Sony Ericsson W508a mobile phone

 

Sony Ericsson's latest Walkman W508a flip phone boasts an excellent display

Internal and external displays, gesture control, TrackID, Walkman software, 1GB M2 card included

Touch sensitive music controls aren’t responsive enough, keypad is flat and uncomfortable, no 3.5mm headphone jack

Touch sensitive music controls aren’t responsive enough, keypad is flat and uncomfortable, no 3.5mm headphone jack

The Sony Ericsson W508a follows a similar lead to previous, mid-range Walkman mobile phones. It’s relatively inexpensive, best described as solid and has an excellent display. It won’t wow you with its features list, but it doesn’t need to.

Sony Ericsson W508a (XT)

 

It finally happened – we managed to get our paws on Telecom's new range of phones, introduced to help customers get the most out of its brand new XT Mobile Network. The important thing to note is that XT is a 3G-only network, so you can expect that...

The Sony Ericsson W508a is a fun and stylish phone designed for the music lover. We are the first country to get this phone and Telecom is carrying it on its new XT Network. It delivers up to three hours of talk time and up to 400 hours on standby....
