    i dont care about any other features. in fact, i would give up internet access, camera, maps, etc as long as the mp3 player feature kicks ass. ive heard the ups and downs of the iphone and bringing it up will more than likely lead to a giant clusterfuck, so let's try to stay away from that. what other cell phones do you guys have or heard of that are good for listening to mp3s?

    Sony's walkman phones or if you like iTunes, some of the Motorola phones (slvr, v3i, etc)

    Pretty much any SE Walkman branded phone. I believe the K550i and W610i currently have the longest length mp3 playback on the market for a phone, at around 25 hours. If you don't like bar phones, the W710i is also a great choice, and a great phone.

    You can put a 4gb stick in the SE W810.

    i read that on the webpage, but when i went to a cingular store they said it can only take 1gig. is it different for different countries or was the guy just clueless? i would like at least a gig of memory on my phone and 4 would be good for me. also, ive heard that if you run too much memory it can slow down a phone and make it lag. im leaning towards the w810i and if it can hold 2 or more gigs im pretty sure that's what i'll get, but i dont know what to believe at this point :confused:

    I would go for the W610i due to its thinner profile, better battery life (~25 hours mp3 playback, 7hr talk time), and walkman 2.0 interface and updated/faster UI. Its basically meant to replace the W810i. The only advantage the W810i has is a marginally better camera, support for a 4gb stick, and better keypad. The W610i takes Sony M2 sticks, and I believe those are currently limited to 2gb.

    ^ M2 sticks cost more per GB, too.


    When the w810 came out they listed support for the cards that were out at that time. Higher capacity cards have come out since then and people have used 4GB cards without trouble.

    the last 2 posts helped a lot guys, thanks! looks like the 610i is better for me. i think you're right about the m2 sticks being up to 2gigs--i was looking at em the other day with my friend. i'd be willing to sacrifice 2gigs for the extended playback and faster performance and the camera quality isn't an issue for me. if there's anything else you guys think i should know throw it out there. i appreciate all the feedback :hsughr:
