Excerpt: Sony Ericsson launched a new Walkman phone the W880/W888 , having only 9.4mm thin, the W880 is the thinnest 3G phone from Sony Ericsson and combines the Walkman phone experience with a device that fits easily into your pocket.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson W880i: The sleek and slim design always impresses the cell phone buyers. This gave rise to the competition to introduce the slimmest cell phone a company can manufacture. Sony Ericsson provided its version of slimmest cell phone with introduction of W880i.
Excerpt: This phone is so sweet; you might be tempted to scarf it down. Don’t! The W880i is capable of so much more than just giving you nasty gastrointestinal pain. Besides being dead sexy with its striking metallic and rubberized case, and nearly as thin (9.5 mm!
Pros: Clear, precise sound from music player. Works perfectly as a phone. Buttons are spaced evenly apart and provide good force feedback. Nearly inexhaustible battery. 3G Web browser is quick and easy to access. Includes 1GB Memory Stick Micro. Transferring music is simple process of click and drag.
Cons: Included earbuds are so bad, they must be a practical joke from Sony. AC adapter and headset plug into the same port-so in order to charge the phone and listen to music simultaneously, you need to awkwardly piggyback the two. (Unless you’re synched up to a set of dorky Bluetooth headphones.)
Comparative review of music phones Samsung F300 and Sony Ericsson W880i
24 April 2007
Summary: Let’s take and look at the final table and crown the winner.
SonyEricsson W880i wins by a small margin here, though it could have even more solid lead, if only I had mentioned Internet and mailing (where the F300 doesn’t do great and lacks mailing features at all), and some other amenities.
Conclusion: Sony Ericsson W880 is an odd telephone: intended to be used for music, it has fewer features in common with the cybershot models, which impairs its functionality, though. And despite the music orientation, there is the striking inadequateness of not having an FM radio and stereo speakers, a...
Pros: Thin body and solid construcion, Very good keyboard, TrackID gives excellent responce, 3G UMTS
Cons: Lack of FM radio, Only tri-band GSM, The camera is worse than the one of the first Walkman (W800)
Summary: Sony Ericsson is really gaining momentum and you need only look at its growing portfolio of “Cyber Shot” and “WALKMAN” series of mobile phones to appreciate their offensive. By tapping into existing technologies from Sony’s Cyber shot and WALKMAN products Sony Ericsson has been able to roll out...
Summary: Despite the polyphony having 40 chords in the W880, the handset does not provide a breakthrough in sounding of mp3 tunes compared to other Sony Ericsson branded phones. The speaker is average volume-wise and sounds pretty good, however its sonic merits fall flat while on the street – in fact the...
Summary: The Sony Ericsson W880i is the slimmest Walkman phone yet, at just 9.4mm. It feels good in the hand, with a front stainless-steel veneer and a rear soft-paint finish adding to its tactile nature. It feels feather light, at just 71g.
Cons: Watch out for the itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie keypad. Some of you might not be able to live with it.
