Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson W810i will make a photo buff happy and keep music junkies jazzed. The phone has a great user interface, is easy to use and is attractive. Most important, it has very good voice quality and reception.
Pros: Smaller form factor that feels very nice in the hand and a fashionable black body that will appeal to a wider audience than the W600i’s bright orange. 2.0 megapixel camera that takes great photos and videos, with strong camera software that has an excellent UI. Good phone reception. A nice set of software both on the phone and the PC make it easy to rip and transfer music tracks. Bluetooth is solid for transferring files and working with Bluetooth headsets. Very nice ...
Cons: The backlight on the number pad could be brighter around the edges. The limited features in the WAP browser won’t be attractive to the web surfers who need more than WAP content.
Excerpt: I have wanted this cell phone since I first tested it some time ago. It has quad-band, perfect for US and Europe. If I am on a business trip abroad I can switch over to a pay- as- you-go European carrier and avoid roaming charges. The Sony Ericsson has features galore. I can access my e-mail, send video messages, access the Web, take pictures, listen to the MP3 player and FM radio. The cost is at an all time low. It sells for $229-$259, depending on the retailer.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson W810i: Being the pioneer of mobile phones with walkman capabilities, Sony Ericsson still leads the mp3 marathon. Sony Ericsson gained a lot of market with the introduction of W800. W810i is the next one in the assembly line. The W810i enriched kit provides you everything to run the cell phone smoothly. This 97gram device fits well in anybody's palms with dimensions 100x46x19.5 mm. W810i comes in only one color and that is charcoal black.
Conclusion: Try listening to the embedded Walkman with the new Sony Ericsson W810i mobile. Surprisingly we think this would make a great change to the traditional dowdy corporate mobile and at a much lower cost than a smartphone.
Excerpt: As they say in some parts of the world: It's all that and a bag of chips. The Sony Ericsson W810i is truly a fantastic phone. It offers a great Walkman music app, a 2MP auto-focus camera, and a superb UI. It is our new favorite handset.
Summary: In fact, I see no reason in replacing the K750i/W800i with the new model, if only you need EDGE or the fourth band – GSM850. Other characteristics are comparable and my advice is to wait for the next model. It will provide more improvements including hardware ones. If you like carrying out experiments with software, know that software for the W810i is impossible to install on the K750i/W800i for handsets are physically different.
Summary: There is no need to upgrade if you already own the previous W800i, but if not, you could do a lot worse than choosing the W810i. Once again, Sony Ericsson has got it spot on with a comprehensive handset full of the latest features, all wrapped in an attractive package. Fantastic.
Pros: Walkman Function, Great list of multimedia features, Excellent User interface, Memory Stick, Extensive PIM Functions,
Cons: Controls may be a little small in size for some
