Sony Ericsson W800i - Before Arrival

“I have been looking for a new mobile phone for a while now, and my new Sony Ericsson W800i arrives tomorrow. My thoughts before the phone arrives…”

Sony Ericsson W800i

For a while my Sony Ericsson T610 has been playing up and after waiting and waiting the W800i has finally arrived!. After arriving back home in the UK I had been meaning to look for a new phone, but after several trips around the mobile phone stores and sites I never really saw anything that came to my attention. Then SE released the K750i which I liked a lot and thought the perfect upgrade to the T610.

After visiting the SE Website to have a look at the Specs for the K750i, I saw the W800i was Coming Soon, after further inspection I knew this was the phone I had to have. The phone is Walkman™ branded which is cool, and better than any of that silly QuickShare stuff other models have on them. A CNET Review said:

When Sony created the revolutionary Walkman, music was suddenly portable. And now, years later after being eclipsed by MP3 players, the Walkman is back with the Sony Ericsson W800i. Though we were a bit skeptical at first, we learned there’s a lot to like about this device, most of which lies beneath the striking orange-and-silver design.

Things I like about the W800i

Some of the biggest features that sold me on this phone:

  • Music player
  • 34MB internal memory + 512MB Memory Stick PRO Duoâ„¢
  • FM radio
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • Speakerphone

Part 2 coming soon

The phone is expected to arrive tomorrow, I’ll be sure to continue this story when I have the phone in my hand.
