Personal Electronics buzz
24 October 2008
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson W760i is a high-end Sony Walkman phone. The W760 has been in the UK for some time and several friends gave it a thumbs up for performance. The 2.2-inch display appears to be like any other quad-band GSM cell phone. It is a notch above with HSDPA, EDGE and UMTS network compatibility. The organization or menu screen takes the user to an extraordinary music and camera function as well as the address and tools of the W760.
Excerpt: The W760 Walkman is a mid-level multimedia phone from Sony Ericsson. It sports a good looking slider design as well as all of the basic features needed to keep people today happy - even GPS. Brad spent some time with it and put together this review for us.
Summary: The W760i’s ring tones are reasonably loud and won’t let you down in most environments, nor will its reception quality. The vibro alert is a tad above average strength-wise.
The phone is set to hit the market early in May and will retail for around 650 USD, which makes quite a contrast with the W910i’s ever-falling price of 500-550 USD.
