does this phone have motion senor gaming like the one in w910 and w760? pls answer
I just bought the phone...everyone who is talking about the phone and dnt actalu have it SHUT UP...ITS AN AMAZING PHONE...the best sound quality...better than iPod...so wat...no wifi...but still....best phone i ever head...deserves its price
It's light, it's solid (no sliding/open-closing), nice camera, nice phones (3.5mm jack adaptor included), it's definitely my kind of phone.
It's just not perfect for the lack of wifi experience and a high price.
I'll wait for next W to come, then I'll trade my W810i.
how does it cost?
i think my wife could buy it
besitos a todos !
you can save more by buying a cheap 8 gb nano, the music quality is better. no 3.5 mm jack, too expensive.
I agree to all of you that this phone is so expensive but the price is worth it because it's one of the best music phone. Compare it with nokia's express music with so many noise. I also don't understand why all of you are so frustated that this phone doesn't even has a 3.5mm jack. It's just because this phone isn't really meant for it. SE want some advancement because they don't like their costumers to be frustrated of wires. It's already the 21st century and wireless earphones are
to replace those 3.5mm
SE designer people are living in another planet - its called the "no 3.5 mm jack walkman phone planet with stratospheric prices and very expensive M2 cards"
oh no! another SE walkman phone with no 3.5 mm jack and terribly overpriced. they have got to be kidding. buy a nano if you want music, its superb and with awesome battery life - while this new phone is - outrageously expensive. good thing SE is not listening to us. they think all phones labeled Walkman will sell automatically even with no 3.5 mm jack or a horrid price.
outrageously expensive. in the minds of the SE designer boys we or you will chase and worship this phone because it has the walkman brand stamped on it. Well, times have changed and you have to do better than give us a phone with no 3.5 mm jack. I repeat this phone is lousy for me because it has no 3.5 mm jack and is stupidly expensive. if you want to be stupid too, buy this phone.

This is for opinions. Plagiarizing (no quotes)is pretty low!
Available in Volcanic Black, Wine Red or Earth Green, the W902 is a 3G music phone with a classic "candy-bar" shape. The W9xx series of phones includes Sony Ericsson's premium Walkman phones, so we immediately have high expectations for the W902. We're going to view the W902 as the successor to our favourite Walkman phone ever - the W810i. The W810i was perfect. Even though it was fat and only had a 2 megapixel camera, for its time it was brilliant, and we want the W902 to be as good now as the W810i was back in 2006. But is it?
Well, the W902 looks quite a lot like the old W810i. It's a classic shape, with nice buttons and very easy-to-use Walkman controls. It's a bit bigger than most similar phones, but nice and slim, so we'll forgive that. It weighs 100g, which feels just right to us. When you've spent this much on a phone, you want one that feels solid, after all! The screen is good, although at 2.2 inches it isn't the biggest. But remember that this is a music phone first, so it's not about how it looks so much as how it sounds. Which brings us on to ...
... the W902's music player is the latest version of the Walkman player, and everything is here - you can play, rewind, fast forward, equalise, shuffle tracks and create playlists on the phone. There are eight equaliser presets. The FM radio with RDS shows which station you're tuned into, as well as the name and artist of the song playing. We're disappointed to find that the built-in memory is just 25 Mbytes, which is frankly mean. However, Sony Ericsson have been more generous in bundling an 8GB Memory Stick Micro card with the phone, which is enough to store roughly 2,000 MP3 tracks - more if encoded in AAC format. The audio quality is really excellent, as the W902 uses the latest generation of audio technology - Clear Bass & Clear Stereo - previously heard only on Sony Ericsson's flagship Walkman phone, the W980i. On top of this, the W902 comes with the premium HPM-77 headset supplied. This is an outstandingly good headset. The icing on the cake would have been a 3.5mm headset jack so that you could plug in any headphones of your choice, but hey - the HPM-77 is an excellent headset anyway and it's free with the phone!
There are plenty of other music-related features available. PlayNow™ lets you download games, ringtones and other content to your phone - although you have to pay for this content. TrackID™ identifies a song (track, artist & album information) from a few seconds recording. Shake Control lets you change music track by shaking the phone when you press the Walkman key. SensMe lets you create playlists based on tempo and mood. Flight mode lets you listen to music (or play games, etc) whilst the ability of the phone to make and receive calls is switched off.
Most Walkman phones compromise on the camera quality, but not the W902. The camera has a 5 megapixel sensor, autofocus and a flash. This is virtually up to the standard of the C902 Cyber-Shot phone, so there's really nothing to complain about at all here. As well as the autofocus and flash, there are a couple of photo gadgets to help you get the best possible photos. BestPic™ automatically takes 9 photos in rapid succession, so that you can choose the best one to keep. PhotoFix adjusts light balance and contrast after you have taken a picture to get the most natural looking result.
Another gadget that's included in the W902 is the Walk Mate step counter computer. This stays on all the time and counts how many steps you've taken during the day. You can monitor your daily activity and set targets. Just keep the phone in your pocket to keep counting. Did you know that 10,000 steps per day is the recommended target to stay fit? This is pretty hard for most people to achieve, so counting steps is a good way to motivate yourself to do more. Oh, sorry, are we starting to bore you? Back to the phone then.
The phone is pretty slimline as we mentioned earlier, so we're anticipating that the battery life won't be too amazing. If you're using 3G this might be the case, but switch to 2G and you'll have no problems at all. That may not be 100% satisfactory, but it's just the way that slimline 3G phones are. If you want a big battery, get a fat phone!
Connectivity options are Bluetooth and USB. There's no WiFi, so if that matters to you you should be looking at the Sony Ericsson C905 instead.
In conclusion, we really like the W902. It's a much better phone than the old W810i that we have such fond memories of, so if you're upgrading from an old Walkman, you can have confidence that this is a good one to choose. Why not 5 stars? Well, we wanted more memory and we think that the phone's pretty expensive. The memory problem is mostly overcome by the 8GB memory card included. The cost issue won't really apply to anyone buying on contract. So we're probably just being too fussy here. If you like the look of the phone, pretend that we rated it 5 stars and just get it!
