Sony Ericsson W600i

It’s been a while since my last post. I have been busy with projects at work and had little time to play unfortunately. I did however buy a Sony ericsson W600i. I only had it working for 2 days though, as it was pretty much a brick the morning of day 3. It wouldn’t charge or even so much as light up. Needless to say, I RMA’d it right away.

In my short 2 day experience with this phone, I really loved it! Despite this obvious problem, it had excellent reception, and voice quality was great both on speakerphone and headset. It also does a good job at serving music despite its limited 256MB of space. My favorite features are elsewhere: Class 10 EDGE with fast Java. Programs such as Google Maps Mobile and Mobile GMaps looked and performed wonderfully on this little beast along with 3D Java games and other excellent utilities. Internet access through bluetooth was also a breaze and worked at a “blazing” 128kbps in most signal conditions here in the bay area.

Sony Ericsson W600iAs you can see I was pretty impressed with this phone. Unfortunately, what good is a cool phone if it won’t turn on? I am guessing the one I got was a just dud and Sony Ericsson will step up to the plate and deliver me a working long lasting unit. Stay tuned…Sony Ericsson W600i
