Sony Ericsson W580 review: Stay fit and entertained

Review: Sony Ericsson W580i

 

The iPhone isn't the only new music phone on AT&T. The W580i packs a big sound into a tiny slider. With video tour.

Sony Ericsson W580 music phone

Sony Ericsson W580i review

 

Walkman goes all slidey

Walkman music player ; Sturdy build ; Slider

Average camera ; Flimsy memory card cover

A slider addition to the Walkman range that covers all the basics well as well as keeping that good music playin', music searchin' and music identifyin' groove
