Sony Ericsson W950i

The Good Large colour touchscreen; 4GB of on-board memory; 3G connectivity; stereo Bluetooth.

The Bad Flat keypad; lack of built-in 3.5mm headphone jack; lack of camera.

The Bottom Line The W950i is one of Sony Ericsson's best Walkman phones so far. If you want a music phone that can hold up to 1,000 songs and gives you access to a plethora of services then the W950i is definitely worth a look. Unfortunately, it's really let down by its keypad -- you should test it out before you commit to buying

Sony Ericsson W950i

Announced way back in February 2006, Sony Ericsson's W950i was hailed as the ultimate music phone. With an iPod-rivalling 4GB of memory, a large colour touchscreen and 3G connectivity, it seemed like the ideal mobile to replace many of the gadgets you carry around.

Now it's finally here, some, if not all, of the shine has worn off this mobile. Available for free on a monthly contract or for about £360 SIM-free, it's ideal for listening to music, but the unusual keypad and touchscreen combination doesn't work well, and there's no camera.

Design
The W950i might not be the most flamboyant handset ever designed, but we prefer to think of it as possessing a retro, '80s quality.
