hey guys, dont you get it.. why SE phone is more durable than nokia.. because they take their time building a fine handset. they dont release it just for fame. they just release it because it would help people find their true love..(if thats not to exaggerated). yes nokia release some fine phones too.. but Sony delivers a fine tune gadget with the power and durability of Ericsson. as we all know(some of us dont).. the older phones of ericsson what so tough that you could even drop them from the 2nd floor but still works fine except for scratches and bruises. regarding the symbian OS. yeah nokia has higher version of symbian OS but why most of nokia phone hangs up. even though later version of symbian phone are speedy compared to older OS. but the thing is , on how they are packed. yeah nokia has some great stuff that you dont actually use. so why bother paying on something you wouldnt use at all. regarding the SE 3.2 and nokia's 5 megapixel. actually 3.2 and 5 mb only compared in size. but their quality depend on the camera component installed on the unit. since Sony has a great deal with camera, eg. cybershot. they have a great quality pictures compared to nokia neither 2.0,3.2 or 5 mb pixel camera is installed. ok ok.. nokia has this 16m colors. that would make your graphical interface neat but it would not affect the capturing quality of the camera. So even it release this on november or december i would be likely buying this phone than nokia. since nokia fails to compensate with my needs.
This phone better be priced competively. I'll pay nomore than $500. The more I wait, the more I am looking into the Nokia 81. The more I look at the N81, the more appealing and underrated it is compared to this phone. Wifi 802.11"b" is only capable of 11mbps. The cam is better on the W960, but neither carry Xenon... which makes them a bit pointless at night. Xenon is the only thing that separates SE cameraphones with Nokias. Once Nokia puts Xenon in future handsets (ala N82), there would be no contest between Nokia & SE anymore.
i'd like to see one sony with 16m colors but i seem that they'd never do that.by the way what relly like on this is the battery life. great phone
Sony Ericsson better come out with the mobile soon or else they might have a lot of people shifting manufacture's which is going to bad for they business.
I really like what this phone has to offer,but Apple is also going to launch the iPhone soon in India and that's going to be some good competition.
"Come on Sony Ericsson what are you waiting for?".
eh, why not saying that all phones copied from nokia's antenna? Nokia is the first to came out with that. SE with a TV out? the processor could take that load? this phone could talk like 9hrs, i wonder how slow the CPU is ? -_-
by the way, if you would say that nokia copy here and there, what about sony?
SE, copy 5MP too. wana copy nokia's 30fps but it's resolution is 4times lower then n95. -_-
Screen, copy nokia's old models? using 0.2million colours? and wifi as well!
and also copying 8GB of memory o.0
use your brain and think before writing comments which could get yourself shoot right back on your head! sigh -_-
oh and i forgot to tell you. its comin in a month or two. =] after i get the phone myself. i will tell you guys how it is.
i already got hook up with this phone. i'm not sure about the greatness it says it is. but i played with it before and its fine. everything is fine. yu realli dont need that much of a memory when yu already have 8gb. its like the iphone i guess. i never played with the iphone so i wouldn't knoe. touch screen, music player, and average cam. to bad the phones they have in korea is not international. they have the best camera and everythin so high tech. and its the truth. you can search for it and tell me i'm wrong.
This is to all the Guys and Girls who are upset about the apparent "low" colour variance the w960 has:
Sony Ericsson don't equip their phones with 16M colour screens because they consume more power and so zaps battery life.
The other point that has to be realised is the fact that the human eye cannot distinguish between 256K and 16M colours on a screen thats 2.5 inches across! (SE probably know this already!)
A Tiger, on the other hand, has got excellent eyesight compared to humans so they would definately benefit from a screen of 16M colour definition! ;-)
Another point I would like to make is: whether you have a 3Mp or 5Mp camera on either SE, Nokia, Samsung, etc. handsets, they all capture images in True-colour (16 Million colours) format so when they are diplayed on a computer screen or printed out, they'll all have the same vibrace.
I hope this clears up a few arguments, but I have a feeling it'll just cause more hehe! :-)
audiojackmandory, what's the big deal? It comes with a standard jack built into the supplied headphone lead, if you're not happy with that, buy a short adaptor of ebay, they only cost a couple of quid.
Hello Sony!It's a walkman phone,audio jack should be mandatory!I don't want to use your included crappy earbuds
Audio jack please!!!!On all current walkman phones!!!!!!!!!!
OoHh!!! what a SE phone... I'm sure I'll grab one when it is available already... this phone really siuts my taste...come on SE, im waitin 4 U!!!yeah!!!
with a memory that big who needs a memory stick? this is big and awesome...

Regarding 16 million colors being better than 256K colors. The display does not show 16 million colors all the time, only when using the camera. Screen display quality depends on resolution, pixel size and pitch, refresh rates, etc. And for all practical purposes, on small screen sizes of mobile phones you cannot really appreciate the difference. Agree though that Nokia displays perform better under sunlight.
About 5 MP camera being better than 3.2 MP camera, totally disagree.... Yes, 5 MP means more resolution than 3.2 but that does not guarantee better quality of pictures. It depends on quality of sensor, the optics, and in-camera processing of photos taken. Nokia phone pics look good on phone because they are over-processed and the contrast is enhanced, but they don't look as well on PC. Sony camera/phone pics look good on PC and for printing because they produce more natural colors and tones. The focusing of SE camera is real good and fast and accurate. And coming back to megapixels, more MP means more larger size you can enlarge the pic and take bigger prints without the image getting blurred or having digital zoom effect. No guarantee of better image quality.
The user interface of SE feature phones is the best I have seen. Once you use it, u'll love it, way better than Nokia even with its Symbian smartphones.
The implementation of features on SE phones is really good and tested. All the features that are given work really well without any issues, such as Bluetooth, GRPS/EDGE, Internet, USB, etc. Most of their phones have really good battery life.
Only grudge against SE is they usually ignore EDGE. In future they should give both EDGE and 3G combined on all their models. They should understand that not all countries have rolled out 3G services, especially here in India. And please don't leave out autofocus on your 2MP or higher Walkman series phones. The quality of your cameras really deserves autofocus feature together and LED flash also.
Yes, I am a SE phone fan and for good reason to....they deserve it having earned it.
dis phone is cmng out within a week....... cheers ppl...................
yep i see that se so903 itv phome with
bravia screen om the website, but its ONLY for the japanese market it will never b released over here til the networks upgrade there systems that can actually handle digital tv broadcasting thats why the nokia N92 tv phone that had a built in freeview reciever was never avaliable in the uk market.
This I reckon is going to be a Xmas no.1 as long as sufficient units ship in time. We're reckoning on getting them in stock by end of November; definitely my next handset methinks.
