A Walkman Phone : Sony-Ericsson W300i phone

 

A mobile phone is no longer judged solely on its telephony merits; PDA, photographic and entertainment aspects are needed to bolster the package.

With its clamshell design, small shape and black sheen, this has to be a mobile phone. However it is the emblazoned metallic orange "W." on the front of the device that marks this as one of Sony Ericsson's Walkman phones. In fact the subject of this...

Sony Ericsson W300i/Z530i

 

Sony Ericsson has been actively positioning itself as a manufacturer, producing Walkman handsets line-up, as a result systematically widened this product line. Another logical step in making these handsets mass solutions is introduction of a...

The phone has 40-tone polyphonic ring tones, but there's no difference in mp3 playback when compared to K750, except for improved volume. Vibrating alert power is average, sometimes you might not feel it. The network reception quality is great,...

Sony Ericsson W300i

 

One of the first Walkman MP3 clam shell phones from Sony Ericsson the W300i is small and neat but still packs all the features you might expect. A 256Mb internal memory powers the MPS player and an FM radio is also included. Rip CD's easily with the...

Excellent phone lovely buttons the MP3 player I find is better than a real iPod! Well worth the money a lovely creation

A solid walkman phone that is let down a little by its irritating keypad. If you need a small handset with great music playback this is a good choice.

Interesting design, Walkman playback

Tiny keypad

Sony Ericsson W300i Cell Phone (GSM, Bluetooth, 20MB, Memory Stick Micro)

 

Music lovers no longer have to pay a premium for a music phone. The $180 (with a two-year contract from Cingular) Sony Ericsson W300i comes with a music player, radio, and camera built in. It does the job both as a phone and music player, but the music...

Nice, compact design ; Plays music well

Lacks exterior buttons ; Doesn't allow playlist creation on PC

This budget music phone sports a light, compact design, but is a little hard to navigate.

Sony Ericsson W300i

 

One of the best values for money right now, Sony Ericsson's W300i delivers excellent sound quality, reception, and game-playing performance in a phone with decent multimedia features—for as little as $30 with a contract.

Excellent call quality, reception, battery life, PC connectivity, and music capabilities for the price

No stereo Bluetooth. Speakerphone should be louder

A full-fledged music phone for the price of two CDs? Sign us up, especially considering the all-around quality of this attractive flip phone.
