz- dude calm down. whats with all the typing. TO ALL- mobile-review say in their review that you cannot switch off the shutter sound
Love It, Much better than the w800 Bring it on....
Love you long time Sony E
hang on a minuet ware did strikers post go? there woz notin wrong wid wot he said an i wonna no iv he has had n e luk accesin dat link iv u stil dare striker let us no how u got on
on d price decrese ting a woz on bout earlier sum mor examples r V3 came out in feb woz £300 on pay as u go (even mor on sim 3) iz now £120+, 6230i woz £250 wen it came out in may an iz now £150+ (pay az u go) d onli brand dat seems not 2 follow d trend dat wel iz samsung d d500 onli jus came out on pay as u go officialy dis month an iz £200+ ouch dats a lot 2 say its bin out 4 over a year
So iv i woz u striker m8 i'd actuali wait til d new year 4 it like am doin, coz i doubt we wil b able 2 get hold ov it til den n e way, it may av a 8th dec release d8 but dat iz yet t.b.c, wen uv bin in d fone industry as long az i av u no wot fones r like regardin delays, christmas rush an stok issues (d D500 woz a nightmare 4 us last year evry1 wanted it but we ad stock issues til march dis year, an dis is o2 we talkin bout) so best bet wen u c it in d new year no mater wot shop it is go in an get it or @least put ur name down coz am exspectin dis 2 b a big hit ( considerin n91 is due out in d new year 2)
an also wen dis gets released d afect it wil av on other s.es on d market wil b very positive. k750 woz £350 wen it came out @ 1st den wen down 2 £250 wen d w800 woz released (dat woz bout £400, but iz now bout £300+) so i tink d k750 wil b £180+ an d w800 £250+ wen d w900 iz officialy out an lets not 4get day r even cheaper on network brandin
striker wen u clik on d pic of d w900 on dis gsm site an it cums up wiv a biger pic ov d fone it also shows a couple ov prices 4 deals 4 d fone, it says £280 on sum o2 tarrif £180 on sum vodafone tarif an £480 sim free, a dun no how credable day reali r coz it wun let go 2 d link my work computer has restictions on it, however iv u luk @ d price ov d k750 an w800 sim free ul notice d price increase so £500 sounds bout rite, iv dis iz d case den it wud b bout £400 (or so) in d new year dat wil b a bargin!
gud 2 hear dat u can turn of d sound 4 wen u take a pic coz dat noiz can b wel anoyin
so this phone can take photos with sound off? and the photo is clearer? wat u mean by it does not support memory stick?
PS: No memory stick available, cause it has 470MB internal memory already. So only comes with disc, manual and fancy headphones/hand free (depending what u call them).
You search the phonebook exactly like w800, by first character. I think it sucks too! but other than that, the phone works pretty well, kinda worth its bucks! Specially the camera, that as more functions that K750/W800. U can now choose to turn on or off the auto focus, choose shutter sound and spot photometry, which makes the pictures even more clear. Kinda cool! :)
To Phoneguy413: The battery life it's not that great compare to other phones but it's understandable cuz of all the function the phone have.
To MOHK: No it doesn't come with the memory stick.
About the PC software it comes with exact same software as W550, on cd includes: SE File manager, Disc2Phone, Adobe and SE PC suite. I haven't used the all the programs yet but as I do I will keep you guys updated.
It's on this web page where they mentioned that the phone comes with a 64 Mb MS
