Sony Ericson W800i - A Smart Phone to Have?

Launched in August 2005, The Sony Ericsson W800i is virtually the same as the D750i and K750i, the difference being that the W800i is Sony Ericsson's first mobile phone to be Walkman™ branded. The clear message is that this is both a phone and an MP3 player.
The specification of the W800i is the same as the K750i, except that the W800i is customised for music. There's a one-touch music button for controlling the MP3 player, plus extra bundled software for ripping audio tracks from CDs. The W800i also comes with a larger memory stick for storing all those songs - 512 Mbytes may not sound a lot when compared with an iPod (or even an iPod Mini), but it's pretty large for a phone, and is enough for around 150 audio tracks. The memory stick is expandable to 1 Gbyte. A quality headset is included in the sales package, and the W800i can also be connected to an external speaker system via an optional cable.
Apart from these changes, the W800i has all the features of the K750i: a 2 megapixel camera and auto-focus, a video camera, FM radio, Bluetooth and triband. It's an excellent all-round media device - surpassed only by the
Sony Ericsson W900i and the new Sony Ericsson W810i.
