Conclusion: Overall: The Sony Ericsson W850 does provide a lot of functions and presents itself very well with regards to its appearance. The hefty price tag might put off a lot of its target market though, especially with the absence of EDGE support . But truth be told, the Walkman feature alone is enough for almost everyone when deciding on a purchase.
Excerpt: Before the announcement of Sony Ericsson K790/K800, there was much info of any kind on the upcoming phone. Now the situation is the same with a new Walkman phone, which might be called the W850. You can come across the photos of the model in the Internet, however their adequacy is under question.Unlike the W800i, the first announced Walkman phone, the W850i looks to have either a twist form factor like the S700 series.
Summary: What happens when you put manufacturer of portable music player Sony together with mobile phone manufacturer Ericsson? You get Sony Ericsson (well, you are probably acutely aware of the brand already). Maker of the WALKMAN series of mobile phones that include the evergreen W800, W600, and W900 for music lovers who also need a mobile phone, Sony Ericsson is right up there in the pecking order of manufacturing music inclined communication handsets which are unsurprisingly...
Summary: Despite the polyphony being 40-tone, the handset does not provide
a breakthrough in sounding of mp3 tunes as compared to other Sony
Ericsson branded phones. The loudspeaker is average volume-wise
and has a great part of basses in its sounding, so the call is easily
heard even on the street. The silent alarm is of moderate power
or even slightly higher than this, but even this admission isn’t
an excuse for cases when it is too weak to be felt.
