Any phone(not grey market ones) that you can buy in Hong Kong, their software are internationally compatible. Mainland China is a different story cause their government still didn't approve the use of 3G.
What you buy from HK for US$350 is the W910i; which is internationally compatible version ....not the same model as for mainland China!
Your statement is wrong & misleading! Pls. do some research before posting the next time.....
this phone is a triband UMTS/HSDPA phone.
This is a regular UMTS band phone.
Anyone care to clarify?
Also, SMAPE's review just sounds like it's from someone who overanalizes. It's good that it's from a different stand point, but sometimes it seems it causes for people to be a bit slow;
"(orange seems to be the trademark color of the Walkman series)"
And they seem to also lean in towards Nokia as well, patronizing them for using the 3.5mm jack as if it were man's first golden discovery, and it was just that simple, but not that amazing...
" Get what I mean? Use you brain! "
yeah right, so in what way is SMAPE review misleading?
550 ALL colors.
UK software, compatible internationally.
(the HK/CHINA software is never compatible with the US/CAD network for edge)
Havana Gold, White, Black & Red.
White/Gold are sold out, but are expected in the next shipment within the next two months. Put in a preorder for your phone before they run out of stock again!
I'm sorry for you guys in Europe that you have to pay such a high price for the same thing we purchase from SE shop or any chain electronic store in Asia! There is one service operator which give a 10% discount on SE & Nokia phones if purchased with "XXXX bank" credit card.
Unlike you, I trust myself only! Review are reviews; and that's someone elses opinion ....don't make it yours!!!
Any website or magazine or even individual can be paid off by manufacturers to write a better review of their product than they actually is! This kind of things happen much in this commerical & political world!
Get what I mean? Use you brain!
SMAPE review misleading? Well here in Europe the cheapest price at the moment is €360 (euro) which is about us$500. Unless if you buy it bundled, which means you're paying the same or more but in a different way. Maybe it's cheaper in USA.
In what other way they are misleading? Does your phone has a 3.5mm jack? Does your phone have dedicated music control? Does your phone have higher volume? Does your phone have a micro usb connctor? Of course no no no &no. It still has the stupid SE "fast port" and it's still stupidly on the side of your cell! SE has recently signed an agreement to standardize the connectors, but it's too late for w910.
I brought this phone from SE shop for only US$350!
Those guys at Smape.com sound like they are Nokia fans! Better wait for review from "gsmarena"(these guys are more trustworthy!).
Btw, Smape.com's information is misleading!!!.....they were just estimating the price of the W910i & N81, at US$500 & $350 respectively!
They were also testing pre-production phones only! Everything in Russia is a guess....even much worse than China!!!
After reading some comments i think this phone is for music fans only not for camera lovers.This days 2mp sucks man. They should bring 3.2 at least.
Sony Ericsson W910 speaker quality not enough good.my job is sell this phone to customer.but k850i speaker quality good enough w910i
If you can wait a couple months for the W960 then go for that. They said that the W950 could have been the IPhone killer but if the W960 has 8GB of memory, a 3 mp camera, light, auto rotate, touch screen etc. then it would be a serious contender for a top of the line smart phone (with touch screen) it is smaller than the Apple and does not tie you in to any network for an EIGHTEEN month contract. Gosh you could have two kids in that time!
Take it with you whenever wherever and it has a google maps positioning feature..
i have se w900 and i wanna buy new one cozz my phon is too bulky and i have it since two years and i love sony e phons do you advise me to buy the w910
for everyone's info, the file manager is located inside the menu's Organiser.
I try out the phone yesterday at singtel shop. The camera image is good. Sound is good. Im using SE w810 now when i try W910 yesterday i find it not used to the button. They dun have the back button will only need to click on the right navigation button for back. Then i think the viewing of picture in file manage they have change to more advance will need to check on the manual first on how to use it. Overall i simply love tat phone.
to bev - if it's so bulky and ugly then why did you even bother buying it!
just got the w910i in havana gold !!! its big bulky and ugly and i cant even find a review on it very disapointed :(
