Excerpt: We loved this haute handset’s precursor, the equally slim (0.4-inch) W880i, and the update is even better. It’s slightly heavier and wider but still disappeared neatly in our front pocket. And even with a Mac, transferring audio tracks was drag-and-drop easy.
Pros: Brushed-silver finish fit for a Terminator. Smooth, improved keypad. 2-GB Memory Stick Micro included (phone holds up to 4 gigs). Vivid vid clips with crisp sound. Audio recorder.

Pros: slim with a pleasant appearance, good sound quality, there are back lid lockers, long battery life
Cons: No 3.5 mm jack, Limited camera capabilities, Insufficient integrated memory
