Why do people claim to "know" when the phone will be released when it states december on the manufacturer's website which i would say is the most reliable source instead of joe bloggs opinion. sorry to rant btw.
Well Nicee Phonee! Deffo Gettin It. Wonder How Much It Will Be.. =S Haha. =]
very bad promising...
everybody waiting sooooo long for this mobile....how come they do like dat to uss.....
Ah, my mistake. Memory is flash.
Still, with 4gb Memory Stick Micros the memory really isn't very appealing. Memory Stick Micros are really small so if you use a proper mobile case you can always carry an extra memory with you (I do this) and voila you'll have 8gb memory for practically nothing. I'm not bashing SE, I love them and the W960 is awesome. But it's important not to be carried away with the hype and really test a phone like this thouroghly before a purchase.
hey "DaMan", it's not a hdd, it's flash.
and to whoever mentioned it, it doesnt need EDGE as it's got 3g and wifi.
the w960i launch when its lovers change their minds to buy nokia n95 8gb how much more time this mobile takes
Good phone, frustrated delays. This phone should not be posted on this
web page if Sony does not give a time frame of release.
When would be this released already waited too long for this.would get an unlocked iphone today.. good bye se 960
Good Phone but some features missing such as infra red
Secondly the zoom is only 3X
WLan is only 802.11b
I'd recommend testing this phone thoroughly before buying it due to some obvious shortcomings that might occur.
First, harddisks are often very unstable compared to flash memories and with flash memories up to 4gb I wouldn't buy this phone for the available memory.
Also, if you're listening to music and the harddisk is shaken the music will stutter. This does not happen with flash memories.
Second, the touch interface is basically the same as on the P1 so if you've tried the P1 and wasn't happy don't expect to like this. I personally hate the P1 so I'll stay away from the w960. You even have to question the need for a touch-screen on this device. It doesn't really have any practial application. The screen is also washed out compared to other SE phones so keep that in mind.
With the back button removed, the lack of a d-pad and the bad touch interface you can expect navigation to be a pain in the @!#!
The main advantages on this phone (Wi-Fi, 8GB HDD, music player, FM-radio, auto-focus camera) can easily be experienced on other phones such as the P1 or the k850 with some minor differences. For example the k850 could be an even better (and cheaper)alternative with a 4gb Memory Stick Pro duo. The turbo-3G will allow fast web-browsing and it has a much better camera and design, not to mention its awesome media center and great music player.
Availability: This item is due to be released on November 12, 2007. Please note that release dates are subject to change. Dispatched from and sold by Amazon.co.uk.
On pre order from Amazon, They want £420 PAY&GO. I dont think so, id rather keep my phone now and get a pair of Cavalli Jeans. Thanks but NO THANKS!!!
Money Making Scheme....
SE are keeping this phone to be relaesed in december simply because more people will buy it as it is xmas so many people who want this phone but could not be able to get mid year will most probably get it as a present and most contract phones are bought for christmas so they will be able to upgrade around this time. SE are just keeping u hangin on and taking your money after you have waited along time.
This phone is coming out in december. it says so on the SE website and even on the carphone warehouse site, under COMING SOON phones. But why did tthey anounse the 5mp phone in june and is available now either pay&go and contract, when this phone was anounsed the same month but is not availabe till december - about 2 months later! why ??
Sorry folks but this unit will not be available this month or December as you contested. The earliest, as I have said, would be 1st quarter of 2008. I'm an SE fanatic and using most of SE's high-end phone (i.e. all P-series). You know why? N95 & N95 8gb still making a huge money in the market (particularly the N95 8gb) and if SE is going to release this unit alongside with these 2 Nokia N-series, SE will be loosing tremendously because W960 is no match to N95 8gb giant. January or February 2008 is the best month to launch W960 as no N-series is due for release early next year, OKAY??? Anyway, just to calm you down, if W960 will be launched worldwide next month (Dec.), then fine.
