I’m in the market for a new cell phone myself, and I’m considering a Walkman phone because I’ve heard that they’re one of the best things out there if you want to pump tunes out of your mobile handset. I also have a significant soft spot for slider phones. By all indications, the W850i fits my slider-loving music-enjoying criteria to a tee, and based on this one minute video review from Shiny Media, it’s quite the adequate package.
As a refresher, key specs include a 2.0-inch QVGA display, 2.0 megapixel camera, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0 (they seem to really like 2.0, huh?), a nifty strobe light, and — of course — a fantastic integrated music player.
Pricing on the street, from what I can gather, is in the $400 to $500 range.
