SE W600i music phone now available from Cingular

So, you want a music phone but don’t want to break the bank? Well Cingular is coming to the rescue: they are now carrying the Sony Ericsson W600i. The chic-looking spinner phone comes with 256MB of internal memory, but unfortunately is not expandable, so if you’re looking to load up this Walkman phone for a long road trip, you might be just a bit disappointed. There is no way that you’ll be able to compress 100 decent quality songs onto this thing, and it won’t take PlaysForSure DRM WMAs.

That said, this quadband phone comes with all the basics, and if you’re not looking for anything too fancy, this could very well fit the bill. You could splurge for a SE W800 or K750, but keep in mind that those two phones are tri-band, so if you’re living in an area with limited service, you may not get any reception with those, but you likely would with the W600i.

A tad on the chubby side (93 x 47 x 23 mm), but it comes with an adequate 1.8” 262K colour screen—the same found on W800 or K750. Other features include a 1.3 MP camera, EDGE data transfer, Bluetooth, FM radio, and some good games (Worms, Gauntlet, and Extreme Air Snowboard).

Pick up the vibrant orange phone for $300 straight-up, or $200 with a two-year contract with Cingular.
