Sony Ericsson W960i review

 

Highest end Walkman has some dazzling features, but it's not the easiest to use

Great 3.2 megapixel camera with good editing features ; Useful 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity ; Generous 8GB internal storage ; Simple touchscreen interface

Occasionally slow operation ; Awkward to navigate ; Battery life isn't great ; No memory card expansion

The top-of-the-range Walkman is certainly packed with features, it's just a shame it isn't a bit easier to use.

Sony Ericsson W960i

 

Complete with a touch display, decent camera and 8GB of storage, is this mobile phone a significant improvement over its predecessor?

I don't understand why these two groups aren't conflated into one, and no, you can't alter the structure. Once you are experienced with the phone it's probably not a significant point, but there is a definite learning curve.

Sony Ericsson W960i review

 

Most Sony Ericsson Walkman phones are small, inexpensive models. The W960i is Sony's flagship Walkman phone: an expensive, fully fledged smartphone as well as a music player.

The W960i is a huge improvement on its predecessor and looks destined to become our favourite Walkman phone. Heck, we might even sell our Nano

Sony Ericsson - W960i

 

Sony Ericsson is probably best known for its Walkman and Cybershot branded handsets, but the company also turns its hand to smartphones. There have been several smartphones over the years, all running the UIQ operating system. ...

With 8GB of storage, a touch-screen and full smartphone credentials, it is a real shame that the user interface lets things down for this music-playing smartphone.

Comparative review: Sony Ericsson W960i vs Nokia N81 8Gb

 

It has been almost a year since the last time we put two music-minded handsets face to face " as you probably remember, back then these were the SE W880i and Samsung F300. The former held the upper hand, although the F300 was more than a passable...

Probably, the second part of the preface should explain ourselves, why did we pick these handsets. First of all, they are two rivals, smartphones with boatloads of memory onboard and some other things in common. Secondly, to a greater or lesser extent,...

Sony Ericsson W960i

 

The Walkman that's also a smarty-pants

A successful fusion of smartphone and Walkman, the W960i certainly has plenty of latent potential as a gaming device, but it remains to be seen if developers will take up the challenge

The 100k install runs as expected on my N95-1 and, accepting the normal privacy and legal notices, it drops the application icon into the usual folder.
