Excerpt: Just the way a whole lot of peeps were waiting for the P990i to rock their world, an equal number of Sony Ericsson fanbois have been eagerly looking out for the top-of-the-line Walkman phone, the W950. Now that it's finally here, let's see if it is really worth the wait. The Sony Ericsson W950i is the first Walkman-branded smartphone, running SymbianOS v9.1 UIQ 3.0, in the market. It is based on the M600i, which we reviewed (and weren't terribly impressed by) earlier.
Excerpt: After Samsung and Nokia announced the SGH-i300 and N91 Sony Ericsson announces the new W950i an integrated mobile telephony music device, the first of its kind in the market with touchscreen.

Excerpt: As youth today flirt with multitude of technological options and fine themselves nicely ensconced to great opportunities available in terms of gaming, mobiles and other products. The Sony Ericsson W950 is another product added to the family of modern technology.
