Review: Sony Ericsson W600
Jan 18, 2006, 4:00 PM by Eric Lin
In-depth review of the new Sony Ericsson W600 Walkman phone for Cingular.
AD article continues below...
The W600 doesn't just look like a swiss army knife, it acts like one too. Like the knife, the W600 offers a lot of tools in a relatively convenient package. But like the knife, the more tools that get added, the larger it becomes and the more mediocre each tool becomes. The W600 packs a lot of options into one reasonably-sized package. If you don't want to carry around an iPod or digital camera in addition to your cell phone, this phone is a good choice, but it won't replace either of those gadgets for serious use.

The Xperia X is an unlocked Android smartphone that Sony is selling directly to consumers. The phone departs from Sony's Xperia Z series in ways that are both good and bad.
Review: Sony Xperia Z3 for T-Mobile
Sony's Xperia Z3 is an excellent addition to T-Mobile's lineup. Anyone invested in Sony's gaming and content services would do well to consider it.

1. unlocked W600 with neutral software. this means you'll have to set up your browsing, mms, and other goodness using sony ericsson's online configurator (which is easy)
2. headphone adapter cord with microphone, multi function button and 3.5 mm headphone jack
3. in-ear headphones for said adapter (nice ones, too)

7. a walkman themed game of twister, including a full size twister mat.
how to win:
simply post in this ...
The camera is a good 1.3M for a camera phone, though the Nokia 6682 pictures come out a bit sharper.
And for the music portion... forget the ROKR and get the W600.
I'm a previous owner of the T237
and now own the T68i.
I've been looking to upgrade my phone
and Phone-Scoop has been a great resource
to help narrow down the selection.
I have to add that the site/user reviews have
Oh and "i hope i win."
And, YES, I do hope I win!
Oh yea, and I hope I win
Gee, "i hope i win"!
I HOPE I WIN!!!
No, I really hope I win.
I promise not to Whine!! I have service already with a compatible carrier.
I have not gotten a new phone in the past year without checking it on Phonesccop.com first! That's the honest truth!!
I guess if I win I won't have to replace my phone with Monster energy drink coursing through its wiring. Apparently when you pour half a can of Monster onto your Moto V551 not only will it not have sou...

Of course it was just a simple random-number thing. For those versed in PHP and curious, it didn't amount to much more than:
- $winner = rand

This is kind of a test; if it goes well, we'll try to do one of these to go along with each of our In-Depth reviews.
We're using Google Video. It seems to start and play faster than most other things we tested.
We'd love to hear your feedback here:

I HOPE I WIN!!!
also just in case i dont win...i was just wondering where did you get the unlocked w600 since i cant seem to find one only w550s....thanks
bad reception? you're kidding.
I work in a canyon area near thousand oaks where i can only get reception outdoors - and only if i'm using a phone with 800MHz GSM capabilities. But not only can the w600 make and recieve calls outdoors at my office, but it will hold onto a usable signal indoors. No other GSM phone i have tested can do this - including the razr and 6230b.
I will say, however, that the w600 is rather slow at regaining signal after it has been lost - possibly because it's quad-band.
Oh, and beware of the white screen of death (screen goes white - phone never works again). It's already happened ...
Dude how do you get these phones for free?
Voice Recorder and iSync Questions
Also, can you sync the phone and all multi-media (including voice recordings) with a Mac?
I HOPE I WIN
VIVA LA VERIZON!
anychance you will sell me the phone for $50-100?
We announced the rules. It wouldn't be fair to everyone else if we just canceled the giveaway.
nice reviw eric...........oh
when did the price of the w600i differ from the s710a?
Fantastic review Eric
