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 .
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.
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).
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.
Conclusion: Das Sony Ericsson W850i ist ein sehr gutes Gerät der Walkman-Serie. Es bietet erstmals alle Features in einer schönen und handlichen Slider-Form. Auch wenn es das erste Slider Gerät aus dem Hause Sony Ericsson ist, so wartet es doch mit einem erstaunlich guten und robusten Slider-Mechanismus auf.
