Very disappointed

This review is disappointing.

The W760a is one the of best media phones (non-PDA) phones out for any carrier right now. It's incredibly sturdy, and these keys are NOT hard to find or press.

We have sold plenty of these phones out of our store and aside from the V9x, I would recommend it for everyone wanting something less than a PDA.

I don't understand this "Stephen Wolpin's" incessant use of the word "gimmick" in this review. Like seriously, wtf is a gimmick on this phone? It all performs fine.

For anyone not too sure, here is a definition of the word gimmick:

A device employed to cheat, deceive, or trick, especially a mechanism for the secret and dishonest control of gambling apparatus.

Now you effing tell me, what part of the W760a does that? What part of the W760 is employed to cheat, deceive or trick the end user?

The only real gimmick here is this review. With this review, I expected to be able to read an honest explanation of how the features in the phone worked from an objective point of view, but it couldn't be far from it.

Where do you think most people in the US (the primary reader of this site) will get a Sony W760? A Sony Style store? At Sony's website? I don't think so, they'll get it from AT&T. And the Sony W760 is not offered at AT&T, the Sony W760a is. The review covers the unbranded version of the phone that deceives most unsuspecting readers into thinking there is no e-mail client, and that the phone will support MS Exchange (why the hell would ANYONE want MS Exchange on a Sony W760?). The phone that most people will get does have IM, and does not have MS Exchange.

I am very surprised this review was allowed to be posted on this excellent site. It is obvious that there was some questioning as to its validity here:

"Printed beneath the Send and End keys are two open spaces, the one under the End key imprinted with a "C" and under the Send key an icon that looks like two layered pieces of paper [not really sure what you mean here]."

Yeah, what DO you mean here? WTF DOES THAT EVEN MEAN. HOW CAN YOU HONESTLY PUBLISH SUCH NONSENSE. Do you think that will help anyone understand what the keys are actually like?

Gdi I am just done with this. Sorely, sorely disappointed.
