Great music phone.. but i dont like the fact tt there is no onboard 3.5mm jack.. without specific ports/jack for the specific functions there will be alot of wear and tear.. take my K750i for example.. i used the fast port for listening to music all the time and now my headphones jack fits loosely in the port.. touch keypad is a good way to keep dust out of the phone.. like my K750i the dust is collecting in there.. lastly the "missing" camera doesnt bother me much.. u cant expect a phone to carry everything.. if it does then why is there a need to produce better products? the phone is made in such a way so as not the overshadow the other products se has made..
Do you sincerely think that when designing this phone, SE's team were not in posesion of the technology or forgot to equip the phone with a camera?!?! be fair... What they did had a purpose... "SE wants to divide its market"...
Phones for MusicLovers(W series), phones for those who needs a good camera(K Series), PDA phones(P Series), etc and phones which suits everyone but partially(as most phones on the market currently does)...
In doing so, it enabled "MusicLovers" to have the same phone without a camera but a touchscreen and a better access to menus for the same price...
Some people says that at least, the phone should have been equipped with a simple camera... can you imagine BMW selling its berlines with 13" rims and a radio caset player... or the latest HP laptop equipped with a 8X cd drive... got it?? A high-end product can't have something not-high-end in it... But if producers keeps adding and improoving all features in phones, customers will have to keep paying for the features...
A camera is not a NEED for someone who wants to have his phone and his iPod Nano in a single device... so why should he be forced to pay for it... then if you think i'm wrong, the P series(P910) is for you... and if you can't afford the P-series, go for a nokia, Moto or "old" SE...
This is how i see it, take some courage coz i've written a quite a lot...
When SE announces a phone but which will not be equiped with a camra, people starts to cry... Some start to ask "wats the point in bringing out a phone without a camera now a days... blablabla..." and why did you stay quiet when nokia launched the 1101 last year??? phone with monochrome display, cristal clear monophonic ringtones, no camera... Because this phone was actually "outdated", and useless if you are a TechyGuy, but this is not the case of the SE W950, it is far from something outdated...
Now imagine Apple announces its last generation of iPods... The "iPod VideoTouchPhone"... An iPod with a great sound quality, a 4gb memory, plays video, allows you to view pictures, has btooth to transfer files, HAS A TFT TOUCHSCREEN 256K DISPLAY, and runs on a Symbian OS and even allows you to make phone calls and send messages... Great, isn't it???
But this is what SE has planned to be selling soon...
I think SE is right... Do you sincerely think that when designing this phone, SE's team were not in posesion of the technology or forgot to equip the phone with a camera?!?! be fair... What they did had a purpose... I'd explained this in the next post, you may have a look...
well for one thing i have heard that this phone will cost between 300 to 400 bucks thats pretty steep for a cell phone and i heard that after a few months of extensive use the numbers will wear off but other than that this should be a kick ass phone with the touch screen and everything
People don't understand that this phone is like a BlackBerry phone, and they DO NOT have cameras.
Damn!!! That cell is awesome. But it would hve been the best cell ever if it had a cam.
In fact, it should be having a cam of 2-3 mega pixels, but i think they went for touch screen display instead of a cam.
wow what a lovley looking phone i want one. sod the camra just look at at, i mean id marry that well if i was a girl phone.
Wats the point in bringing out a phone without a camera now a days. everyone is looking for a better camera and bluetooth.
I hear rumblings that 3 Australia may be getting this phone. Can anyone confirm that?
of cource its a great phone, and I agree that they are probably targeting a different segment... BUT if it had a cam like lets say W800, it would be probably the best phone. Still I give it to SE coz i bet they have in mind that if they put a cam everybody will want this :)
P.S. I probably won't buy it coz of the cam thing
P.S.S what with the 3G if now cam???
I really like this phone. Tis ashame there is no camera, but the features look fantastic. Maybe SE will bring out an attachment camera for this phone.
This handset appeals to a very large market, people working in government buildings that can't have camera phones!! I, for one am very happy about this! Can't wait for it to hit the Australian market.... so i can sell heaps of them and make heaps of commision!! Go SE!!!!
I have a w800i but this is the phone that I really want. I would rather have a TV phone or an AM radio phone than a camera phone. Why did it take so long for them to start making phones without cameras?
this fone wud prob b se`s best ever if u put in a few mp camera 2 appeal 2 more ppl
I Really think that this is the phone i want to buy. Camera Cardslot??? Why ? I have my own camera and the cardslot? Don't need that one.
The only thing i miss a wlan.
But a fast blueT will compare that.
Only the N91 from Nokia can com close to the W950i. You Know nokia its a big phone.
So Sonyericsson you did it best.
When o when is it for sale.
