Excerpt: One of the things I’ve always admired about Sony Ericsson (SE) is the craftsmanship that goes into the design of its handsets. There are exceptions of course. Many manufacturers don’t bother to integrate new technologies into either the handset or the OS, so the main thing is to see if the existing functions work well. Form Factor The mocha brown W890 looks classy from any angle. It’s been a while since I came across an SE with normal keys, so this is a welcome change.

Conclusion: We are left with positive feelings about the Sony Ericsson W890. It is a nice, light and slim Walkman, which would satisfy even the most capricious music fans. In addition, thanks to the high-speed UMTS you can check your mail or your RSS feeds, which interest you.

Summary: Despite having 40-chord polyphony onboard, the W890i breaks no new grounds in the way MP3 tunes sound, as compared to other Sony Ericsson branded devices. The overall volume of this phone is pretty average, although occasionally you might miss calls while on a busy street. Honestly, the W890i just doesn’t deliver in terms of volume level at times, but we didn’t expect it even to have this in the first place.
Summary: A stylish, classy exterior with excellent build quality, just 10mm thin and boasting an superior keypad and controls despite its compact size. Add HSDPA support and an excellent user interface to the mix and the W890i is almost perfect.
