The phone is a good combination of looks, music, video playback, browsing and many more. A wireless earphone is more welcomed. The main thing which adds a zing in this phone is that it’s a touch screen slider. The phone also has many new walkman backgrounds like a recorder, cd player and gramophones running in background. The phone has no portrait mode in now playing UI only landscape. However the resolution is somewhat strange and no secondary camera for video calling are few negatives about this phone. The touch interface is only available in media and camera and above all it’s the first capacitive touch screen phone from Sony Ericsson. After seeing Satio, Aino and Yari from Sony Ericsson we can say that Sony Ericsson is changing now.
