Other features include high data transfer rate with HSDPA/HSUPA and WiFi, Internet Explorer Mobile, aGPS, stereo Bluetooth with A2DP, Windows Media Player Mobile, FM Radio, Java, USB support and yes, it has MMS.

Mobile IE sucks! The phone itself looks pretty nice though. I would like to see Opera on this thing!

Good looking phone. As long as it has Exchange Active Sync and is not tied to a slow EDGE network I am all over it.

The iPhone is a beautiful phone, but no 3G, no Exchange Active Sync and tied to Cingular were deal breakers.

I think is very nice,but i also think it cost too in Africa precisely Ghana.I wont to ask if you can open your outlets here in Ghana so that it will reduce the price for us.

by NOname on Feb 12, 2008

It cost money everywhere not only in Ghana... You guys think we get everything free.....

by Esteban on Feb 12, 2008

Yes... here in Guatemala, is expensive too, we are poor like you Ghana, don┤t be patetic!!!!

I think Iphone is better than this one, maybe the next model :D

by mckay on Feb 16, 2008

I like the design and because it will have activesync I will switch from the Iphone...I am tired of syncing with the laptop...Bye Bye Iphone...

i think the n96 is greater than this one...
speaking of features,it can't surpass the features
of the nokia n96...and i know nokia is creating another phone today as a successor of tne nokia n96...anyway this phone is nice than to iphone...well the next model of sony erricson will be surely amazing than this one...

by kc ventura on Apr 21, 2008

I agree, it looks like a bit of mix between a sidekick and iPhone, in a high-tech way.

My mother says as long as its UNDER or less than 700-600, she would get two. It looks mighty expensive.

And no offense, iPhones are WAY overrated. My brother dropped his twice (and it has PADDING) and it's already having malfunctions. Though I have to admit both SKLX is amazing to look at, I want a phone which no one really has.

It's cute (: can't wait till it comes out.
peace from new york.
