Sony Ericsson M600i

 

Sony Ericsson's P-series touch-screen Smartphones have been very successful with the business segment and it's been a while since the once reigning P910i came out.

The UIQ interface never went down too well with me and I had the same set of problems with the M600i UI. Some trivial operations take longer with the neverending chain of commands required. Take, for example, changing the ringtone of your phone. From...

Sony Ericsson M600i

 

Full disclosure up front:  The Sony Ericsson m600i smartphone is not for everyone.  It has some quirks and flaws, and the fact that it's only compatible with European high speed networks is a major shortcoming for a smartphone to be used in the U.S....

Sony Ericsson M600i review | PhoneDog

 

Sony Ericsson's m600i will not become a best seller in the United States, and that's too bad because it's a powerful and unique mobile phone. The primary hurdle it faces in the US is SE's own doing - it's a European phone that lacks support for any...

Review: Sony Ericsson M600i

 

While it didn't win us over right away, the somewhat quirky Sony Ericsson M600 eventually managed to soften our stone hearts. This pretty little device has a lot of functionality in a design barely larger than a Motorola RAZR V3.

Small/light, attractive, A2DP Bluetooth stereo, compact QWERTY keyboard

UI issues, a number of bugs, no WiFi, no softkeys or joystick

The Sony Ericsson M600i should start to ship worldwide inQ2 2006, with different keyboard arrangements for those countries that do not use a "QWERTY" layout.There's also an M600c for mainland China.

Sony Ericsson M600i

 

Sony Ericsson M600 - Symbian OS 9.1 and UIQ 3.0 enabled phone offering 3G network support, Bluetooth, Memory Stick Micro expansion, touch screen, handwriting recognition and QWERTY keyboard.

Many have said that the M600 is just an interim model by Sony Ericsson to capture market while waiting for P990. I can't help to think of consumer being guinea pig to test/iron out firmware on the mass market on UIQ-3 platform so as to layout the...

1st I would like to say that I had been looking at this phone ever since its release, but was hesitant due to keypad and bug issues. Now that the phone has been discontinued I decided to pick one up and I have to say im glad I did. I have had a long...
