In the wake of Apple iPod’s phenomenal success it was but natural for Sony to revive its once iconic ‘Walkman’ brand in some form or the other. The W800i from Sony-Ericsson (SE) is the first cell to sport the ‘Walkman’ logo and holds a lot of promise.
Weighing just 99 gms and measuring 100 X 47 X 21 mm,the W800i is compact and light; but dont be fooled by its dimunutive for it packs some mean features.The 1.8 inch 262k colour screen is bright and crystal clear. The 176 X 220 pixel screen renders colours vividly and is a good aide for playing games and browsing through photos.
The joystick and the keypad on W800i are good-sms gurus will love it! The UI is pretty much the same and unchanged.The W800i comes with a classy 2MP digicam. On the phone side the W800i is graced with GPRS, High Speed Circiut Switch Data, and offers Triband support. For short range communication Bluetooth, Infrared and USB 1.1 port is offered. The phone comes with 38MB of internal memory and a Memory Stick Duo slot which can be used with the bundled 512 MB card.
