SE W380i Mobile Phone ReviewPosted on 2008-03-01 21:09:15 by Thomas De Maesschalck
It’s not every day we get the chance to take a look at a pre-production mobile phone here at TweakTown, but this time we’ve managed to get you an exclusive preview of Sony Ericsson’s upcoming W380i handset which is expected to launch in early March. This is a new handset in the Walkman line of handsets from the company, and in all fairness this is the most exciting feature of the handset. The reason for this is the three touch sensitive buttons on the front of the flip, as they look more like a part of the design rather than actual buttons.
There is a play/pause button, skip track/fast forward button and reverse button. When you touch them they light up with a nice blue glow. The handset also has a small front mounted LCD display which is text only, but when it’s turned off you can’t even see that it’s there. It will display a wide range of information such as the current playing track, radio station frequency and incoming calls; while in standby it will also show the time, signal and battery status.
