Sony Ericsson W960i: Touch 'n' play

Posted by Simpur | Posted in , , | Posted on Friday, January 18, 2008

The W960i was perhaps one of the most highly anticipated phones by the Sony Ericsson faithful last year, and it certainly lives up to that billing. The W960i is the latest, and without doubt the most feature- packed handset to come from Sony Ericsson's ever-so-popular Walkman line.

Probably Sony Ericsson's answer to the Nokia N95 8GB, the W960i has 8GB of storage space, a large TFT touchscreen display, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, and of course, 3G connectivity.

Key features:

  • Walkman Touch music player

  • Symbian OS 9.1 with UIQ 3.0

  • 3G connectivity, with video calls

  • Wi-Fi support

  • 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus, 3x digital zoom
  • 8GB of storage space
  • 262K color TFT touchscreen display
  • Handwriting recognition
  • FM radio

  • Stereo Bluetooth (with 3.5 mm adapter included)

There are, however, a couple of setbacks, the phone's lack of HSDPA (3.5G) connectivity might put some tech enthusiasts off, especially when new technologies come and go very quickly. The lack of a navigation pad too, could be a setback for those who prefer a more tactile feedback when browsing through the phone's menus.

All in all, the W960i is still the phone to die for, easily offering more than any other Sony Ericsson Walkman phone has ever done before.

The Sony Ericsson W960i is available at Incomm for B$938.00, with further discounts when you present your DST Card.
