Excerpt: Back when Sony Ericsson first announced the Aspen smartphone, a Windows Mobile 6.5.3, in early February 2010, we wondered whether the QWERTY-equipped handset would have enough room to make its mark before Microsoft launched Windows Phone 7 by the end of the year. Now, five months later and even closer to the new platform’s debut, the window of opportunity for the Aspen is even smaller.
Excerpt: I bought the Sony Ericsson Aspen for my husband for his birthday and after learning everything about it, he loves it! I love how small it is. One thing he didn't like was that the battery was tough to get out. Hopefully they'll fix that in future models. I love how the screen is a touchscreen and you get the pull-out stylus, which is really neat. I feel very comfortable typing text messages on this tiny phone. They make it easy.
Summary: Phone is excellent, my type, but battery is bad bad bad...can't make even 24h, even without vibration, without playing music, games, video or similar...just for talk and messaging and sometimes WI-FI... I ordered another battery, so we'll see how it's going to be...really like the phone, just need better battery...
Summary: The Aspen itself is a pretty neat phone. It has the Windows mobile feel, battery is decent, and there aren't many reasons for it to shut down randomly. I used it in the U.S. so there was no data option but it does work with AT&T as a call/text type cell. The wifi abilities allows you to use the internet so that helps but some wifi routers are too complex for you to sign in with. I used it at my college and for some reason I couldn't always get it to connect.
