Compare W890i Grey Deals

The Sony Ericsson W890i in undestated grey is an ultra-thin (only 9.9 mm), lightweight (78g) yet robust solid bar 3G phone, with outstanding multi-media capabilities in the true Sony tradition.

It features the Walkman 3.0 player with the SensMe (it was the first mobile to offer this) as a new way of browsing music. The player supports all the popular music file formats such as MP3 and RealAudio 8 and the sound can be enhanced with a MegaBass equalizer preset.

There is a fine 3.2 megapixel camera with Sony’s own Cyber-shot SE v2  and fast photo browser, displayed on the 2-inch (diagonal) screen

For internet, you cannot currently do better than 3G/HSDPA with EDGE (where 3G is unavailable) for fast downloads. The W890i is a quad-band phone, so capable of international roaming and there is Bluetooth with A2DP support for wireless data transfer, along with USB for cabled connection between compatible devices such as a laptop.

Naturally, it comes with a full range of personal organiser functions, from stopwatch to phone book.

There is only 32 Mbytes’ internal memory but it comes with 2 GB of add-on card storage. Battery life is rated at up to 9.5 hours’ talk time and 360 hours on standby from a full charge.
