Sony Ericsson Walkman W600, Stocking Stuffer

  1. I agree, the W600i is a great phone. I’d have to respectfully disagree on the 256MB = 30 minutes though. If you use iTunes, highlight a number of tracks and down at the bottom, you should see the MB size and audio length. In just one of my playlists, I have 26 songs equaling 1.6 hours, and it’s only 100MB.

    Remember, the W600i can also play unprotected AAC files, so that can help cut down on file size as well.

  2. i am pretty sure it depends on how is your music encoded. i think if you are like me, who likes to encode at 192 kbps bit rate, the files tend to be really big and you can’t fit in too much stuff. however, if you went with aac or lower rate of encoding, it surely can pack in about 100 songs. its a trade of space versus quality in many ways.

  3. What about the rootkit? Sorry, it’s just that anything that has “Sony” and “music” together takes my mind directly to one place.

    Sure, the rootkit ref is sarcasm … but the other part is truth. It’s simply how I think now: Sony + music = bad mojo.

    I guess that name recognition and brnading thing works both ways.

  4. Mel,

    I own this phone and it’s awesome. Also supports Cingular’s EDGE network and full bluetooth support to your PC.

    Om,

    The PC software has support to reencode (downsample) on the fly to your w600, so your 192kbps songs can stay that way but be 96 or something on your phone which really makes it hold quite a bit.

  5. I bought this phone for my son from Cingular a week ago for $300, got a $100 rebate and talked the guy into another $50 rebate since they offer it on-line. Radio Shack has some sweet deals on this one and the razor. He loved the phone at first and the walkman rocks. Yesterday the phone wigged out and the pixels on the screen are all messed up and it keeps going white. I took it back to Cingular and they’re going to replace it tomorrow cause they’re all out of stock till then. I know the guy and he said that he hasn’t heard of anyone else having problems. Anyone have this going on?
