i think the only advantage of this phone over IPod 5th Gen. is the walkman, OS and Phone combo.. but then storage capacity is far behing the Ipod,.. but anyway the sound quality just match it.. and video quality is toaly alot better(screen wise first)... this would be an Ipod Killer...
will this handset be compatible with T-mobiles web & walk package? Is there any chance of downloading msn? I'm currently using the Vario ii.
I do hope SE will intro WLAN fuction to their upcoming new design phone. It must have and useful.
I am also curious on an extension with wifi.. it is a must indeed...
I think that phone rocks, it's really somethin U could dream for. Only if it was with a 16.7M colors display and there was WiFi it would be (may be 3.2 Mpix cam, but I don't rally need it :)) this could be then new James Bond cell :D Unfortunately the price is about 600Euro, which is too much for the standart here... May be I won't have the chance to own it :((((
Any news on a plug on WiFi adapter for this? Does anyone know exactly what it would take to make this phone WiFi?
This SE is really nice. Like the UiQ+WalkMan combo. Hope it won´t outprice itself.
Since cameras aren't so much sought after these days,why can't sony ericsson introduce a wlan version of the w950i?
I use a nokia 6630.My friend uses a se p990i.I have not really been impressed by that p990.This w950i should be better,the only thing missing is wlan which nowadays is a musthave.
I’ve tested it today from a friend from SE. I had it for about 6h so there wasn’t much time to go deeper in menu. Voice from speakers is god, enough loud to enjoy the music. Very impressive was the screen, movies on it looked sharp and realistic. Menu works fast, but larger programs like games load a bit long (well it’s symbian:). Working with stylus is very comfortable. 15mm that is a very good thing! No problems with hiding it in any pocket... The whole construction is well made, no moving parts...Interesting thing is the keyboard, it is like if you were clicking the keys hidden under some kind of rubber, very unusual experience, needs time to accept it:)
This phone does not have wifi.
The sound is said to be better than the old walkman phones.
there is no camera but it`s a 3G phone
I tested the phone yesterday and was amazed!
The guy that worked for sonyericcson said it would come out by the end of this month!
It has been delayed due to software problems
nut now it`s ok.
and that guy talking about jam sandwich...hm?
hi all,,, did anyone listen to the sound from this phone ???? i have a w800 and its sound loses for w550. pls tell me if it has got better sound. thanks in advance.
has it got wifi as it has opera 8 it would be nice to download and surf the net for free.
Think of the phone this way its an Ipod that can make phone calls and download mp3 direct without the need to plug it into a pc or mac. as for the comments on the N91 Bah i owned that phone for a week its total crap its huge heavy and noisy. The N73 Music ed is much better. without the camera the W950i will still be a killer probuct as its bringing mobile phones and Mp3 players closer together if you wanna camera get the K800i. I work for Vodafone retail so i get to test all these products before there launched and this one is wicked. a much buy for any music lover.
You don't need camera to use 3G;but you're right that we can't do real time video calling.For this feature you need not only one but 2 cameras.
But still you can receive video conf.
No camera doesn't mean no 3G.
There are some 3G phones without camera and also which have only 1 camera in the markt.
Sony Ericsson W950 is a lovely and a fine phone. I think the phone is not 3G compatible as it's does not have a camera features in it,3G is all about bringing wireless transmission speeds, which allow full motion video, high-speed internet access and video-conferencing.
My opinion is that any phone that does not have camera features on it can not be 3G compatible.
