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...

a new walkman phone leaked
SE, 10 Jul 2008Um... NOT ALL SE phones have the 2 piece earphone with 3.5mm adaptor just the plain earphon... moreOnce again you have demonstrated your intelligence to the world. I never said anything about ALL SE phones having the adaptor, I said all WALKMAN phones. Might help if, in the future, you actually read what you're about to criticize...
will there b a moble of this in slideit loks smart out side bt the buttions could b better
Wasn't the SE W960i hyped as being the ultimate Walkman phone?
Most of us know what a dead duck that phone turned out to be. The W960i Walkman's sound quality was disappointingly average.
How do we know the W980i will be no different when it finally arrives?
Yes, 450 euros in preorder----I can read, ypu know.I tried to include the web name but the post never came out, if you are interested,check with google.It's an international online shop,every tiem I wanto to include the na,me of the shop--nothing to do with me, of course, the moderatos erases my posts.
Features are very similar to the W890i that was recently released!
Being a "Walkman" phone, SE included a 3.2megapixal camera but no flash or autofocus, again, similar to the W890i.
It is meant to be a media player phone but at least include the flash AND the autofocus especially for the price!
Based on the estimated figures for the cost, it's darn Pricey!

Too many SE Fanboys here!

Not ALL SE phone included the headphones with adapter!
For example, own the P1i and it came with standard earphones with the proprietary plug!
The earphones sound like crap!
Had to buy a simple 3.5mm adaptor to use the darn media player in the P1i with standard headphones!
Sony is one company that still holds out in using their proprietary port for charging and for using headphones instead of using the industry standard mini USB port for charging and 3.5mm port for headphones!
Goodness! Many of you weren't even aware that SE does NOT included the 2 piece earphone set with some models!
You'll notice that many people especially online phone reviewers have critisized this
fact in nearly every review!
