Sony Ericsson W580i review -

 

The fitness apps and Walkman music player are incredibly useful if you?re embarking on an exercise programme

The music player shake controls work OK but don?t enhance usability

Sony Ericsson W580i review

 

The Sony Ericsson W580i is a stylish slider phone aimed at the youth market but behind the bling and gimmicks lies a very capable handset

Walkman 2.0 software ; 2 megapixel camera ; Pedometer ; Mood lighting

Small viewfinder ; Lack of camera feature

A sexy slider phone with fantastic music and fitness features

Sony Ericsson W580i

 

The Sony Ericsson W580i has - like all the other Sony Ericsson Walkman mobile phones - a good feature set. My W580i was the 'Style White' colour. It's not white - it's a light silver colour, but heck let's call it white.

Music player, Pretty colour effects, Looks good

No 3G, Memory card slot, Back cover, No camera flash, No camera auto focus, Keypad

Sony Ericsson W580i

 

While the Sony Ericsson W580i comes from the Walkman line-up, it caters for the younger audience, people leading active life-stile and music-aficionados addicted to communication. The model was initially planned as a youth-aimed offering, and the maker...

The W580i is another above average Walkman phone. Although the design isn't our cup of tea, the built-in pedometer is a nice touch, and should ensure this is another popular handset in the range.

Built-in pedometer and fitness application, "ShakeIt" Walkman shuffle, 2 megapixel camera, TrackID, strong features list, battery life

Controls, colour scheme, cramped keypad

Review: Sony Ericsson W580i

 

If it weren't for the you-know-what-Phone, Sony Ericsson's latest would be the music mobile to beat. Though not as graphically inspiring as its sleek rival,...

Half-inch thin. Super light (3.3 ounces). Browser provides easy Gmail and Google Maps access. 256-MB memory card in box. Unique extras like TrackID, mini music sequencer, and video editor

No camera flash. Sorta pointless shuffle feature requires you to press a button, then shake
