Excerpt: Sony Ericsson's first Walkman phones were normal compact handsets with improved music player programs, large Memory Sticks and copious amounts of Walkman branding. The W950i is different. It's a proper smartphone, based on the UIQ edition of the Symbian operating system and operated with a touch screen and stylus. It's a great-looking handset, too. It's slim and light with clean lines, and even the orange detailing is tasteful.
Excerpt: Most Sony Ericsson Walkman phones have room for around 120 songs in their 512MB of memory, but the W950i can fit over 1,000 in its 4GB of internal storage. It's also a fully-fledged smartphone with a touchscreen and stylus. The W950i is a slim, good-looking phone and its sleek looks are helped by the recessed keypad. Unfortunately, this is one of the phone's weak points. The keys are hard to press and rapid texting is difficult.
