Sony Ericsson W580i review

 

Walkman goes all slidey

Walkman music player ; Sturdy build ; Slider

Average camera ; Flimsy memory card cover

A slider addition to the Walkman range that covers all the basics well as well as keeping that good music playin', music searchin' and music identifyin' groove

Sony Ericsson W580 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

If you are looking for Walkman phone with a couple of added benefits this will fit the bill nicely

SensMe, TrackID, design, Blogger tool, built-in pedometer

Shake feature bit of a gimmick, only 2 megapixel camera

If you are looking for Walkman phone with a couple of added benefits, but not looking for one of the company's higher specced models, this will fit the bill nicely. The phone comes with enough memory to store 470 songs on the included Sony Memory Stick...

Sony Ericsson W580i

 

In the past, we have employed various methods of testing, but none as rigorous as the one that was employed for the W580i. Before any revelations, we must tell you that this was neither our intention nor a procedural norm while testing phones.

Often in the past, SE has managed to compromise on comfort for the dashing designs it's so famous for. With the W580i, one may notice that SE seems to have struck gold. The phone is not only good to look at, but also feels right. The features may not...

Sony Ericsson W580 review: Stay fit and entertained

 

Finally, the Sony Ericsson W580 arrived at our test site – a music phone featuring a slim sliding construction, light effects and a pedometer to fulfill all your daily music and sports needs. The handset comes complete with a 2 megapixel camera, stereo...

Intriguing design at only 14 mm thickness ; Comfortable keypad ; 2" 262K color TFT display with a QVGA resolution ; Light effects ; 2 megapixel camera ; Memory Stick Micro card slot ; Walkman 2.0 music player ; FM radio with RDS ; Bluetooth with A2DP...

Only 12MB of integrated memory ; Sliding mechanism little shaky ; No notification of missed events ; Camera lacks flash and autofocus ; Records video in the outdated QCIF (176 x 144 pixels) resolution only ; Phone won't operate without SIM

The Swedish-Japanese maker has added another slider to its Walkman lineup. The Sony Ericsson W580 joins the more feature-rich but older Sony Ericsson W850 in the company's music slider portfolio. The flagship in this form factor will be the fashionable...

Sony Ericsson W580i

 

The Sony Ericsson W580i is the latest mid-range handset for the multimedia-focused Walkman range. The handset was announced back at the CTIA Wireless Trade Show in March in the US.

Although the W580i’s specifications aren’t amazing, the handset will appeal to a reasonably large niche market. The sports-related functions are handy, but are barely even mentioned on the official website and potential buyers may not even realise the...
