Compare W850i Grey Deals

Sony Ericsson’s W850i in battleship grey was the first slide phone in its Walkman series. At 98 x 47 x 21 mm, it is compact but solid in the palm, weighing a comfortable 116g. A 3G phone, reverting to GPRS/EDGE where 3G is unavailable, you can be confident of fast internet and messaging facilities (SMS, MMS, email), but it is the audio that brings this stylish device to the fore.

It comes with a 2 megapixel camera with 4 x digital zoom and video recorder. A second camera just above the main screen is for 3G video calling. Results are displayed on its 2-inch screen at 240 x 320 pixels resolution.

The W850i offers a Walkman 2.0 music player and integrated FM radio with RDS (text information provided by the radio station) with TrackID™ (discover the name of a track playing on the radio and name of the artist). Audio can be tweaked by Mega Bass to enhance the bass frequency. You can also preview and download music, games, videos and images via PlayNow, accessed with three button clicks.

It has 64 Mbytes’ internal memory and a Memory Stick PRO Duo card slot for additional storage. Battery life is rated at nine hours’ talk time or 400 hours on standby from a full charge.
