They have only implemented the stuff they should have been putting in a long time ago - like 3,5mm jack and wifi. And they have only buckled to pressure coz sales are crashing in this recession. It looks good but its still nothing special: nothing there that you wont get on a Nokia N95, N85, N96 - besides the 8mp camera which is overkill - tranfering 8mp pics via bluetooth will just be a pain!!! Plus its still a "dumb" fone. No operating sys. I'd go for the w795 or g 705 - this w995 seems rather unecessary..... If the price is less than an N85, i would go for it, but given SE's penchant for overpricing their "W" branded handsets - i very much doubt that! Plus where is the fm transmitter - on a music phone this feature makes sense!
Sony Ericsson also announced that they are planning of hitting the video playback from various angles by not only focusing W995 on video, but by providing unlimited movies downloads via the PlayNow Arena Movies service, which would require a monthly subscription.
By this do they ment that they are going to improve the video playback of the W995? ( i hope)
Or are they just going to improve the PlayNow Downloadservice?
I just dont know why are they waiting so long to get it on the market. Why dont keep it as secret and then get it on the market. This is the same as W705 which still isnt avaible and now i found this one. Man i hate waiting. But i still think this is a great phone and hope that wont be too much expensive.
The phone body is made of brushed Alu...
Nice looking and resistable...
Where do they keep the "stereo speakers" in this handset? Maybe under the call/hang up keys like in W760...
plz i want to know if the body is made with metal or plastic, plz someone should help. i am waiting thankx
how i wish this phone will be in the market today here in amsterdam, i am ready to give away my SE g705 to get w995, plz SE u people should release the phone soonest don't keep me waiting till Q2 of the year 2009
darebe, 16 Feb 2009does it have video call?Of course, you can see it in the pictures!!!
I genuinely dislike SE. Their UI is not good, and design is less than average. I have never found myself considering to buy SE mobile when I'm in a shop. BUT AFTER SAYING ALL THIS, I THINK W995 IS A NICE PHONE!! SE finally has won ONE vote from me~ (if that even matters...lol)
