If you have plans of purchasing a new phone that’s somewhere in between being a good phone and being a cool music player then lemme tell you about what’s Globe brewing for the Sony Ericsson W8.
First of all, a little something about the Sony Ericsson W8.
This basically is the first SE Walkman to run in android and holds a number of okay features that make this a fine phone to own. Here are some specifications taken from the Sony Ericsson official website:
- 320 x 480 pixels (HVGA)
- 16,777,216 color TFT
- Phone memory up to 128MB
- MicroSD™ support (up to 16 GB)
* Actual free memory may vary due to phone pre-configuration.
- GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900
- UMTS/HSPA 900/2100
- UMTS/HSPA 850/1900/2100
- azure – Orange – Red
- 99.0 x 54.0 x 15.0 mm
- 3.9 x 2.1 x 0.6 inches
- 104.0 gr
- 3.7 oz
I guess you could say Sony must have put some extra effort in the music player (because this is what Walkman phones are known for) so I’ll wait till I see some actual extra features in this phone before I make any say about this phone.
Anyway, Globe is making this phone available for you if you subscribe to a My Super Surf Plan 999. That means you can get this phone totally free along with the Super Surf Plan 999. (I would recommend the Android phone with the plan because of Android’s cool connection to the online world e.g. social networking apps, games, browser etc..)
Along with the Plan you get to have the free SE Media Speaker Stand (yey!) and 3 Bundled exclusive Glee tracks.
This offer is an online promo so you can only avail of it through this LINK.
