Yay! I didn’t expect to get my super-special present a week before Christmas and now I am a happy owner of the Sony Ericsson W550i, otherwise known as “the other Walkman phone.” All I can say is that it’s damn good ~ well, at least better than the basic phone I had before this.
What I was thinking before buying: “Oh gee, these unscrupulous merchants have jacked up cellphone prices just because it’s Christmas. But since I might spend the money on something else, sige bilhin na nga! (Go ahead, I’ll buy it!)”
Total damage: 15K at the Robinsons Manila Telecoms World
What I like about this phone:
256 MB of internal memory (sorely needed for storing my large number of contacts)
1.3 megapixel cam
user-friendly nav key on the front panel
great sound quality, great voice reception
slim & handy form factor
not only has an FM radio but is definitely a Walkman music player
easy transfer of songs from PC to phone with Disc2Phone software
cheaper than its brother, the W800
the keypad feels awkward at first and takes getting used to
“missed calls” from a single number list only the last time called
the “twist” mechanism which I don’t get the rationale for. Why doesn’t SE just have a slider?
