Tech Tuesdays on Empty Streets: Sony Ericsson W960 and Xperia X1

Posted 6:30 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,
It is christmas time and I have been contemplating on what gadget to make an investment on and quite frankly I have been Sony Ericsson's Latest Phones - W960 and Xperia X1.

I'd like to talk about the one currently available in the Philippines since the start of this year which is the Sony Ericsson W960

This phone is quite fully packed and has been said to rival the IPhone released by Mac and first glance it does have a lot of features that is similar to that of the phone it is contending. It has a lot of factors though that make it stand out and basically you'd be caught by surprise as to how cheap this phone is compared to that of the newly released IPhone. Touch Screen, WIFI, Bluetooth all of which makes data transfer a breeze. In terms of sound quality it has Sony Walkman to back it up and a pretty cool auto focus 3.2 Megapixel camera and video makes cutting edge in terms of phones as a multi purpose machine. In terms of style and overall feel and look we'd give it an 8 as it definitely draws attention once someone whips it out. Overall we'd rate it an 8.5.

Here is a commercial to help you see for yourself what this little phone has to offer.

This is a phone that I still have to wait for but based on what I have seen in reviews and commercials made by Sony Ericsson, this is one phone to reckon with. Loaded with features such as full touch screen usage and a Qwerty Keyboard to text with is rather quite appealing. Horizontal web page viewing and interactive touch screen saver makes me shudder in excitement to actually get my hands on it and try it out as soon as it hits the market. What made my jaw drop in amazement though was the touch screen autofocus selection function that allows you to choose what object your phone is going to focus on (Macro shot functionality is off the scale) before you even take the shot. Unfortunately the down side to this new phone is it isnt available here as of yet and I am sure based on the way it was presented it may come with a hefty price tag as well. So for now a modest 8 is what we would rate this particular gadget overall.

Here is a commercial that demonstrates how amazing this phone is - It is surreal:

As to which phone to ask Santa Clause this Xmas - I still cant decide but like every kid in the world needs to do is to make up our mind before Mr Santa gets on his sleigh. :) till the next article xoxo

Hi Xanfactor,

am glad to hear that you like this brand too :) as for the camera - wickedly amazing is all I can say - though it is still a bit far off as compared to the Regular 10 Megapixel cameras in comparison but great everyday pictures nonetheless. :)

Hi Metz.
Great Christma gifts, I wouldn´t mind having one, lol.
Sorry I´m not returning drops with my food blog and Countryhome. I´m having a PC problem. I´m doing drops with IE and it takes forever, uffa!
So, this way I can only assure my two other blog´s drops.
Thanks for understanding...

My son has got his Sony Ericsson phone. :)

Wow! I'm not so informed about cell phones but this seems good. Where did my son get his info? :)

Hi Metz! I just love this gadget! OMG! :-) Hehe, I plan to buy some gadgets this month, once my adsense earnings is paid by Uncle Google.

But if you are having a hard time thinking what to give to me this Christmas, worry no more my friend. I will help you - this one is definitely "just alright" with me. Hehe

bloggista said...

Ohh, by the way, you won a Domain - so let me know what domain name you want me to buy for you, since you are a very special friend, I will host it in one of my hosting accounts, and will install your wordpress blog with plugins.

Hey Snow, where are you, I guess I can do that for you too. :-)

Hey Metz! I got a Sony Ericsson for B once, but it wasn't too user-friendly, so we sold it to someone! Maybe I should give Sony another chance, this one sure looks cool! :):):)

Since Steve Jobs announced the "iPhone" at MacWorld early last year, iPhone became my favorite. :)

Hi Marzie,

I have to admit that it is true that there are several sony ericsson phones that are a bit of a pain to use but these babies are toys that one would love to learn to play with heheehe and I just wish i can get one like this for xmas soon hehehe :)

Hi iWalk,

I just saw you are in tibet again that is so cool. :) I also have to agree with you that iPhones do have a huge advantage since it is backed by mac and steve jobs but in all totality am still a regular kind of guy hehehe and am happy with more functionalities than i could possibly need hehehe :)
