Sony Ericsson W800i

Fri Aug 19, 2005 5:37 pm

Just bought this phone at the weekend - my goodbess what an awesome device. I don't usually gush over electronic purchases but this one has just changed it. Official Sony Walkman MP3 player (with 512megs card) inside, high quality 2 megapixel digi cam, brilliant user interface - it's just the best phone ever imho.

Sure the styling may not be to everyone's taste but if anyone is looking for a new phone this is the one to get.

I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I have to agree. My mom just got one. I'm trying to hatch a plan to steal it.
Are they available in the U.S.?

You assume correctly.

Dude thats strange, how does this person know what I write on here? This could be the fact that Ive lived in the United States of America since the ripe young age of 7.

My Polish is as exemplary on my English (Although my vulgar vocabulary is much more developed in Polish, though I suspect this has to do with the fact that the vulgar vocabulary in Polish IS MUCH MORE EXTENSIVE to begin with Silly ), and thats saying alot because I rocked the house and got a 36 on my ACT in English.

I have a SEk750i, and it's great. Its practically the same phone as the W800i, but you can't use the MP3 player when the phone is turned off. The camera produces great photos in good lighting conditions. Anyway, great phone!

Actaully you can flash your K750i with a frimware update that will give you the same firmware as the w800. So now you can listen to your tunes while your in the air. A lot websites offer this firmware service, but you have to have a special data cable, not the original DCU-60 that came with phone. This is where i bought my cable at.

EDIT
I forgot that DaVinci Team just started to offer flashing via the original DCU-60 cable that comes with the phone.

Yes, but if I do that, my one year warranty will no longer be valid i think.

The N91 seems nice, but I think it is too heavy for a phone, 160 grams. BTW some guy claims to have 5 Nokia N91 for sale here (swedish): http://www.blocket.se/view/5738068.htm?caller=vnl_s&l=0&c=1&city=0

I have a K750i and its just amazing. Plays Mp3's as well. the downside is that it did not come with a bigger memory stick. Only came with a 64MB memory stick duo.
Here are some photos i took with the phone.....
