Sony Ericsson W810i
in April 2006, The Sony Ericsson W810i is the upgraded version of the highly
acclaimed and massively popular Sony Ericsson W800i, the first Walkman™
branded mobile phone.
are a few physical differences between the W810i and the W800i: the W810i is
slightly thinner, has raised keys instead of embedded keys, and has a 5-way
navigation button instead of the W800i's slightly awkward joystick. Apart from
this external makeover, the differences between the W810i and the W800i are
minor. The W810i has the advantage of EDGE (for faster internet access) an is quadband instead of triband. It also has Fast Port
- a system connector that enables faster data transfer from phone to PC and PC
to phone, and which also serves as a charging port.
W810i is designed to be an outstanding music player phone, and it succeeds. The
media player supports both MP3 and AAC formats and audio quality is superb. Mega
Bass™ enhances bass frequencies for a better overall music experience. There's
loads of memory for storing music, as the W810i comes bundled with a 512 Mbyte Memory Stick PRO Duo™ - enough to store up to 20
full-length audio CD's. The memory stick is expandable to 1 Gbyte.
Software for ripping CD's is supplied. In addition to the MP3 player there's an
FM radio with RDS. A quality headset is included in the sales package, and the
W810i can also be connected to an external speaker system via an optional
imaging side, the W810i has the same 2-megapixel camera as the W800i. This
features autofocus, for sharper images, a 4x digital
zoom, camera light and a video recorder. It's one of the best camera phones
available, and has an outstanding screen to accompany it.
is excellent too, with support for all types of external connections:
Bluetooth, USB, Infra-red, Fast port plus fast
internet connectivity using EDGE.
W810i is a phone that cannot be faulted. Unless you choose 3G or a smartphone, the W810i offers the best that you can possibly
get from a phone in the year 2006.
