I have been waiting for a long time for this because I love clamshells and I want a god walkman.Sliders are my best second choice( w910 and w850 I have too)...but if this is 3'2 megap(shamefully lacking the sad AF, shhh) and Clear audio, clamshell and memory, good battery....this is what I always wanted from SE.
But it should have had AF
Anonymous, 17 Jul 20082.2" is fine are YOU blind?I should have asked "MOST" of SE walkman lack big display. Not this one.
erm...it seem like very nice...and sony ericsson seldome have flip phone...and this design is a bit unique..
All SE walkman phone lack three things 1)a relatively good camera with flash 2)3.5 mm audio output 3)bigger display......Is SE blind?

Anonymous, 15 Jul 2008Its due out for release on 28th July 08. Looking forward to it.is there any link showing that?
do you know this shop?
Although I agree with the 3.5mm jack, the point is that the adapter is much more convinient. The phone is supposed to be a phone and a music player. If you want to use your own headphones with the adapter you can, but if you had the 3.5mm jack you could not use a microphone cable and your headphones simulataneously. If you use the adapter which comes with ALL Walkman phones, then you can use your own headphones and answer phone calls at the same time without having to switch headsets. BTW, the phone was just voted the best sounding mp3 player of any on the market by an independent German test house. iPod incidentally was number 6.
I'd like to add that a 3.5mm headphone jack would be a bonus. But it was never the deciding factor for me.
I would most likely be using bluetooth headphones via a2dp anyways, I don't like being tangled up with cords.
Dan, 30 Jun 2008To those replying to SE Owner, granted the phone can use any headphone using the adaptor its j... moreThank you for your support!
Glad to see I'm not the only one that would prefer SE to include an actual 3.5mm port in their Walkman phones. Many other users and phone reviewers on other websites have addressed similar thoughts!
Not ALL SE phones include the adapter headsets but appears that the Walkman, W, series do.
Sorry for any confusion!
This is a nice phone, but much of the hype is gone since it was shown in February. I've been on preorder since May, but now it's been pushed back to August. Given Sony's release schedule, this phone will most like be out in October-November. Hopefully there is an international model that includes HSDPA for the US.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2008since you've been banging for a flash, the w902 has a photoflash plus a 5 megapix camCould be really cool if this is genuine, but it looks too much like a V640 to be anything real. Guess we'll need to wait til july the 22nd to find out...
