A crowd pleaser

from Wired

The recipe for cooking up a sweet multimedia phone? Take one part phone, mix two parts MP3 player, throw in some cool backlit buttons to impress the kids. Blend until creamy.

Sony Ericsson appears to have whipped up a crowd pleaser with the w995a. It features everything you'd expect from a music- and video-centric phone, with a couple bonuses to round out the package. Unfortunately, usability drawbacks and a lack of memory keep this from being the perfect multimedia phone...

Sony Ericsson appears to have whipped up a crowd pleaser with the w995a. It features everything you'd expect from a music- and video-centric phone, with a couple bonuses to round out the package. Unfortunately, usability drawbacks and a lack of memory keep this from being the perfect multimedia phone.

The elegantly designed w995a doesn't deserve its awkward alphanumeric name. At 4 ounces, it sits comfortably in the hand, and the mechanism for sliding up the screen and exposing the keypad felt solid even after repeated use.
